So the foobar controller is fubar?

Speaker response can vary greatly depending on the size, shape, and surface acoustics of the room in which they're used, as well as how they're placed within that environment. The HS50M and HS80M give you extra room-matching and speaker placement versatility with ROOM CONTROL, MID EQ, and HIGH TRIM response control switches that are specifically designed to compensate for common acoustic deficiencies and monitoring needs. The ROOM CONTROL switch, for example, can be used to compensate for the unnatural low-end exaggeration that usually occurs when speakers are placed close to walls or in corners. The MID EQ switch gives you subtle midrange boost and cut options in addition to flat response, while the HIGH TRIM switch offer the same type of response-tailoring capability for the high frequencies.

G-rig wrote:How do you find the bass on the HS80M Marcus? I think it's enough but just. The matching sub would be nice but noticed it only goes down to 30Hz (the monitors go down to 42Hz). I thought subs usually go to 20Hz or so, so i'm not sure it would be worth getting as well as finding somewhere to put it.

All default so far, thought about fiddling with the settings but I'm pretty happy the way they are.

So if you want to listen to really bassy music, or at louder levels, a sub's a good idea.
As your speakers get closer to the walls
you might find that setting the ROOM CONTROL switch
to the “-2” or “-4” setting gives you more natural response
in the bass range. As a reference, remember that you’re
trying to approach the way the speakers sound when
they’re located more than 1.5 meters (5 feet) away from
the nearest walls.
