Hello. I am a student of film school, focusing on sound design.
I'm thinking about to buy Yamaha HS8.
I would like to ask you if it wouldn't be better to get something with a subwoofer. (Tho its very small room).

Or if you know about something more fittable.
Thank you for any opinion and shared knowledge.

Subs can be a tricky beast, especially in small rooms. I would go without one. If I were to start over in a small room, I would go with the Kali LP6 monitors. My second choice would be the JBL LSR305 latest version.

do you want to be a film maker or a sound designer? the poll suggests the latter?

either way, you'll want decent monitors to listen to the sound designers work. but a sub in small room id avoid personally.

I will buy Kali Audio LP6. Thanks very much! Helped me a lot!
Don't take the poll seriously, it's just a joke for brightening your day.
