Bass Maximizers
« on: July 03, 2011, 01:11:41 pm »

How many people use bass maximizers?  I went to a reggae concert a few weeks back and the bass was intense.  They had a bunch of Yorkville LS1208 and it just had a different feel in your face deep attack to it. I have heard LS1208s before but never like this.  Any idea how they achieved this?

You might want to look at Maxxbass:

I have limited experience with it. But while the units can fool the ear into thinking it is hearing tones you are not actually hearing. They don't allow you to actually feel those notes

If you have a real system, properly set up, they are totally useless. If you have a BS system, they may give you the impression that you are getting a little bit more "boom", but it's somewhat like putting a brown bag over a pig; it's still a pig....

Actually, it's far from useless although I can easily see inexperience operators using it to attempt to compensate for a weak system.   I have yet to use it as an insert.

Where is the best place to put the 107, main out of the desk?, low out of the driverack?

There's no substitute for a true bass maximizer.

If you went that route, I believe you would want it before the driverack, as it generates frequencies that may end up going to your mid drivers.

OTOH, if you have a driverack, you can play with the subharmonic synth. It is sort of the opposite of the maxxbass in that it generates lower frequencies rather than higher ones. Depending on how your system is set up, you may prefer that. Also, if you have the lower end driverack, you already have it in your rig.
