Yamaha engineers have designed and produced new transducers for this latest range that deliver exceptionally clear, natural and detailed sound. The new transducers deploy Yamaha's advanced magnetic field design to more efficiently regulate the flow of magnetic response, contributing significantly to the purity of the sound. The Phase switch on your sub should probably be set to NORM (normal). However, if you’re getting a strange result, try switching it to REV (reverse), which reverses the phase. Adding a subwoofer to your home studio setup can make a huge difference in the sound you experience as you record, mix and master your music. If you’re considering making this change, there are some things you need to know.PHASE switch allow users to set up a subwoofer system with simple connections and no additional equipment Let's say I set the Low Cut (High Pass) filter max to 120Hz, that's mean the subwoofer will process the frequency <=120Hz, above that is processed by the main speakers. Then what will happen if I set the High Cut (Low Pass) to 80Hz? Where is the 81-120Hz gone? You might have to do more fussing and fiddling with settings to get things just right, but thankfully this should be minimal. Why? Because theYamahaHS8Sfeatures an internal crossoverthat handles most of the technical stuff automatically. It “keeps” the frequencies that it can handle and passes the rest off to your studio monitors. Whether those monitors are HS monitors or something else, the process works pretty much the same way.
