“The SUBPAC is a fantastic tool in the studio because it allows me to feel the bass without any acoustic distortion from the room. It costs thousands of dollars to properly treat a room for bass. This process often involves designing and building the room specifically for acoustics. Ain’t nobody got the cash for that! In the past I would get around the acoustics of my room by touching the speakers or subs and feeling the dynamics with my fingers. It works, but it takes you out of the sweet spot and can only be done for a minute or two at a time before it becomes uncomfortable. The SUBPAC is the most elegant solution to this problem I have yet encountered. Simple, effective and affordable.”
