Home Speaker Asylum

General speaker questions for audio and home theater.


"Almost inevitably, however, people who buy 2-way stand-mounted speakers end up also buying one or two real woofers (aka subwoofers)."

Nobody I know that owns decent monitors that at least go down to 40-45hz or so in room feels a need for subwoofers. Many of my friends live in small Manhattan apartments which are not conducive to 20hz bass - not to mention the paucity of notes that low.

If ya have something like a Proac Tablette I agree that you'd likely want a subwoofer. But there's a helluva lotta good monitors available nowadays that provide a satisfying degree of bass heft.
