KM184 - recording distance for classical guitar?
Author: Per Lindhof

Dear all
I use a pair of KM184 for recording my classical guitar. The set up is stereo with 22 cm between the capsules which are angled 45 degrees apart. I record at 90-100 cm distance.

My question is if the KM's will suffer from bass loss if I increase the distance to for example 1.5 or 2 metres (the limit of my 14 m2 room)?
I know it's a matter of experimentation but I've read that cardiods loose bass at greater distances (oppisite to omnis), and I'm curious about where the "technical" limit is for the KM184's.

Kind regards
