Sounds like you need to introduce a crossover and get a decibel meter. They are pretty cheap and will let you figure out when your speakers bass starts to fall off, and adjust crossover and sub volume accordingly.

He400s are definitely not ruler flat.

Built in amps tend to work very well with bass response in active speakers.

Q100s definitely don't have bloated bass and by the sound of it much less than your current speakers. It probably has a nicer texture. It's lighter but better quality. Don't think it's what you're looking for.

Agree with post above as well.

You're just better going active than passive with monitors considering your budget.

Active designs are going to be specially designed so the amp matches the woofer(s) and tweeter(s) in the cabinet. Crossover points are already built into active monitors and were picked specifically by the people who made the active speaker...

Going passive, you could have a $2000 passive monitor, but pair it with a terrible amp and awful crossover settings and it's still going to sound ****ty.

My Mackie MR5MKiis have excellent bass response. I can hear all the way down to around ~38-40hz. Of course it's not a completely flat response that low down, but for 5.25" woofers it's pretty amazing. Compared to the 5.25" Alpine Type R's in my vehicle, the Mackies blow them away in mid bass and response. Obviously being in an enclosure greatly helps.

For the rest of the frequency range im missing, my 8" Sundown Audio E8v3 in a custom aero ported enclosure provides way more than enough bass for my studio (it's crossed @ 80hz). But It's not necessary to always have it on. Yes, songs sound "fuller" with the sub on (regardless of genre), but i can still greatlyenjoy music that isn't incredibly bass heavy without it.

Well I already have a $300 amplifier for passive speakers, I don't really feel like selling it with a huge loss now. The HE-400's are about as flat as I could probably get short of an LCD-2, and I really don't feel like spending a fortune. I'm pretty satisfied with the equipment I have now, I just want a small upgrade to my speakers because I've been preferring my headphone setup to my much more expensive stereo tongue.gif. I do think that active speakers would be a good idea because I suck at setting up the crossover as you stated, but what would I do with all of my equipment... LOL wink.gif. Anyway I turned up the crossover on my subwoofer and it's better now. I set it at 100 Hz because these are 5 1/2 inch driver speakers. I'm OCD about the bass not interferring with the mids and I guess I went overboard. I would still like to experience some new better speakers though, but I'm not really sure where to go from here.

Edit: I could move my current setup into my living room for movies and what-not. But I seriously doubt a ~$500 active systems will beat my $600 Paradigm Mini Monitors, $200 Energy ESW-C8 subwoofer, and $300 Emotiva UPA-200 amplifier. I'm looking at the Emotiva Airmotiv 5 Powered Speakers though, they look like they might be okay... whether it will beat my current setup I have no idea.

IMO, your Mini's are just fine. You need to fix your subwoofer. It's not set correctly.

 

For instance, mine is set correctly and I can almost barely distinguish the bass the subwoofer puts out from the speakers themselves because of how well the sound flows through my room. Some tones are obviously the subwoofer, especially 20hz, but 40-60hz that the subwoofer is taking care of instead of the speakers, blend seemlessly and almost sound like they're coming from the speakers themselves.

Thanks for the help guys. I'll grab a volume meter off of someone I know and get it set up properly. I'll also look up some guides about properly setting up the crossover at the same time.

Looking for some help. I got a surround sound system I need help appraising. Moving in with my girl and i have to get rid of it unfortunately 😭 I know I'm so sad. It's two welton pro studio 50" towers with 2x12" subs. Have also 3 12" bookshelf speakers. The system has a 5 disc dvd changer and 5.1 surround sound receiver, all Sony. Pictures are included. Any help getting this appraised would be great as I am not sure what to charge for a system like this. Thanks for any help.

Great speakers !
Got a pair myself to, the highs even though crystal clear might sound harsh at first but after a few hours they sound perfect IMO.

How are you going to hook them up ?

Sorry to say, but nothing out of all that is really worth much value. The towers are super low grade PA speakers. Same applies to the "bookshelf" speakers.That brand seems to me like a "white van scam" brand and I could find almost nothing besides a rent-a-center link to a Welton Technical Pro 2500 watt rack system, but that itself looks like total bull. Quality is definitely on the bad side.

DVD player and receiver are also pretty worthless, especially the DVD player. The receiver isn't even capable of 1080p through HDMI, only 1080i, and because of the low bandwidth it also doesn't pass audio thru HDMI... which seems absolutely silly to me. It's definitely dated so it isn't going to be worth much, brand not helping.
