IKEA ENEBY sounds better than expected.
Now with the Covid-19 everybody stay at home thing I annoyed my loved ones and neighbours frequently with my bass practice.
To avoid this I needed a desk top configuration with a few conditions:
1. Has to fit on my desk (duh)
2. Has to sound GOOD
3. Has to sound good at low volume
I noticed that my IKEA ENEBY 30 powered bluetooth speaker has a really good bass rendition.
So, as I know it also has a mini jack entrance, I thought I try hooking it up with a pre-amp and equalizer and give it a go.
WOW! This set up sounds soooooo good that I’m not going back to using a genuine bass amp for practice in my apartment.

Other materials and tools:
- Art Tubepac tube pre-amp/compressor
- Ampeg Analogue Bass preamp
All you need to do is hook up pre-amp to Eneby 30.
Hook bass to preamp, turn devices on and play.
It sounds soooooo good!
I can imagine it being very usable for guitar and keyboard too.
OK. I understand this basically is not a real ‘hack’. It just is an IKEA ENEBY 30 powered speaker hooked up to some other stuff. But, as I am so enthusiastic about it and there might be a lot of bass and /or guitar players out there who could benefit from this, I thought I’d share.
