Size of Studio monitors changes my tone in Helix Posted May 13 On 5/12/2022 at 6:53 PM, codamedia said: Since I am somebody that never assumes anything.... I need to ask a really obvious question. Is the HF Trim set the same on both sets of monitors? I think it should also be noted that although they both use 1" dome tweeters, there is more power driving the tweeter on the 8" model. That doesn't always equate to "louder", but it will equate to "more headroom/cleaner" therefore there will always be a perceived increase in high end on the 8" model. If the 8's are not the "p" (new generation) then something else to consider is that you are not truly comparing the same series... the 305's will have improvements that the 308's don't have. Maybe, just maybe the high end is part of those changes? (I do not know the answer to this, I am posing the question) ^^^ this ^^^ is also very critical. Yes set the same. I have them both set up and pointing directly on my ears. I thought the 5s will have a better high end due to the 8s producing more low end? I think the 5s sound better at low volumes, is that because the driver smaller? I’ll double check what changes were made in the new gen.
