Why are fullrangers more intelligible ?
 
Let' s be nice though.........

Point source ?

Less hf reflections from walls ?

I've been digging, and the phase is not really flat, it usually dives negative as freq increases...............

and the phase is not really flat, it usually dives negative as freq increases...............

While still generally following minimum phase rules (if it's not ringing)...

So many multi-ways have a crossover point right where it hurts the most. Full-rangers dodge this bullet.

That's one of several factors that surely makes them more intelligible and natural sounding (to my ears).

Perhaps it's because they have no bass ;)

small coils, generally lighter spiders and lower moving mass than woofer equivalents (?) that said, I have some light Beyma 12cx which are "better" than 12LTA. (please slap another pound of magnet on that thing)

I have noticed that songs played on TV are often more intelligible that the originals through the stereo. TVs have no bass and limited treble... Or the broadcasters boost the midrange anyway?

cogitech 11th January 2021 11:55 PM

Wait. Preponderance of midrange = intelligible? (I disagree).

We need to get our language straight if the discussion is to mean anything.

Lyrics are often more easily heard on TV than on stereo, even when not looking at the picture to get some lip reading help. Why?

True, I took intelligible to be about speech

Quote:

The important frequency range for speech intelligibility is in the 1,000 Hz to 4,000 Hz range. Often, a boost of 3 to 5 dB in this range will increase the clarity.
