"Damn, this room has some serious low end issues!“
The bass is all over the place. Total suck out over here, massive resonance over there.
"We need some PROPER bass absorption in here and even that out!“
As it turns out, that’s not exactly what happens.
If you expect your low end to sound the same everywhere, if you just put enough low end treatment in your room, then you’ll be thoroughly disappointed.
There are two very simple reasons why this will never be the case, even in the most high-end, top-notch, treated studios.
It also means that "testing“ your room for bass problems just by walking around, listening to music and checking how the bass changes, doesn’t actually reveal very much.
UNLESS you make sure to take those two effects out of the equation first.
Are you getting enough low end extension from your speakers?
Or do they start to drop off where things get interesting, and you’re wondering if it’s worth upgrading to something bigger.
So you can really feel that punch in the chest and the bass in your gut.
Usually you have two choices:
Get bigger speakers.
Or add a sub.
But which way should you go?
Is there a certain benefit to going with either one or the other? How do you make sure it’s a good investment and that works in your particular room?
Have you ever looked at the frequency response of your room and thought:
Is this really what my room sounds like?
Is it really THAT bad?
It’s so easy to get worried that there might be a serious problem that you don’t know anything about.
How is there any way to trust what you’re hearing if this is what your speakers sound like!
So in this video I want to go through a few examples of what a typical frequency response looks like in a small, untreated room.
I'll show you what you need to be aware of to understand what you’re looking at, the two main things to watch out for, and what to ignore.
And I want to give you a simple trick you can use to figure out what it is you are actually hearing.
