adam p22a low end

I just got a pair of Adam P22a for testing.
I like the midrange and the top end a lot but i´m missing
the low end.
Is it just me and my room or did you guys make a simmilar experience?

I've been using the P22's for a year or so, and I really like them.

The only thing I have noticed is a slight dip around 270Hz, but again this could just be the room.

Just got an Adam Sub10 a couple of days ago to complement the monitors, and it hasn't hade a big difference.

im using P22A for couple of yrs.. noticed slight lack in bass in mix position, but it was good in other parts of the room... so i put some absorbers on RFZones.. and bass improved.

however, i feel P22 has slight dip or nonlinearity at the crossover point, btwn hi and lo drivers. like most 2-way speakers i guess..

so , im getting Fostex 6301 or powered Avatones (if they ever stop being vaporware), to complement the ADAMs. so i can dbl check how the mix sounds on crap/sml listening as well, but also to help me level the ever-important midrange more accurately (no crossover).

I've owned my P22a's for about 4 years now. I've measured their freq response in a LARGE room and they are exceptionally flat across the entire spectrum. Last year I did purchase the Sub10 to fill out 80hz and below and I think it's a perfect mate. The sub has made it a lot easier to EQ kick and bass, but I don't feel I absolutely needed it to create great mixes.
