Default Subwoofers

Anyone want to chime in? Anyone here got one? What you got? Do you like it??

I'm looking to add a subwoofer(s) to my HiFi, I'm thinking I want a sealed unit because the room isn't exactly massive and I hate bass boom. I've actually got the bass ports on my floor standers bunged because of boom, boom is shit.

I found a company called BK Electronics based in the UK, they manufactured subs for other companies before going solo and they've got an excellent rep.

I was thinking something like this http://www.bkelec.com/HiFi/Sub_Woofers/XXLS400FF.htm

Thoughts?

I swear to fuck, I was looking at setting up a passive PA with active xovers. Maybe some midhi tops with subs.

What's your setup mate, genuinely curious!?

Charlie you said you don't want boom and that your speakers have some oompf so maybe just leave it like it is?

Spot on, hate boom, you know when the bass hits that note and it just seems to reverberate and overpower everything else? Before I plugged the bass ports there was a lot of that and they sound much tighter now if ya know what I mean. Hence I was thinking a sealed sub would be nice.

But despite what monitor audio say about the speakers there's no real output below 40hz, I want to get a sub to fill in that last bit of the bottom. I ran a sweep at -10db and this is when I realised how much I was missing.

That is a 3000 watt Mackie PA system, all the amps are built in and of course is used for live band purposes.
This is the mixing desk -



I have 3 of these for monitors but they are also used as a small PA -



I also have two smaller PA systems based around Studiomaster mixer/amps and Celestion speakers.
