We found a music studio that was closing down and selling it's audio gear. They were offering two Genelec 1038CF and a Genelec 7071A subwoofer. The 1038CF were not so interesting for us because they only go down to 50Hz. But we had to get the 2x12" sub. First tests are quite promising ;)

We're trying to find the best location for the sub. Putting it closer to the wall should enhance the low end power.

Genelec 7270A SAM subwoofer test2017-02-10

sub test
Connecting the Genelec 7270A sub was quite tricky because it only has digital inputs (AES/EBU). Using a PC with M-Audio 1010LT PCI soundcard we could convert the Meridian 861 sub out to coax S/PDIF (0.5V/75Ohm), and then with a Neutrik impedance transformer to XLR AES/EBU (5V/110Ohm). The sub worked quite well in most scenes, but unfortunately the overload protection kicked in quite often... I guess the 250W amp just isn't strong enough for our room. Maybe the successor, the 7370A with its 400W amp could be ok.
