Daniel Ross says:

Your videos are amazing.. I currently have 2 JBL15 G2’s and a Numark N4
controller that a friend sold me quite cheap. Is this a good enough setup?

Digital DJ Tips says:

Sorry, I don’t know those speakers.

Digital DJ Tips says:

We haven’t reviewed any subwoofers so that’s purely my personal
recommendation. All I would say is buy good, even if it means buying
monitors first then delaying a subwoofer until you can afford it. If you’re
seriously considering adding a subwoofer, you’re obviously serious about
your music, so it’s worth having stuff that is up to the job.

doomtomb3 says:

Excellent advice. And I wish I heard the bit about never ever using your
home speakers for parties. Thankfully, my studio monitors survived the
night but I was pushing them way too hard.

Digital DJ Tips says:

We’re waiting for some for review.

Tiago Torres says:

Hey Phil, and the Krk Rokit Rp5 G2?

MADTAIL says:

i just bought a technika pc sound system 2.1, it has a subwoofer and 2
small speakers, the subwoofer has a Right Left (red white RCA) output on
the back and the the two speakers have the cables to fit, one speaker has
the red cable and the other white. what adapter do i need to make the
connection to the sound card so i can use the dj controller i want? i need
help cuz im really confused about it!

typicalboss says:

are krk rocket 8’s worth the money?

Digital DJ Tips says:

@BrooklynStyle106 Yes, but you may have to search a bit for them.

surfjay3000 says:

or how about the Sonic Impact I-p23 will this work?

TristanRealest says:

Thanks, I am looking at Yamaha YSTSW012 8″ Front-Firing Active Subwoofer.

Digital DJ Tips says:

Perfectly good enough.

Digital DJ Tips says:

Just buy an adaptor cable.

Steven Forrest says:

Thanks, I was wondering which ones to buy for my apartment so just bought
the M-Audio AV40 MKII Active Speakers from djstore,com. I have an open plan
living room/kitchen dining area and do not want the volume to get too
crazy. Have been using a Samsung 5.1 Dolby System but it’s not clear
enough…..started off with a Numark Mixtarck Pro II and a Reloop
Stand……which is really good. I just love music so much……..would
love to DJ at a club or that in the next 6-9 months, Thanks for your site

Digital DJ Tips says:

If they sound good enough to you, although I do not know the model you
speak of. You need decent volume and punchy bass to have any enjoyment at
all mixing with computer speakers.

Tiago Torres says:

Hey Phil, what about M-Audio BX5-D2?

logan sheehy says:

I am a new DJ and need to know if i should get a laptop or should i get a
iMac to Dj with

patrickchristensen96 says:

Thanks for the advice:-)

Digital DJ Tips says:

M-Audio Studiophile AV40s.

Digital DJ Tips says:

@MatthewGJones1 I need to upload my mixes somewhere, it’s on my “to do”
list”

TurboGames24 says:

hey, if your computer speakers have a 3.5mm jack output and your controller
has RCA outputs you can buy an adapter cable which has a 3.5mm output and
an RCA input. ~TurboGames24

TristanRealest says:

These look great but are a little high in my price range. I was hoping to
find a sub that was in the 0-150$ range. I am a beginner bedroom DJ so it
does not have to be an amazing sub. I just want it to produce clean strong
bass, and also be powered so I don’t have to buy an amplifier.

laylos101 says:

Hi Phil I’m thinking of buying the RoKit rp6g2’s. Do i need to buy a Sub
with them or are they good enough without one? Just bedroom djing as
beginner. I’ve currently got a pair of Kardon Harmon Soundsticks, do you
think these are OK and I don;t need the RoKit’s? Great advice on your
vids..especially like the one about using the controller box and poly
blocks to get a better table setup….respect on not pushing buying more
things! Steve

Digital DJ Tips says:

No, not at all. They won’t be loud enough and you will almost definitely
damage them. Borrow, hire or buy a PA for playing parties.

Digital DJ Tips says:

@JamesDeaconUK You just need 1/8″ TRS to twin RCAs off the top of my head.

Digital DJ Tips says:

Look at M-Audio (SBX10).

Digital DJ Tips says:

@TheFreakyPriest Glad to be of assistance. The course is much more about
playing your first gig; these videos are designed to give you all the
background you need.

Digital DJ Tips says:

Connect your DJ controller to your subwoofer and your speakers to the
subwoofer and it will all work fine.

Digital DJ Tips says:

Yes

Digital DJ Tips says:

Definitely a laptop

surfjay3000 says:

will regular dell speakers that u get with your desktop, and have a usb and
plug work?

Matthew Jones says:

Hi phil I have been watching your videos for a few days now and I am really
into the learn to dj 50 part course, this Is really helpful as i am only 13
and I really want to be a dj as I love music and have had some experience
on a digital deck and a cd deck but I have never had one of my own. I am
thinking of getting the Hercules 4-mx to practice on in my room until I am
old enough to to out and do a gig. I would really like to see and hear some
of your mixes as you and digital dj tips have giv

Digital DJ Tips says:

@tquest1 In all honesty if it’s too loud, your neighbours won’t care which
speakers you went for! I am not familiar with the Pioneers but the KRKs are
a good sounding speakers. How loud you choose to push it is up to you… 😉

Rum Mur says:

Hello, Im having a hard time looking for the Reloop ADM speakers here in
the US…. Are they sold here ?

Digital DJ Tips says:

Sorry can’t say, we’ve not tested them.

Digital DJ Tips says:

For home use? I like M-Audio AV40s.
