Genelec 8000 series 2way problem...!?

I have a genelec 8030 w sub 7050.
My problem is my mix and master is so good in genelec but same master in outside with other speaker is dull.
My control room is 70%standard
My sound card is lynx aurora
My sound science is 70% good
My experience is 10 years
.
So if i want to change it, what is your suggestions!?

I'm not sure I understand 70% standard or 70% good but... Could be your room, could be yours ears, could be the genelecs. Probably a combination of the three. Impossible to say. I'd start by making your room 100% (whatever that means).

But as an aside, if you always have to add, say a 3db shelf at 16k, why not just do that before you take the mix out of the room...?

How long you use this system? What did You use before and how was the translation with previous monitors?

(Sorry if I ask) Do you compare your mix during the mixing process with some well known similar tracks?

What is wrong with your finished tracks? (Dynamics, reverbs, RMS, low, mid high...) ?


Did you ever measure your room response with some mic and some software (REW EQ for example) ?

having just got a pair of 8040s with a Focal sub, so far I've had very good success with translation. Nothing is going to sound completely the same across different listening situations. I've only had them for a few weeks, but so far the 8040s have been successful. My room is nothing special, a 10x12 with reasonably good acoustic paneling. You may have this already, but the big difference for me was improving my room treatment. Made a world of difference.

If you have good acoustic treatment including panels and bass panels in your room, that should help the situation.
