    Behringer Truth B2031A - how to flatten it with the switches in the back only

    Creative Sound Blaster G3

    Importance of SPL-Response Linearity

    I keep looking at these graphs in Erin’s reviews and thinking these measurements deserve more discussion. Doesn’t a lot of difference hear suggest that the speaker’s dynamic response is poor?

    This whole topic is getting annoying. I don't need people to repeat the same facts about different technologies of drivers, Planar\BA\DD etc..
