Hey Dork, you didn't waste anyone's time. I think this is the first time I heard as many opinions about the subject in one location. No need to Stew over it

A full-range driver is, in my opinion that can play music well without the need of a helper woofer or tweeter. CSS EL70 is a good example. It may not have the very highest highs or the very lowest bass but it can play most music and it sounds good.

A full range speaker is a speaker with any number of drivers playing 20-20000Hz -3dB, in my opinion.

Me too. Fullrange Driver means (to me) a wide band driver that can be used by itself and cover most of the music. Pretty simple. How wide that band is depends on the driver and the box. Fullrange Speaker is another term.

Then there is the "FR with help" cheat. Be really, once you get a helper woofer and a helper tweeter in there, isn't it a just 3-way speaker?

Well, isn't he right? Maybe not a 3-way SPEAKER but a 3-way setup

Just to stir the Stewpot a bit, why exactly 20-20K? I know I certainly can't now (perhaps never could) hear that high, and on the few occasions that I've been "treated" to much content below 40 (i.e big sound effects laden THX cinema), it's not been particularly enjoyable. I can be damned happy enough with what I hear from say just a pair of Alpair10.2 - "full" enough for me - shouldn't that be enough?

Of course it's a 3 way. The XO points don't matter do they?

Huh, Chris just asked that, in different words, in the mark audio forum.

Chris, sucks to be you! jk, but I do love low frequencies. Even when they make my gut turn to soup.
