It's not great, but could be worse. Me and another poster were comparing impulse responses about a year ago. He had Yamaha HS5 and Kali LP6 from memory, and the Yamaha's were noticeably "tighter" (lower group delay). You should be able to find the posts by searching my history. But if you really want that perfect impulse, you should probably pay the price for speakers from companies like Neumann.What about step response?
I think it might be eye-opening to perform @Newman 's suggestion....but as a function of time, and that's something completely different than your usual eq. Physics and mathematics my friend, not just listening to music.
Do you seriously think that all physical phenomena can be explained by an equalizer?
Frequency response and time domain response are exactly equivalent and interconvertible via the Fourier transform (and inverse Fourier transform). "Speed" of a loudspeaker is directly seen in the frequency response, which is why Newman suggest to you what he did.I ask those who understand what transient and speaker speed are. And that you don't know what it means is not my fault

Theorem, i.e., proved to be universally true. If you don’t understand that, you need to hit the books before posting more nonsense....in theory
Indeed, using unbalanced inputs on IEC Class I equipment is pretty much asking for trouble. If unbalanced outputs are all you have, better use special adapter cables:Does anybody use IN-8 v2 on midfield, with 2 subs for instance? My planned room is about 42 sq.m (about 452 sq. ft). Same question about RCA inputs. As far as I understood it could have some problems (ground hum etc.)
Tell me you don't understand the basics of Fourier analysis without saying you don't understand the basics of Fourier analysis.This claim is absurd. It's the same as saying that all you have to do is make the exhaust louder to make the car go faster. Seriously, you don't see the difference? This is a different dynamic range of the transient - like the ADSR envelope. Not every speaker has the same efficiency, some don't react fast enough and have completely different dynamics. When the attack is fast and loud followed by its quick decay, the speaker sounds different than when the attacks are slower and weaker. Increasing the brightness brightens the entire signal, not the attack itself. That's why some sound gentle, others the opposite. Speakers cope with transients differently, regardless of the equalization. One speaker spits transients while another smooths them out. Static equalization doesn't change this, only a dynamic equalizer, compressor or transient designer could help a little here, but you don't even know what these devices are, because you only know the Apo equalizer. You raise the riverbed, not the water level, not distinguishing between these two concepts.
What does the frequency response of a critically damped speaker look like compared to one that's underdamped?Tell me you don't understand the basics of Fourier analysis without saying you don't understand the basics of Fourier analysis.
What does the frequency response of a critically damped speaker look like compared to one that's underdamped?
Does this mean that speakers using single order filters = smoother rolloff = critically damped? Because that would explain why speakers with sharp cutoffs in their FR charts (Neumann, Kali?) tend to be underdamped.
The concept of damping generally applies to the low-end response, not the crossover.Does this mean that speakers using single order filters = smoother rolloff = critically damped?
Damping is, by definition, a function of amplitude and phase response at the low-end rolloff. How else would you determine if a speaker is underdamped? Also, strictly speaking, the discussion only pertains to 2nd-order rolloffs... with DSP you can increase filter order almost indefinitely and do all kinds of funky things. You can expect DSP (and active) speakers to be substantially EQ'd.Because that would explain why speakers with sharp cutoffs in their FR charts (Neumann, Kali?) tend to be underdamped.
No. For example, in the figure above, ALL responses are second order.Does this mean that speakers using single order filters = smoother rolloff = critically damped? Because that would explain why speakers with sharp cutoffs in their FR charts (Neumann, Kali?) tend to be underdamped.
Lounge connected with kitchen, listening distance about 3 m from speakers, but I plan to use 2pcs WS-12. Hope in will be enough to get reference level in MLP. About RCA - XLR adaptor - does it have negative?what kind of listening distance would that translate to

And you still think that every speaker is equally fast and the solution lies in the equalizer? Well, Jean Baptiste must be turning in his grave...Tell me you don't understand the basics of Fourier analysis without saying you don't understand the basics of Fourier analysis.
Since I said nothing of the kind, why are you lying?And you still think that every speaker is equally fast and the solution lies in the equalizer? Well, Jean Baptiste must be turning in his grave...
