I have owned a bass heavy pair of K1000s for a while now and have been completely happy with them. Unfortunately the right driver picked up a distortion on deep bass notes so i sent them to Germany to have them fixed. I bought 2 new drivers to keep them balanced and I'm glad i did because there is a night and day difference between the old and new drivers in my opinion, one of each would have been a nightmare.
My drivers are very green (15hrs max) but i don't expect them to change much now. The good news is the highs and vocals are beautiful, better than i remember. The bad news is the bottom seems to have disappeared. This seems to go along with what other Headfiers have experienced with New Vs Old K1000 drivers so its not a complete suprise.
I've been reading up today about integrating a sub woofer into my system and i think this could really work for me if i get it right. That would give me the best of both worlds. The beautiful highs of the new driver and the solid lower end of a dedicated sub.
I am using a Unison Unico Integrated Amplifier. It has 2 rows of speaker outs (i use the top four with my K1000s)
Ideally i would like to filter the sound so below a certain value (ie < 80hz) gets directed to the Sub, and everything else goes to the K1000s
Is this possible? I understand the Unico will send the same signal to both the K1000s and the Sub so im worried the K1000 will muddy the lower end stuff.
I guess im saying i dont understand how to send the <80Hz to sub & >80 to K1000's
I have a Melos Sha Gold floating around, is that going to add any benefit to the system as a preamp?
I've read all the posts including the following but it doesn't seem to answer the question
Sorry the question is abit scatty, hopefully someone can help.
Thanks for reading
