PrestonTom Posted May 1, 2015 Share Posted May 1, 2015 I think where I differ from the classic Klipsch approach is that I always hear some unwanted artifact in the folded bass bins. It's annoying enough that I prefer the distortion of the direct radiator, and then I can further justify that by the monitors used in the creation of the music I enjoy. Remember that the bass bins that you listened to in Hope were basically not EQed to remove the rather significant frequency response peaks in the 40-250 Hz band, and there are some really big peaks there that need taming (just like the Khorn bass bin). I'm not sure why those bass bins were not EQed out since so much effort was spent EQing the K-69-A/K-402, K-69-A/K-510, and TAD TD-4002/K-402 combinations to within +/- 1.5 dB. Do that to the bass bins and you'll hear something completely different--albeit preserving some rising LF response below the room's Schroeder frequency. At least one of the group there voiced a preference for "having that extra energy in the mid-bass region", an opinion that I didn't share, and have since found that taming it really changes the listening experience. Chris Chris, you caught my attention on this one. The recommended EV DX38 settings have PEQs at 180 and 300Hz to knock down those two peaks by about 4dB. Even after EQing the peaks are still there (but diminished). Have you set your filters to knock them down even more? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
