    aaaah, i wouldnt even buy 5.1 in the first place, but straight monitors for dubstep, that way you can save the equalizer-settings. the equalizer may optimize your sound, but it isnt true sound, it can definitely distort your sound.
    Don't you just want to switch the names of the "DubStep" and the "Requests" sections?

    I've found that 5.1 sucks for music on a big system like that (I have a similar system myself), I'd recommend running it in stereo, or stereo + if you have the option (using two speakers for left and two for right instead of one for each).

    and to answer your question, bass boost is my personal favorite, since I think most tracks aren't mastered with enough bass. (not a fan of eq though)

    this is something you just say when youre using a hifi-system, you will never hear this from someone with a proper system/monitors

    actually I heard alot of people talking about their hifi systems are bassboosted to much and I believe monitors are more for producing / mixdowns / analyzing music, which doesn't mean that you can enjoy music properly on a good hifisystem! which doesn't mean that you can enjoy music properly on monitors
    it's just about what you wanna do imo

    So do monitors alone provide adequate/clear bass? As I understand it they are designed for mid and high frequencies.

    I'm interested in upgrading to a pair myself... But I need dat bass....

    Also music can definitely be enjoyed properly with a non-monitor system... One of the biggest factors is how you connect, for example I am connected with an optical cable, and this has made a bigger difference than anything. I've read that connecting with optical or coax is the digital equivalent to connecting with an xlr cable, which is what monitors use.

    you can choose TRS or XLR, depends on how you connect. i recently changed from mono TRS (monitors) to mini TRS (soundcard) - to XLR to TRS (new interface), because the interface separates left and right. sounds much better now (because of the interface, soundcard was oooold).

    so you see that there are many factors that play a role. its true that theyre not THAT good with bass, because you normally plug in an extra subwoofer (thats why they have a manual lowcut-filter most of the times, plug in a subwoofer and lowcut at 100hz, so that they wont play any significant subbass-frequencies and stuff), BUT - and heres the big but (no pun intended) - the bass that they provide (using yamaha hs80m) is much much more than enough for a normal household, which is also much clearer than most normal hifi-systems provide (cant talk about the expensive ones, really expensive hifi-systems provide similar sounds when wired correctly). i dont know if you have your own apartement or youre still living at home, if theres more than one family in your house (dont know the correct terms right now, in germany we call it mehrfamilienhaus ), you will never ever be able to even remotely play as loud as your monitors can.

    imagine a scale from 1 to 10, both monitors are on 2 of 10, so that i can control the volume with one knob on the interface. play a tune out loud (remember, 2 of 10) at that volume and you can hear it in the basement (im on the second floor). think thats more than enough bass for your home

    Oh shit, didn't know this

    good news right here, since i was worried i'd have to fork out far too much additional cash for a sub. I had read this from others online, but its much better to hear it from a fellow bass head

    hmm, are monitors able to create very low frequencies? my current sub (logitech z-680) dips down to 35hz, and, as i understand it, even that isn't low enough for some tunes. (not sure on this)

    you can't really hear a difference between 10 hz and 40 hz as example
    important for sub bass is the frequency area between 50 and 150 hz
