Pedal, don't start drilling ports in your good speakers. I closed mine too. I just open some doors once in a while. Happy

South East seems the wrong direction to me. South west is better.

Leif is living an hour drive South East of me. It's time to listen to his new bass towers. He probably has a reason to be soo proud and happy.

Speaking about bass performance. Lately I have been listening exclusively to hi-rez music, from various DVD-A, DualDiscs, downloads, etc.
-It's interesting to hear how the bass improves with hi-rez. Not only the treble. With hi-rez there is more texture and naturalness on both acoustic and electric bass (guitar). It has a very "analouge" feeling in the mid and upper bass. In the bottom octave, of course, there is more feel than hear. The room is shaking with a solidity never ever heard from vinyl.

In the past, every time I upgraded CD-drive or DAC, I got more natural sounding bass. Better definition, more texture, less mud. I guess it will improve further with the new PHASURE DAC, too. Changes of jitter values are audible in the bass too. It's not only a matter of cymbals!

Hey Gents,

Just reading this post and I have a question about reducing a bass node in the 50-60 Hz region. On my Mac G5 I use Amarra's paramteric EQ and can reduce this problem, although it looks from the posts above that you guys are recommending against this?

How would you reduce a bass bump such as the one using passive measures? When a song hits that deep region, the entire room is suddenly excited.

I am using a Zalman machine running XP and the latest release of XXHighend. Is there a decent para EQ plugin that will do a good job of just affecting this one region? Any suggestions?

Thanks!

If it is quite not extended, the BEST way would be to build a tuned helmholz resonator,then it would have to be integrated in the room for WAF reasons Happy

Active EQ is not that effective, but it is COST-effective when you have a rollercoaster in your LF and not just one peak.
