  1. Okay. Might know why. Will be fixed by the end of the day.
  2. Hey guys! Today I'm going to give my two cents on speakers I have purchased. Product: JBL LSR305 Studio Monitors ( x2) Disclaimer: If you do want to purchase these, be aware that each speaker is sold individually. General Specifications: Why did I buy these over other products? My Corsair SP2500 malfunctioned a week into use. The subwoofer was completely blown and RMAing with Corsair was a pain. They didn't have any in stock and everywhere I searched, they were discontinued. I returned those and stumbled upon the JBLs on Amazon. I knew about JBL only in the automotive industry. They had a high reputation so I'd figure they'd probably have the same high rep in studio speakers. After two whole weeks of burning in these speakers, I have to say this was the best investment in audio equipment. ( For now) Also I wanted something that was a reference monitor. Something that was able to reproduce sound extremely accurately. Physical Appearance: These speakers are huge and requires a lot of space. Unfortunately for me I have a small desk and very limited surface area. I had to purchase stands and let them stand by themselves. They are not touching the table. Here is the speaker next to my Deathadder. (To give a reference of how big the speaker is.) There is no grill or any cover for these speaker. Gotta be careful and not make them dirty or break. (Exposed Woofer) Between the two speakers, there is a white LED light to notify user that the speaker is powered on. On the tweeter, there is a feature called "waveguide". This allows the sound waves to travel in the most efficient way to the user's ears. This also allows the person to hear it accurately from whatever position in the room. Waveguide is also seen in their M2 flagship monitor and on the larger LSR308. (with larger 8" woofers) On the back of the speaker, we see where we can place our inputs, XLR and TRS Balanced. The speaker allows for adjustment in LF and HF ( bass & treble ) with -2dB ,0 ,or + 2dB. I personally leave my LF on +2dB and HF on 0. My highs sound great and I need a little but of extra bass. A volume control knob with 20 way adjustability ( increment of 0.5 ) . Input sensitivity adjustment to prevent damaging speakers and adjusting to user input. Back firing port... Finally power cord & switch. What comes in the box? Speaker itself, & power cord. Input cables are not included probably because JBL assumes people buying these already have them. These cables are pretty cheap so I didn't mind paying the $10 bucks. Packaging was simple. Easy setup right off the box. How do they sound? ( Not from an audiophile's perspective but from a person who listens to a lot of music) My listening experience has been inside a bedroom setting. The environment is not that big compared to what they are meant to be in... A studio. First thing I noticed was that the LSR305 was loud. Party / wild banger loud. At max volume these were uncomfortably loud. What I noticed when I tried max volume was that the music still sounded great. No distortion. Without a subwoofer, I was amazed that there was some bass with the speakers. It's not right in your face but very subtle. It felt weird for the first time having the bass felt on my chest. (I was more used to having the sub on the floor so none of the bass was on my chest) However if I really want more bass, I would add their subwoofer down the line. There is no replacement for a sub. Vocals on these are amazing. Voices are crystal clear. Nothing else to say. Instruments. OMG! You can hear almost everything. Going from gaming speakers to these reference monitors, I heard stuff that I missed. Revisiting music from my playlist felt like listening to something extremely different. (dont know how to explain this phenomenon) . These obviously sounded quite flat. They're suppose to be. Made for mixers and musicians who need to accurately hear how the instruments sound. source: noaudiophile.com who measured the frequency response. Testing methodology: The speakers are placed 2.5ft away from each other and positioned to fire towards my ears rather than having them point forward. I assumed normal desk sitting position. I am about 1.5ft away from each speakers. Speakers were connected to my Asus Xonar Essence STX II's left and right RCA connections. There was no XLR or TRS for me to connect to. Sources vary from Spotify Premium, Apple Music, & Tidal. Songs used for test: 1. Eagles - Hotel California 2. Louis The Child - Slow Down Love 3. Calvin Harris - Slide 4. Hippie Sabotage - Sunny 5. Aero Chord - Love & Hate 6. Sam Gellaitry - ESCAPISM I II III Albums. Viable applications for these speakers... 1. Desk 2. Bookshelves 3. Living room theatre 4. Obviously in a studio. Pricing: At under $150 for each speaker, these are amazing. In my opinion this offering is way better than AudioEngine's A5+. These are true reference monitors whereas those are marketed to be similar to reference. The only problem I have with the LSR305 is that they are not bundled together in a package. However Amazon does offer a combo package for people without any equipment. These were priced just at under $100 at Massdrop. Do not know if they will ever comeback on that site. Conclusion These would def be my go to for anyone. These are reasonably priced and sound amazing. IMO this is JBL's attempt to give people a first hand grasp of what great speakers can do for you at a very very nice price. I def like how these are individually sold. If one of the speaker is faulty, you could simply replace one without having to completely replace the entire setup. The product's downfall is that you can't really "plug into the computer"... Don't know how to fully explain this either. In the long run, I'd for sure add their subwoofer to this setup. I'm pretty satisfied with what they offered. Now time for me to return to AFK status...
