:-), some1 has been sneaking through the details...
Here's the recipe 4 a SUPA-low kick drum:
After ur assistant has accidentally played 20 sec of digital noise through the NS-10s rendering the tweeters useless, (but not b4 bitch-flogging the -s-h-i-t- out of him/her/it with exquisite chrome-edged patch cords) -
Get the NS-10 woofer out of the box - it may b some other woofer but this 1's a natural.
Attach a mic clip 2 the magnet by using plastic bands (AZIKONIM) or metal 1's.
Solder a mic cable 2 the + and - terminals, leaving the shielding isol8ed (not connected) on the speaker's side only.
Make sure the kick's skins r in good shape, tune the kick drum WELL 2 the natural overtone, DW style.
Move the kick around the room, find a spot (usually it's in front of 1 of the walls ) where U get solid ,tight low end.
Distance plays a major role here, since the it's the slap back from the wall which interacts with the drum @ the right wavelength.
Place ur usual "inside" mic the way U always do, place the woofer in front of the kick drum off center, more to the opposite side of the "hole", AWAY from the nasty wind sheer.
Experiment with placement until U get a tight low wave, something close 2 an 808 kick sound. No tweeter here, so U need not worry about bleed. IMO the LPF bleed improves the overall kit sound anyway.
Some engineers would however still prefer building the "tunnel" 4 the front-of-kick mic.
Now blend the "woofer-mic" fader with the "inside" mic fader 2 taste.
Levels and sound will vary with style and tempo - from "slightly beefing up" 2 "HEY! bring on them disco boots!" -
But U'll never b short of lows on the kick. EVER.
