Have spent the past few days reading the DJ forums. What I'm specifically looking for is to have that clear spacial accurate sound dj monitor system that I can turn up quite a bit for when I have home parties. The clubs that I goto all have Funktion One systems, and I would like to some how get that same chest thumping clean transient response with a bottom end that MOVES you. In particular, I want to hear the sound of the mallet as it hits the the drum. I have my poor mans rotary mixer, Vestax PMC-25. I might be able to get a good deal for some old Turbosound TMS-1 3 way speakers with their own crossovers. I'm formally a carpenter, so I would not have any problem building my own subs.
Now I don't necessarily have to use turbo/Funk1 equipment, I just want that type of sound. I would also appreciate amplifier suggestions. My total budget is about $1000 for mids/highs, $1000 for amplification, and $250 for a sub woofer, since the TMS-1 has a mid woofer that plays down to 90 hertz.
your help is all greatly appreciated.
