Gsal Posted June 20, 2022 Share Posted June 20, 2022 Hello all. The Treo CT fundamentally differs from the Quatro in that it does not offer the ability to fine tune it's bass response regardless of room position. So, how does one get the best out of the Treo's low end? Moving them closer to the front wall increases bass response and room coupling but far too often results in overblown bass and a lack of soundstage depth (my experience in my room). Placing them out in the room remedies that problem but low end response and room coupling suffers. I am driving my Treo's with an Aesthetix Atlas Signature which has a built-in crossover starting at 40 Hz and going up to 200 Hz (6 dB per octave slope). It has been suggested that I move the speakers close to the front wall and use the Atlas crossover to tame the low end. Of course moving the Treos and my 75# granite bases is no easy task. In addition, I am concerned that moving the speakers close to the front wall may increase the low end response in a non-linear fashion. For example, if this placement increased the overall bass response from say 150 Hz down by an even 6 dB then obviously setting the crossover at 150 Hz would result in an even response across the board. But if only the mid-bass is effected then this crossover setting would tame the mid-bass at the expense of losing the lower bass frequencies. Someday I hope to move up to the Quatro's but for now I am still trying to get the best out of my Treos. Has anyone had any experience dealing with this issue? Thanks in advance for your comments.