  3. Once they ship, I'll find out. I should follow up with my experience with them...
  4. Recently took a look at some JBL LSR305s. From reviews, I heard these things sound amazing. Hard to agree with many reviewers because I can't really get to experience the speakers before purchasing. A lot of people had to mess with placing around with positioning for maximum listening experience. Kinda a huge factor for me since I'm confined to a very small bedroom. I might want to get a pair. (THEY'RE NOT SOLD IN PAIRS. HOWEVER AMAZON AS FAR AS IM AWARE IS THE ONLY ONE THAT CAN PAIR YOU THESE). For the size of the speakers I don't mind them. They don't intrude or invade my current setup. (Measured my desk to check for size compatibility) Anyone had past experience with TSR / TS / XLR cables? Thinking of buying TSR to RCA cables because my Xonar Essence has RCA out. The other outputs are for my headphones. I've never dealt with any of these connections which is why I am a little hesitant to immediately purchase them. Rear vs front ported monitors? Thoughts on using an AMP+DAC card on top of speakers that are already amped? Pages I've been on while researching these speakers. http://noaudiophile.com/JBL_LSR305/ --> this person's review seems somewhat neutral imo. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qOySstGCMRg --> Z review. Pretty big audiophile. Hated him at first cause he bashed on the M50X but his reviews are on point. Tells me everything about the speakers. Guy tends to buy everything because of how great something sounds.
  5. That's what I've kinda been thinking. Finding a 8" sub is going to be kind of annoying cause the stuff I am normally finding are for car audio or has way too high power output. DIYing my sub shouldn't cost too much I hope...
  6. The midrange and tweeters work perfectly. Nothing is coming out of the woofer.
  7. My roommate have those. Heard from it, maybe. Those are THX certified no? Subwoofer will no longer produce any bass. The sub is suppose to move up and down to produce this bass. However because it is "blown" it could not do so. Could be the coil. I haven't opened the box to figure out the exact cause because I do not want to void my warranty.
  8. Any stereo system that produces decent bass without the need of sub? Heard the A2+ are pretty reputable.
  9. Have anyone dealt with Corsair's SP2500. These speakers sound amazing for the money, however the cables are proprietary... Not standard compared to other speakers. Recently, I blew the subwoofer, barely burned in. Don't know how, I have not increase the volume or the sub up. Been listening in moderate volume level. Anyone with some experience with this speaker? How did you guys fix the subwoofer? Thinking of buying a 8" sub with similar spec and replace the blown one. I've contacted Corsair, but the problem is that because this is an old product there aren't many available. They want me to ship the entire system back without the guarantee that I will get a new one back. A little bit too early to think about upgrading, but what are people's take on the A5+ and the addition of a subwoofer? From what I heard, it doesn't make much sense. But others are saying adding a sub makes a great difference.
  10. Yeah my program does {4.1.1} rather than {3.3}... Then again my code isn't suppose to give the optimal solution. I did this which sort of is what you were talking about.
  11. Only asked about how I would calculate how many 20 10 5 1 quarter etc required to give back to the customers. The other parts I understand. As far as arrays. Arrays are not required.
  12. Oh I see. So division is the solution. If the number is divisible to a number, then that is how many bills of that value is taken out from the cashier. Then the remainder is then taken to calculate how much of the smaller bill or coin is needed. I see. This makes total cents.... badumptss Thanks though.
