My wife moved some crap out of the music studio giving me more room to play. I poke around a little at Ableton Live, & Audacity, but mostly I program drum and bass tracks on my Alesis SR-18 & push that noise thru a low end but fun & functional phonic 410 amp & Seismic Audio 8" 2 way speakers. Speakers are bolted to the wall, and when I drive them hard enough to hear the bass & kick THE ENTIRE HOUSE VIBRATES & PAINTINGS ON THE WALL RATTLE (that's the wife yelling, not me). When I was shopping around, my first priority was a plug and play subwoofer. The Yamaha EMX2 makes it easy with a dedicated Subwoofer out jack, which when in use cuts the low frequencies to L/R output & sends them to a powered subwoofer. The Yamaha arrived today, and hooked up to the Seismic Audio is already a nice improvement. The Seismic Audio speakers are within the realm of decent for what they are imho. My room is small (it's a bedroom!), so this is extreme overkill (which I love!). This system should allow me to play small venues when the pandemic concludes. I'll post pictures when everything is set up. On a side note, I was lucky enough to find mint demo floor models on everything & saved a boat load. The speakers are coming from djnow on Reverb about $100 off per speaker, I lowballed the seller of the minty mixer & he jumped on it, saving about $150, & the sub is an open box coming from GC at about $175 off the normal. I haven't mentioned to my wife how much I saved... She really doesn't care and is happy for me (I think).
