Subwoofer With Music
Recently, I received the repaired amp for my sub from Velodyne. The sub is the Velodyne HGS-18. I was without the sub for about two weeks as it got held up in Memphis, Tennessee due to the snow. At any rate, during this two weeks period, I listened to both music and movie without the sub by making my main speakers large. I have come the the realization that for music, I need to always listen to it with the mains set to large and without the sub whether I listen in 2 channels or 7.1 channels. The bass frequencies simply sound tighter and more defined and articulated without the sub, and the speakers themselves, image better. Movies sounded better too, but I could tell that on some movies, the sub sonic bass frequencies were absent. So, for movies, I have decided that I am a victim of room modes or room nodes, whichever is the correct term for standing waves and resonances. My walls are white, and my question is, does anyone know where I can get some white bass traps for a reasonable price? I looked on Amazon, but those bass traps looked like the ones you see in radio stations which would kill my decor.
