If you take a look at the specs of those two speakers, you would see a FR of +/- 1.5 db 37-20khz on the Mackie's compared to +/- 6 db 30-24khz for the Wharfedale's.
How much more bass do you think you are going to get from some budget Wharfedale's and a 20 WPC amp from 1986 compared to current generation Mackie studio monitors at 250 WPC?
Ups, My Bad, it is per speaker , You are right !
Read a bit about Diamonds: DIAMOND 9.5
MACKIE is simple not a Audiophile speaker ... You cant get bass from 8" woofer packed in small cabinet .. YOU CANT ...
By the way, i work some time in sound production studio, and i head some active studio monitors ... MONITORS ARE FOR STUDIO NOT FOR HOUSE - NOPE ...
OK, i am out for real, this thread lost the point ..
