Looks like 1st gen M-audio BX5's to me. More interested in the Tannoy sub, never seen them make any good subs.

Am I the only one who dislikes single-sub audio setups. I've yet to hear a single sub that I liked. I've demoed $800 sub setups in store and I still disliked them. My ears hear the 2 speakers and then I hear the sub and the 3 sounds coming together sounds mismatched and fatiguing. I currently have 2 speakers with 8' speakers w/ tweeter and sounds superior to any 2.1 setup I've heard.

Depends on how it's setup ie: room placement, room treatments etc.

If setup properly you shouldn't be able to pinpoint where the sub is in the room. You also have to make sure that the sub frequencies pick up where the main speakers leave off. 

Easy to do with an AV receiver with a setup mic. Harder to do manually.

I hate single subs, but in a different way. 

 

Two subs and more, ideally you should have 4 to have the best frequency response in a room. Single sub can't just give you a flat response in a typical room without some serious eqing, and even then multiple subs are better.

 

But that was a different subject altogether. I'd say that a good 2.1 or 2.2 is often much better than 2.0 systems in typical conditions. In a good 2.1 setup you can't hear the sub, it just blends in to the sound, I think this is something you have yet to hear.

I can completely shake my room (16x14) with my 2.0 arrangement. I'm not the biggest bass head but @ 30% volume I get all the bass I need out of my 2.0 setup.

KRK Rokit 8. Those go pretty low though. But have you ever actually measured the frequency response in your room? Without KRK's Ergo they probably have some 10-20dB peaks here and there. Far from hi-fidelity.

 

I've tried using a pair of 8" hifi speakers for my computer before.

I did a couple of the audio test and I could hear 25hz, not sure how accurate it is but I feel they are on par with my beyer 990's in terms of sound sig and overall sound. And honestly I think anything under 20hz is a gimmick. The same can be said for anything over 25khz.

 

official specs on rokit's are 35hz to 35khz.

Way too cool.

What a fantastic juxtaposition between the old and the new. Very cool.
