If this is a requirement for you, which speakers do you currently have with this feature? I know of no speakers that have this ability and don't know a lot of people using passive subs anyway (requiring amplification). There are lots of active sub options that would go well with these speakers (or any speakers for that matter).
i actively bi-amp, or tri-amp, and yes, i use passive subs that require outboard amplification. if the soundfields could be hi-passed at ~80hz, then i'd be ok. not sure how it works, w/its active powered woofer built-in.doug s.
The 8" subwoofer driver does (about) 20Hz-200Hz. The 5.25" Kef concentric drivers take over at 200Hz. Why would you want to high pass the monitors? They make very good bass, IMO. Whatever the case, you probably could get a custom setup. After all, AJ builds them to order, I believe.
my issue is i actively cross subs to my mains at ~60-80hz, (depending on mains), and there's no way i am gonna run any speakers w/o a true subwoofer set-up. aj could probably let folks like us know the best way to integrated subs w/his speakers. not sure i'd want to be running my subs up to 200hz if they were connected directly to the soundfields; that's another issue that would need to be worked out...not that i really need any more speakers, haha! but, these seem intriguing. doug s.
Hi Doug,These speakers are just like any passive, non-powered speaker, except you plug them into a wall . You simply connect your existing speaker wires (from your main amp) to the speaker input on the back. Adjust the (sub) level on the plate amp to match your main amp...and your done.That way, if you have your main amp hi-passed at 60hz, that's what the SAM1's will be fed. And your line level sub outputs are free...to feed as many subs as you need.I highly doubt you will bottom or overdrive the built in subs listening to music. They are designed to be run full ranged in small to medium sized rooms and provide healthy sound pressures..of course dependent on the amp driving them.HT is another story. Two 8" subs are not going to play back WOTW at reference levels in an auditorium...nor were they intended to do so.The subs are sealed, not vented, so it is entirely possible for the in room response to extend down into the mid 20's (as shown by the in (my) room response in the CapFest thread). YMMV.If you need HT ref levels in a large room, you'll just have to wait for the Model 2's or 3's cheers,AJ
aj, thanks for the clarification; it is as i suspected. one question about the possibility of future connecting passive subs directly to the sam1 - will they also be driven to 200hz, or is there a way w/the bash amp to cut their response, while the sam1 woofers still go to 200hz?thanks again,doug s.
doug, why wouldn't you just use the (I assume) outboard amps that you already have for your subs?
AJ, any chance of these making an appearance at RMAF?
Mine just arrived - gonna be a great weekend!Jeff
So AJ, your first customers appear to be... AUDIOPHILES!!! Good luck with your new venture, man.Neekomax, enjoy buddy. Can't wait to hear your impressions.
