    2,3,4,5-way speakers: how many ways is optimum?

    Somewhat , it depends on the design goals , for an all out SOTA design best to use multiple cabinets , IMO unless you are using compression type Horn drivers , linesource works best over point source here .. But yes you will end up with a pretty large monolith doing a 5 way setup, but also...

    2,3,4,5-way speakers: how many ways is optimum?

    Some of that reduced dynamics takes place in the recording Brad , dynamic compression is necessary for audio system playback due to the high crest factors ..

    2,3,4,5-way speakers: how many ways is optimum?

    Btw my first full active system was in 78 , i built and designed a lot of fully active systems thru the 80's , a lot with custom bespoke Electronic Xovers , so i'm not negative to or against them , i just happen to find passive and quasi active/ passive to be superior in delivery and...

    2,3,4,5-way speakers: how many ways is optimum?

    Yes i can , We did sighted and blind listening We level match We do comparisons in different locations We do at least 3 different sessions to verify consistency and drive equipment Not to worry , not everyone is comfortable outside of their ideological footprint , i wonder how many active...

    Active horn speaker from German Abacus

    Hello Frank , Thanks for the link and this is what i gathered from their measurements, *The Anima is 9db down at 40hz @3M *Sensitivity is close enuff to the rated 109 @1K with 2.83V, but not sure if it's 8 ohm at 1K could not read numbers listed * Bass driver FB resonance is 50 hz *Xover freq...

    2,3,4,5-way speakers: how many ways is optimum?

    Nope, this is one projecting , i have had some ugly suckers sound good , no issues here with looks vs cause There is still a lot of unknown in the field , the human hearing system is one. Many cant hear this glare and bad timbre with amplfiers, speakers , et al, so not all is equal and...

    2,3,4,5-way speakers: how many ways is optimum?

    My listening experience is pretty Broad MrJ-J , been there done that and took home the trophy , subjectively , full active fails the natural test, objectively there are merits to what can be done, but the ears sensitivity to all that electronic glare in the 1-6 K range and beyond becomes...

    2,3,4,5-way speakers: how many ways is optimum?

    Lol, this is hilarious .... :) Where do you get this stuff from , i have yet to hear active anyway beat a passive setup, in reality an hybrid active , passive setup is optimally the best approach when exceeding 3 way , due to inductor size when doing a 4 way, so active , Bass, Sub bass ...

    Active horn speaker from German Abacus

    Well , the proximity to the floor changes the output pressure and IMO does not make it operate typically like a bass horn , not to mention, while the flare is long , the exit is pretty small for gain , the 40Hz maybe possible due to the long flare , but being sealed i Would love to see the...
