good low end is expensive.

expensive to treat in a room, expensive to reproduce with speakers.

thick curtain wont fix low end, and unless it's a large room you probably have low end issues

Depends on what you consider “expensive”. All of the above can be done for less than $1000 USD in a typical home studio housed in a 10 x 10 room or similar.
Win 10 | Reason 11 | Studio One 4.5 | i7 3770 @ 3.5 Ghz | 16 GB RAM | Mushkin Reactor 1TB SSD | RME Babyface Pro| Nektar Panorama P-4 | Akai MPC Live | Roland System 8 | Roland TR-8 with 7x7 Expansion | Roland TB-3 | Roland System 1 | Roland MX-1

Ten feet or meters?

I'd be hardpressed to treat a room and buy a speaker system with convincing lows and treated for room modes (i dont know what lows are we talking about? I'm talking about low-lows, not lowmids.)

I guess in a 10m x 10m room if you don't go super low it's fine.

I think its more a question of what I consider LOW and TREATED, not expensive.
Because for 1000$ you can't do shit for below 100Hz in a small room.

Feet. And yes - you CAN treat for under 100hz for less than $1000.

Fold old carpets from the household trash. And get measurement equipment for the 1000$ followed by a lot of trial and error...; - )
