Question: Seeking Speaker review that had a good low end sound

A few weeks ago, I started to read reviews was originally looking for the best speaker of "overall" sound in all sound frequency range. But I had changed my mind and decided to focus on the music I listen to mainly listen to instrumental music, and of the traditional type usually in between 55hz-1100hz (yes i do mean Hz) sound range.

Now the catch I do remember reading a review of a speaker that had a very very good level low end sound replication... but it gets funky near the higher end but I dismissed it being I was searching in a different mindset..... now now I cant find it anymore. (not too sure if it was here on sterophile or on Hometheatherreview)

that or a recommendation if you dont know =P

Please ignore as I see you're

Please ignore as I see you're looking for a full range speaker and not a subwoofer.

Probably might help though if you included a price point you'd like to be at or below.

Yea not subs.... im more looking for clarity and sound replication in the 55-1100hz range. (the insturment that I listen to the most it the guqin which its sound range is in between that Hz range)

the article review had a perfect low end sound range, but I just cant find it anymore... and being I dont even recall the brand in question it is prob a the sky is blue search.

Need More Info

Stats and speaker specifications only tell half the story ... sometimes. Your own ears always tell the whole story. Among other considerations (e.g. amplification power & quality; sources like turntable, CD, streamers, etc.), you should also consider your listening room or environment (i.e. size; shape; dimensions, including ceiling height; furnishings; etc.). With a little more info along these lines, people will be better able to make educated suggestions.

Um 99% of that don't matter, given the instrument in question. I wish to recreate the sound of the instrument if I was in the same room.

Here is a live recording of my teacher if your sitting in the same room (he has good recording instruments, and sometimes go to an actual studio for recordings for his cds, me playing would be about the same just crappier hahaha)

Basically the instrument is not loud itself and very low in the sound spectrum..... so speakers loudness isn't needed. Which also reduces the need size/shape/dimensions but ups the need for clarity of the speaker itself in the 55Hz - 1100Hz sound range. Sterno sound even isnt really needed tbh

Edit: If you want to know what remastered or amp version will sound like here are two (I dont like it being it loses some details of the instrument which you can hear in the top two links, but still again not very loud.

Interesting instrument!

I am not very familiar with that instrument but the low notes it produces sound very similar to low E on a guitar in a conventional E tuning. That's around 40 Hz. So, you may want to consider speakers that will reach that low reasonably accurately. There are a lot of good choices depending, of course, on how much you want to spend.
