Cheap bass control.

Is is possible?

For us home studio folks, money is always tight.

But we NEED to be able to work with low end properly. We need some way to get that sh*t under control.

We just can’t keep chasing our low end tails endlessly (literally!) on every mix, when we’ve got clients to serve, families to feed, and friends to impress.

But throwing a ton of money at the problem is usually out of the question.

So then all options considered, what is the cheapest solution out there that still works?

There’s GOT to be something out there that doesn’t break the bank and is “good enough”!


Let’s do it.

Let’s compare all our options, considering all important factors for a home studio (price, effectiveness, use of space, etc) to see who comes out on top and why exactly.



"How to correctly place your listening position and speakers, no matter what room you're in."

  • Optimize the low end and minimize reflection effects
  • Get the distance between wall and speakers right
  • Get a stereo image like on really good headphones
