About this deal

A musical journey that started at Chennai in 1979 touching millions of hearts and continuing to do so, even today. No indents below and above 0dB on volume adjustment, making it PITA to accurately adjust volume next to a wall. One of the questions I often see from beginners is how does a waveguide influence a monitor’s performance. The 38% rule says that in a rectangular room, on paper, the best listening position is 38% of the way into the room from the shortest wall.

The latest version of the popular LP-6 is still quite new but the positive reviews are already coming in. You can compare this to mixing drums; generally you’ll keep the kick centered while cymbals can have a greater stereo width. The LP-6 has enough output for most 1-2 person setups, and the LP-8 can handle larger setups easily.It’s a sweet spot between the sometimes overbearing nature of an 8-inch monitor and the often underwhelming low-end performance of a 5-inch.

At continuous reference-level output, the LP-Series monitors have at least 20 dB headroom at the listening position.This encompasses those listeners who sit within a typical home theater audience, as well as those who disregard the normal rules when listening alone. After directly testing them live against the AA T7V, KRK rokit 5/7, Yamaha H5S, JBL 306 and Edifier S2000MKIII. You can't go wrong with Tourtech gear, and their wide array of products means that they've got a solution for any gear problems that you might have.

The voice coil on the LP-6 allows the speaker to have very high excursion, resulting in clearer sound with lower harmonic distortion, and a high degree of detail. I dont have any of the audio abnormalities the OP is experiencing, on my setup bass is full and deep across the spectrum, highs are soft and not overbearing, and the mids are clear and cracking. When it comes to professional-grade monitor speakers and audio equipment, you can never go wrong with KALI AUDIO. Bass response is not boosted or overhyped, but you can be sure that you’re hearing the bass that you have on the track. Secondly,there isnt a hiss unless your ear is 3cm away from the monitors, and even there, its slightly noticeable.I was also looking at the AA T7V's to purchase and while they sounded good and their bass is impressive, they have a color to their tweeters (all cymbals, hi-hats, crash, and splash cymbals regardless of weight/size and all high frequencies seem to sound the same) that seem to be a characteristic of the ribbon tweeter and can't be EQ'd out, like the tweeters on the focal Alpha 50/65 lineup. Because high frequencies tend to be more directional and low frequencies tend to be more omni-directional, orienting your tweeters on the outside will widen the stereo image and keep the low end more centered. And thanks to the dip switches you have more ability to place the speakers where you need; whether free standing, near a wall or on a console. The sole purpose is to have a highly-functional monitor that is up to the rigors of dedicated studio work. The Near-Field-Scanner 3D (NFS) offers a fully automated acoustic measurement of direct sound radiated from the source under test.

Superb Sound in Any Setup - Our powered monitors feature an updated boundary EQ for high-quality audio output no matter where they're placed - on a stand, against a wall, or on your desk! Very balanced sound, no discernible resonances (it doesn't hurt they are front ported) and detailed lows and highs.

This gives you more accurate bass response that extends lower, so you can dial in exactly the low end sound you need. At the same time, we didn’t want noise from the front port to distract from the accuracy of the speaker, so we developed a special front port that doesn’t make noise. Protective limiters prevent harmful voltage from ever reaching the drivers, so there is no risk of blowing these speakers.
