Studio monitors as ext speakers (1 reply)
Hi! Has anyone experince from using high quality studio monitors as external speakers for an digital organ?
We are going to install an new organ ( possible Viscount Domus) in a small church - 80 seats- that are beeing build right now, finished nov 24. There are limited space and also estetical limitations so speaker choises are hard to decide. I wonder how 4 Genelec 8040, paired with a sub would work? We already have a older Viscount in a small chapel , with 4 Proel 8 inch speakers ( cheap plastic active PA speakers) plus a sub that reaches 25 hz. It sounds rather ok, but you can hear lack of resolution in the speakers if you listen with a critical ear. And the separation is not so good. Any thoughts?
I would advise against using high quality studio monitors as speakers for a church organ.
The most important feature for organ speakers is size, the main speakers should be as large as possible so that you get a good response down to at least 20Hz. Organs generally have little or no sound emitted above 10kHz so there is no real need for tweeters.
