    hi everyone.

    i have logic pro, and am looking for a headphone splitter so i can obviously listen to what i am producing with a friend. as the built in speakers do not offer much bass depth.. i live in the uk if there are any local retailers to me i can try ???

    thanks all

    I do not see an equalizer or any software for that matter giving the puny speakers in the iMac any more bass extension than it already has.

    Then you haven't tried Boom.

    I just did, it doesn't provide any extra bass extension.

    Hold the Option key while clicking the Boom Menu Bar icon:

    Nope, still nothing. I think you're confusing making the bass louder than actually making it extend deeper. In fact I get just as good results with the iTunes equalizer than Boom's fancy wannabe parametric EQ.

    There is only one solution to making the iMac get better bass extension:

    Get larger speakers.

    I didn't say anything about extending the bass range deeper. Boom does help with increasing volume and amplifying bass beyond what iTunes can do.

    There is no bass from the iMac speakers to amplify to begin with. They start to rolloff in the midrange.
