    How does bandwidth affect a driver's max SPL?

    Long time lurker, first time poster. In an interview at Erin's Audio Corner, Purifi co-founder Lars Risbo mentioned that a driver playing a narrow passband can generally produce higher SPL than the same driver playing a wider part of the spectrum. If this is true, there must be some...

    Moving past measurements: UI/UX and equipment design, the next frontier?

    I'd like to say, in the past ~5 years or so, we've seen the advent of the "transparency" era. Sure, you still get one or two turds here and there, but for the most part, companies are catching on that measurements matter, and we're entering a new era of endgame transparency in audio equipment...

    Hello! Just found Peter Aczel's (RIP) "Journalistic Legacy" article about his experience and knowledge of six decades of audio: He mentioned "monkey coffins" in his article and as far as I understand he was not a fan of such...

    Flipped Polarity Speaker Design and Harmonics-No Hope?

    I wish I had time to read all the acoustic and speaker design books I have (and have access to) so I could learn about in-polarity designs vs in-phase-at-xover designs. I come from a live sound background, and it seems this is the equivalent, please correct me if I am wrong: 1. Take the sound...

    Speaker Cabinet Design Considerations

    As I read other parts of the forum, found there was not an obvious home for speaker cabinet design, so hope this helps organize a bit better. Personally am interested in whatever can be done to improve the sound quality of a speaker, but also how it affects the speaker cost. Whether it be...
