Default How to test speakers?


I'm currently building a pair of Zaph's BAMTM speakers for myself. This is my first build and I will post a build thread soon. One question that's been on my mind as I've been working on these speakers is how I should check whether or not I have built the speakers correctly. I'm not sure how'd I do this besides listening to them very carefully. I don't have any listening equipment but I'm just worried that I may not be getting the full potential from Zaph's design because of some error I made during construction.

Impedance varies with frequency, use impedance plots of your drivers and make crossover calculations using the actual impedance of the driver at the crossover frequency

At the very least get the necessary tools to do impedance measurements.
Drivers can be off T/S specs by 15% or more.
