Thank you for all the years of Community discussions and activity!

The time has come for us to retire the community forums, but we will keep everything available for reading. There is a lot of valuable content written over the years, and you'll be able to access all of that. However, no new posts can be written, or old posts modified.

Which model for Small Room

Youngling Posts: 1 Join Date: 4/25/18 Recent Posts


I have an opportunite to get one of the following pairs: 8040B or 8050B or 8240A (old model) or 8430APM as an Exchange with a Dealer.

I have a small Room 10'x11' (with irregular small entrance hall with 3'x4').

I would like to have more Bass to try some Synths (I´m a Keyboard player), and for small music productions with Live 10 and ProTools.

In fact, I don´t know if SAM will help me so much (8240A Old Version with SAM vs New Version of 8040B without SAM), or I get the 8050B for more bass (without SAM). Or 8430APM (ideal for the size of my desk with SAM).

Really crazy with this options, since I need to be focused on these models that the Dealer has in stock.

Please, I appreciate your comments. I need to decide for these weeks.
