I´m in the market for a new pair of speakers. A stereo system for mixing pop music in a small/medium room.
I´ve been using Mackie HR824 for the last 5 years and I´ve been quite happy with them. I´ve been working on ADAM S3A systems in different studios as well, unfortunately I found that my mixes did not translate well to the Mackies, especially the top-end allways gets a little quiet when I mix on the S3A, as well as the low end that appears to be a bit less accurate on the ADAMs.
I dunno, I thought about getting a pair of S2A to finally get used to the ADAM stuff, but it keeps bugging me that I sort of can´t tell if the top-end is just right on the ADAM systems.
I also thought about BM6A and maybe a BM10Sub to complement the system, but the BM10S seems to have only one input, so you have to split your stereo signal and mix it down to mono BEFORE the sub, if you want to get away with a single sub...
Sure, the BM15A might be nice, but I would welcome the smaller footprint of the BM6A and the S2A. Also I would welcome to be able to take the speakers to other studios when I´m working there, the Mackies were a bit too heavy for that.
I recently came across a Genelec 8040 and those were quite impressive, as well. Especially when I compared them to 1031A, even though the 1031A have a bigger woofer, the 8040 sounded more accurate to me.
Anybody has an idea about that? Especially about the subwoofer setup. Could I get away with only one sub? How do you connect the sub??
