KRK 10s Subwoofer

I added the KRK 10s subwoofer to the studio. I heard of people being happy with this subwoofer paired with the Adam A7 monitors. They go well together. It didn’t take me very long to get the two in line with each other.

I shot the room after a rough ear test. Here are the results using a 20-20k sine wave (I bypassed the console and went straight out the reference interface to the monitors).

Blue line: The Adam A7s / Red Line: The Adam A7s and the KRK 10s

Overall, I’m pretty pleased. The KRK 10s rounded out the low end without being too woofy or hollow sounding. With a little playing I can even things out a little.

The KRK 10s comes with an on/off switch port. The subwoofer doesn’t come with a switch but it takes any common 1/4 inch phono plug footswitch you’d use for a guitar amp (or something like it). I had one sitting around in a box and hooked it up. It’s handy to be able to switch the sub on and off from the console.
