I'm making electronic music and i want to buy a new pair of Dynaudio BM5a speakers, but i wrote that they only can go down to 50 Hz.
Is this a big problem for mixing my music? I normaly cut everything below 40. Or is the BM6a a better choise because they can all away down to 40 Hz (the same as all the expensive ones!)?
That doesn't say much. It all depends on how steep the highpass filter is (or in other words how it was spec'd from the manufacturer/designer). With my Manley massive passive I cut below 39 KHz too, but that's a 18dB/oct filter which means that some signal will pass through, although attenuated.
There is hardly any useful information below 30 Hz even for heavy-bass music. You might get a 5% extra something in a club but in a car stereo? Your choice.
i´ve got a pair of focal solo 6s which i really like for their lowend...
in fact i like the lowend so much i tend to over do it
it´s not that i don´t hear that i´m mixing with a lot of lowend, it´s just that most speakers of that size really crap out at such amounts of lowend.
maybe i should get a sub and turn it up a little to much, to compensate for my taste for to much lowend...
on topic again: the bm5as suck at lowend response
and i think the bm6as aren´t that much better, didn´t like the smaller adams and genelec either, the only 6,5" in that price range i liked for their lowend were the focals... but if you really want them to go down low get 8" speakers!
Great boxes thumbsup Very fussy about positioning though, plus they demand a quality amp. Which gets a bit expensive..
I love my PMC's, but if EDM was all I did, I would perhaps consider something else, like a 2.1 system. The BlueSky range would be worth a look for sure.
