    Despite their rather scant appearance, many modern column loudspeakers deliver exceptional full-range performance, and this can be furthered by companion LF boxes and subwoofers. Although they’ve been around for more than a half-century, column loudspeakers are popular because they offer a compromise solution for those who need efficiency in the vocal range combined with even coverage and a very slim, unobtrusive profile. A look into line source coupling behavior and pattern control tells us that loudspeaker cones exhibit coupling behavior… View this story

    FFT-based field measurement systems have made it possible for us to do phase alignment at fixed installations as well as at live events, where every venue demands a different approach. This is particularly important since mid-high boxes are often flown and subwoofers remain on the ground, meaning that phase differences at the listener location can be very significant. Given the interest in the subject, and the remarkable improvement it can bring to a system, it seems like a good idea… View this story

    If one could listen to only the direct sound of a loudspeaker, the world would be a very different place! Unfortunately, free field listening, where you have no reflections, room modes or ambient noise, is hard to achieve in everyday life, so we listen to loudspeakers in real rooms. The interaction of a loudspeaker system and a room can be very complex to understand, model or measure! One way to measure this interaction is to measure the impulse response of… View this story
