Im not much of a speaker person (though I'd love to learn about them more one day) but i do enjoy car audio a lot. One time in a car i actually felt the bass through my lungs, strange but certainly an awesome feeling. 


lol, indeed.

 

I'm used to speakers and to feel the bass. You should get a nice pair of speakers, its objectively a much more fun and impressive and mind blowing experience if you have a high quality speaker and system overall.

From JBL? *Scoff*

 

No, I kid - I've seen the JBL Vertec system do some pretty amazing things.

 

 

But of course, that's a line array system, not a point source. 

 

I'm more of a D&B Audiotechnik fanboy myself. Subs like there's no tomorrow. Stacks that blow bass so hard you can literally hear it from miles and miles away.

 

Also, re-coning yourself is a tempting proposition, but be careful - if you don't get it done professionally, it's likely to blow out on you during a gig, which can lead to many tears.

 

There is plenty of re-coning places in Melbourne (I forgot where you are located) and some are dodgy as hell.

 

I had a mate who was so sick of his NEXO PS15 recone jobs blowing out, that he ended up striking a deal with NEXO in France to get it done. They even paid the freight! 

 

err uhh.. Anyway, HEADPHONES:

 

My Fiio E18 comes in today. Should be interesting to play with - I wonder if the bass boost is similar to the E12?

I do have a Logitech Pure-Fi 2 speaker. Nothing too special, but it gets the job done. I've been having a lot of problems with it lately like random shut downs. What I noticed though is that it doesn't reach very low in the subbass. The bass rolls off really early. Is that a problem with most speakers or is just with low-fi, budget ones?

Do you know a bassy set of speakers you recommend me checking out? Don't need something too expensive though.

Wow. Harman owns AKG, JBL, Harman/Kardon, Infinity, Lexicon, and Mark Levinson... What a rich audio company... That's crazy. Surprised Dr. Dre hasn't decided to do any major corporate takeovers yet. I hope he doesn't buy any companies that i actually like. He'd just take their good headphones, slap his name on everything, then charge 300$ more for ***** and giggles.

Well, at least they know what they're doing (for the most part; I mean, just look at AKG). I'm willing to bet Dre doesn't even know what the hell is going on in his own R&D department. It is just his name slapped on them, after all; I don't know if he has any idea about how the system works.

Fewer parent companies own more subsidiaries than you think. Just look at Samsung for a typical example. What are they famous for? Consumer electronics. What else do they do? Ship-building; construction work; insurance; amusement (they own a theme park); aerospace, surveillance and defense; and advertising for third-parties. The world is a small place :D

Find a pair of Cerwin Vega's. Very good bass...........here's my pair. Not well respected by "audiophiles" but I think they sound great.

Yes, that's the most important thing. Your opinion is the only opinion that should really matter to you after all ;)

hi

I'm a diy guy and have a couple of big speakers with 12 inch or 15 inch, there nothing that can replace big speakers=big displacement= move more air= better bass.

 

If you dont want to go the diy route, which I think is the best bang for the buck if you go with a kit by a known designer, you should look at vintage speakers.

For 500$-700$, you can buy a good vintage vandersteen speaker or a KEF.

 

Look at audiokarma for the best deals for vintage speakers

 

or if you want to go the diy route, which I recommend since you can have a speaker that you would have to pay 2 to 5 k commercially for 300 to 800$.

 

Right now, in the diy community, the satori monitor made by jeff bagby called the Kairos would be my choice http://meniscusaudio.com/kairos-pair-p-1380.html. you could also get the joachim gerhard design, made with the satori drivers,. Joachim has a speaker company that sells speaker for 10 to 20k sometimes and he offers a kit for 800$.

http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/vendors-bazaar/220330-sb-acoustics-satori-monitor-74.html

 

you can find a dynaco A 25 vintage speaker for 150$ everywhere in america, this is a decent entry speaker that offers good bass and good midrange.

 

diyaudio and audiokarma and partsexpress forum is your friend and can really help to get a idea on the hifi world.

 

The speaker world is much more diverse and expensive and crazy then headphones. the room is also super important with a speaker system. My room is completely isolated with 14 inch bass traps from floor to ceiling, treatment at the reflection point ect. but the result is worth it!

My dual 18" subs in my home theater agree with you. A headphone will never rumble your body in such a way.

 

You should check out diysoundgroup.com. Jeff has a few kits on there too, from 8" to 15" speakers.

ZMF VIBRO

so look I still wouldnt call this a bass head phone and I just have a prototype. 

 

For bass heads who like ortho bass like an lcd2, he400, or even the MD. I will say that this one easily has more bass than the MD PRO and 3.2 and ZMF v.2 yet its mids are REALLY full and rich. The kick drum smacks harder than the MD Pro for sure and you feel the bass more but its not slow.
