TOPIC: Does Minidsp allow for larger speakers?

Does Minidsp allow for larger speakers? 2 weeks 11 hours ago #49571

My setup requires the speakers to be close to a wall. As I have tried out a few new speakers I have found this results in boomy bass and a muddy overall sound. The bigger the speaker/drivers, the boomier the bass. Since Minidsp (REW and Dirac) help correct this, does this mean I can feel free to go for a bigger speaker/driver knowing that the minidsp can cleap up the boominess?

The reason I ask is because I have found smaller speakers or bookshelf speakers to sound clearer and have more even bass, but they ultimately still felt small and didn't give the room-filling sound i'm looking for.

Yes, a miniDSP and REW or Dirac Live will allow you to control boominess caused by speakers close to boundaries. This doesn't mean that having speakers in this position will be optimal though, both for bass and the rest of the frequency range.

Another option for a full-range sound is to use a subwoofer in combination with smaller speakers, still using a miniDSP.
