Yes, i was wrong, i should have not said ’a perfect sound system’

A bad speaker could be a 8” full ranger with a poor freq response, a bad room could be an empty garage, or a closet. Set up your speakers and you near the middle of the room and listen in the near field, make adjustments to your eq/dsp to your liking. Then tell me how this system sounds to you

You can't EQ polar responses.

I've factually tested this, on axis and in the nearfied there is no polar issues at very low levels, a bad loudspeaker driver sound bad and a good sound good...
Are you expecting to some HF and LF accuracy from a 8" FR ?... you should try LSD instead of DSP.

In this case you've largely taken the room out of the equation, so it's off topic
