I've been happily using my UX2 for years now, but I'd like to make some adjustments if possible. For recording and monitoring I use Yamaha HS5, which are ran from the analog outs on the back via xlr's. For casual listening I also use the monitors but also have a sub out from the headphone jack. The sub is part of a cheap 2.1 setup from bestbuy, I just disconnected the small L/R speakers and use the sub only. I record death metal, but frequently listen to rap and electronic and want to hear the low low frequencies. If I play music through WMP I can use the eq to dial the sub to get the sound I'm looking for but this is also applied to the monitors as well, which basically ruins the big picture. Is there a way to only dial the sub and leave the monitors alone? Any ideas are appreciated, thanks.
Ok - to paraphrase several on this forum, I think I'm in deep. I traded in my Presonus 16.4.2, Mackie 450v2's and Mackie 1801 sub on the M20d and 2 3Lt's - and I'm wondering about the sub. I often found the Mackie 1801 to be a bit, well, boomy - not tight, not well-integrated with the other speakers. It was OK, but not great, and I often didn't use it. It wasn't that expensive, so I didn't feel to badly about that. Also, in some of our outdoor church services - specifically the upcoming Easter Sunrise service, I'm not sure how helpful it was. We do it in a courtyard that's maybe 50' wide, 120' long, with brick walls on each side and back, concrete floor, and open sky on top. The one year I tried the Mackie sub it seemed to make things kind of muddy. I'm gathering the L3s will integrate well with the whole ecosystem. The kind of music we play on it is more contemporary Christian, with me on acoustic guitar, a keyboard, bass guitar, 3 vocalists and now a drum set. We get a little rowdy sometimes, and as I introduce my JT69 later this year, maybe a bit more so. I also use the system for off-site weddings and will use it for classical music, keyboards, and so on, as well as occasionally for dance music/DJ sorts of things. Trying to decide... Larry
