Knowledge Bomb #1: Subwoofers, Measurement Mics, Room Correction and more!

youtube comments q&a

I wanted to give some love back to all of you who have been commenting my YouTube videos and getting… crickets.

Truth is: YouTube comments are just one of the many things that got cut when prioritizing to move this ship forwards.

BUT I do read them and appreciate anyone who takes the time!

So I thought it would be fun to give back a little and do a lightning round Q&A session answering your questions.

In this first of potentially many YouTube Comments Knowledge Bombs, let's talk about:

  • Speaker Size: 8 inch vs 5 inch woofer in a small room?
  • Listening Position: Finding the low end sweet spot
  • One vs Two Subwoofers: Theory vs Practice
  • Panel Placement: Air gap vs filling the whole corner
  • Room Size: Is 2m x 4m x 2.5m too small?
  • Listener Position: The 38% "rule"
  • Measurements: What microphone do I use?
  • Speaker calibration (room correction) software: Benefits & compromises
  • Speaker Placement: Does SBIR (Speaker Boundary Interference) matter in practice?



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

  • Find the correct wall to face in your home studio
  • 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
