Question about 5040A (with 6010A)

Question about 5040A (with 6010A)

I use the 6010A for quite a while now and I am very satisfied with their sound so far, but I consider getting the 5040A subwoofer to extend the low end of the 6010As. While looking at the specs/manual of the 5040A I was wondering about the range of the subwoofer level control (Min to Max) to adjust the level of the subwoofer. How much is the difference between Min and Max? I listen at low to mid levels right now and am just looking for a discreet low end. The room's size is about 12 m² and I don't want to bother my neighbours, so I try to keep it as unobtrusive as possible. Maybe anyone has some experience with this setup to share?

Thanks in advance!

Kind greetings,

Hello Tobias,

The difference between min and max is 18 dB which means that you have the possibility to turn the subwoofer either a little bit louder than the main speakers or turn it quite a bit lower than the main speakers. I'm certain that the level control is wide enough for your needs.
