 Hi,

 I have recently encountered extra boom from my Dynaudio DM 2/7 speakers having just upgraded my amp.. Bass drum and other drums have lost that kick of air for example, which is necessary to replicate their sound correctly.  

 Does anybody know if this will work?

 Thank you very much.

 

Have you tried experimenting with speaker positioning? If that doesn't work...

People on here have questioned for years my selection of kit. But it sounds like the Brio-R is struggling with the slightly difficult Dyns. As I've always said, design a kit around your room size and acoustics and not vice-versa.

Made a very noticable difference, well worth the money IME.

hoops - whats the cushion/white bag for behind the speaker stand?

The Cushion lifts the foam bass traps up off the floor so they sit flush in the corner, lifting them up over the skirting board/heating conduit.

 PP, it's def not the brio-r struggling. In the shop demo, i was really struggling to make a decision because i thought the rega was actually lacking bass. same speakers. they were just further from the walls , and a much bigger room. The rega has no problems driving Dynd, the sound, (apart from boom in corner when foam plug not used) is outstanding.

RE: Damping boomy bass

my thanks to everyone who has contiributed advice.Those foam corners look ideal, as do the pack of 24 tiles also on amazon. I definitely can't move my speakers any more than they are. I dont have room for stands because i also have a bike in my room. I don't want to down size to the dm 2/6 as i have also heard these and i just prefer the overall sound from the 2/7's. I might consider listening to the x12's though if nothing else works. I have one egg box in the kitchen, i could be on an omelette diet for a couple of weeks.

If they're not on stands what are they on?

RE: Damping boomy bass

Perhaps you could knock up some small isolating stamds for the speakers to sit on....granite choping boards for instance?

I suppose they're only a few inches from the wall?

Dyns, more than most small speakers, need plenty of space behind them - that's why I've never considered them. I think you could use all the egg boxes and acoustic panels and I'd wager it would make little or no difference.
