  1. I really wish there were larger drivers using Focal's inverted tweeter technology. They sound amazing but at the same time do you think that type of technology would work in a larger diameter driver?
  2. However if you want "Hi-Fi" branded speakers and drivers you can go with Aurasound and Peerless.
  3. I've built with JL and they're really nice. You just have to watch out for "Competition" branded subs which have to be more durable. Focal are the best right now though. Focal also has some subs under $200 but I've never built with them before so I can't vouch for how good they sound.
  4. That is really odd. Maybe stay away from that sub for a while and go with a JL. Not sure what's up with that.
  5. Focal is always the best in drivers and tweeters. However Pioneer's Champion series TS-W3003D4 is the best 12inch under $200. However anything above that just go with Focal, Audiofrog, or JL Audio. Focal is preferable though. If you want to make a good 12inch or 10inch sub take a note from KRKs front firing port on the 12s and 10s. Very good design especially for home theater. Materials wood be MDF or Aluminum if you can get your hands on that. Hope this helps!

    Beats worth it?

    Definitely! Beats were never bad headphones. They were always sub par sound quality wise but for DJing they were/are the best. For $120 though go for it!
  7. Bluetooth is hard since it's an added feature that ups the price of a speaker set. Never get a bluetooth sub. The best bluetooth system I could find would be these.
  8. My friend has a Klipsch PC speaker set like this. It sounds quite nice and has some nice low end. I wouldn't call it "accurate" but it doesn't sound bad ad the bass isn't super muddy sounding as I find with most other products like this. If you wanted clear sound but no sub so they lack a little bass you could get these. Hope this helps!

    Setup Tips?

    If you like looks you could go for the edifiers. They're nice-ish but they don't sound amazing. You could also grab some KRKs since they're really great. Stay away from Yamaha unless you have extra money you don't mind spending. Though your setup looks beautiful. Cable management on point!
  10. i think i have 6000 gb vram if we put it that way. JK 3.990
  11. My bad sorry it's DDR3. And yeah its the highest configuration and the most powerful machine you can get for music production. When I bought it I configured it with both D700s and in hindsight I could probably get by with the D500s. However with Metal integrating with core audio drivers the GPUs do help when I tax the CPUs. However 6gb workstation cards aren't really needed for music production. However UE4 likes them.
  12. Mine makes sense for what I do. Except for the dual 6gb cards. Never come close to using them fully.

    Speakers

    My bad one last one that I forgot. The Edifier R1700BTs are $150 but I've loved my pair. I use them for hooking up my phone to play music and they have very nice sound. https://www.amazon.com/Edifier-R1700BT-Bluetooth-Bookshelf-Speakers/dp/B016PATXSI/ref=sr_1_3?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1465687361&sr=1-3&keywords=edifier Edifier also has this pair https://www.amazon.com/Edifier-R1280T-Powered-Bookshelf-Speakers/dp/B016P9HJIA/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1465687361&sr=1-1&keywords=edifier for $100 but since I do not own it I cannot vouch for its sound. I expect that it sounds fine though. The $150 Edifiers are the best out of the bunch in terms of sound quality but they do lack some low end response but its not that bad.

    Speakers

    You could get a Pair of Mackie CR3s which are really accurate but don't have any bass for $100. https://www.amazon.com/Mackie-CR3-Creative-Reference-Multimedia/dp/B00KVEIY4E/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1465687213&sr=1-1&keywords=cr3 If you want base then I'd go with these Logitech Speakers, https://www.amazon.com/dp/B003VAHYTG/ref=psdc_172471_t1_B0151K2AB0 I have a pair of both and they work fine. I miss the low-end when I game on the CR3s which is why I got the Logitechs and they're quite nice.
  15. Yeah KRKs are the best in their price range from five to 8 inch driver sizes. If you can afford it the HS8s are better but not by much. Presonus are ok but they're not horribly accurate. 8inch driver sizes don't get good until you venture into the realm of Exposes, Focal, or Dynaudio. If you don't have the money for those and have 5 inch monitors pick up a Yamaha or KRK studio sub until you can afford the higher end stuff. But for 5inch sizes the KRKs are the best I've used in that price range. I wouldn't go Eris 5s just because they cause more ear fatigue and their woofers tend to rot after a year or so. KRK and M-Audio have the best 5inch monitors. But M-Audios BX5 Carbons are awful. If you don't have a sub headphones work fine if you have a good pair.
