Studio Monitors

There are many different types of studio monitors, but in the end it is always the sound and the features that count. What is important here is a linear frequency response without natural boosts/cuts in the bass/midrange/treble range, impulse fidelity - i.e. the level of detail when listening - and a wide dispersion pattern. One should be clear about the connection options in terms of compatibility with other studio equipment, otherwise quick decisions will lead to frustration and duplicate purchases. In addition, depending on the model, manufacturers offer features such as built-in equalisers for sound correction.


A subwoofer serves to extend the frequency response in the bass range. However, before you reach for your wallet, you should be aware of the room conditions, among other things. Rooms in which no precautions have been taken against unwanted sound reflections tend to amplify bass frequencies extremely.

Note: When identical or very similar frequencies overlap, frequencies can be perceived louder or softer depending on their phase (time-delayed or "on top of each other"). Even complete cancellations are possible! The frequency response should also be compared with that of the sub: there is no point in buying an expensive woofer that may only deliver another 10Hz.
