Which one is bassier? MA-BX5 or MA-RX2 for my room and setup?
I have a pair of ma-bx5s run with my cd/pm6004 kit...I very much like the sound the system delivers but I expected a bit more deep bass and a tad more sound stage. My room is about 35 msq and there is 40 cm clearance to the back wall and almost no side walls. 2.5m space between two speakers and a radius of 4 m to the listening position. Also they're a bit toed-in.
I also feel a bit box colourations on bx5s at low to mid ferquencies(say about between 300 to 600 hz) this would probably go better after well enough running in...correct?
But my most concern is about the lack a bit of attack on very deep bass lines.
Since there are few better quality speakers the amp can drive, the only compatible I could find are probably the ma-rx2s.
So would it be better to switch from bx5s to rx2s. I think the bass from rx2s would be a bit more organized due to its larger driver, more simple 2 channel crossover, and lesser the box. Those rules would probably give me more natural sound comes from the drivers not the box. Am I right?
Or just stick with bx5s and give them a little more time?
