Love 'em to bits, I've had zero problems and they sound great. The speakers and amp all have proper sprung terminals and beefy cables, so you'd be hard pushed to fuck it up. Very cool for mixing/mastering, since you can disconnect the main speakers and just listen to how the sub reacts, compared some "pro" recording, or just turn the sub down to listen to the mids and highs.


That sounds pretty slick actually. I'm currently using these in my home recording set up:

Fostex PM0.4s

They sound really great for highs mids and low mids, but i think i need some sub-woofing action for sure...and the subs that fostex makes don't exactly easily integrate with these...I'll have to look those you got up and see if i can some on the bayz0rz.

Yeah, having a sub is definately very handy- it's easy to miss some rumbly-ass low end without them, then you put your mix on a big hi-fi and it's MRMRMRFHGHRRRRRR bassy.

Not to mention they were made by the company I work for.

This is cool shit, but I reckon the vocals are perhaps a little bit loud. I don't think it's as gaping as other people have described, but it'd be nice if there was more focus on the guitar, but that's my opinion, judging by the guitar tone it's meant to be that low in the mix. The panning later on is a nice effect.

Oh yeah, crank it up at the guitar solo.

This doesn't sound anything like the Blue Album.

There's probably some lying around in the warehouse somewhere. I need to get a Balaclava.

I actually found that really annoying. I'd say panning like 50% either side max to lessen then "awh fuck I'm dizzy" effect.

Its hard to tell on myspace, but I like the way its mixed. It reminds me of Butch Walker's songs/mixing sound. Alot of pop music has the vocals out front. Good Job. Definatley think the guitar tone has that def leppard/80's rock tone to them, sounds cool. Its nice to hear something different.

haha @ mike.

As much as I wish I wrote the blue album, I am trying to keep things my own this time around.

Thank you Cowbell. Butch Walker is a good person to be compared to.

I likes mien wanky panning.

I quite liked it, but, speaking as a bass player, bass definitely needs moved up in the mix. The track will sound loads fuller. I thought the loud vocals mix was refreshing, but yes, the vocals could use being turned down a bit.

+1000 on cranking it on the solo man!
