Dear All,


funny how this thread is drifting off in the old "measuring versus hearing" debate...
I always was of the opinion that this debate is totally useless, as in my humble opinion a loudspeaker should sound really good and should measure OK.
There´s a lot to be measured, and one can find a lot of informations in measurements, but not the information how the speaker sounds...
Other things are not good to measure, let´s say the difference between a simple cap and an expensive cap in the crossover, matched to the final result: if they´re of the same value, the crossover measures identical, but the listening experience will tell the difference.


As always, YMMV.


All the best


Mattes

The frequency response will tell you a lot if it's done accurately enough. It would be interesting do know what other measurements are useful when it comes to predicting how a speaker will sound?

As I stated, Step Response mostly.
It will tell you if a speaker is boomy, if it will feel "fast" or if the percussion instruments will be blurry. Combine that with Impulse, and waterfall... you can almost hear it in the room.

Here's something easy to read concerning Step Response:

Yes, that should just about cover it I can't imagine that drivers with different sound signatures/materials/construction would under any circumstances measure the same
