AN EXCERISE IN RHYTHM AND TIMING
Rhythm is a vital part of musical experience and yet it's so often lacking in many audio systems, and in particular loudspeakers. Instead of a plodding tuneless bass, a mid-range which doesn't join up well with the low frequencies and a disembodied, uneven or prominent treble are commonly encountered. These factors impair the sense of coherence and integration. This means the subjective 'involvement' factor: the drive, the rhythm, the pulse of the music, is absent. For a loudspeaker the solution is complex, involving better time alignment, smooth energy output with frequency, and fast decay rates.
Many commercial designs are conflicted by the need to:
# Sound as loud as possible for the size and price
# Have the deepest most powerful bass
# Have a sparkling 'Hi-Fi' treble so the customer 'gets his money's worth'
In group tests these products often succeed, but may later lead to dissatisfaction.
So HI-FI CRITIC decided to design a lower sensitivity, DIY kit speaker, sealed box with well damped, extended fast bass, using a larger than usual enclosure, with defined wall boundary location. It has been engineered for fine time alignment using the linear phase BMR driver for mid-treble, married to a high power, pure piston, 220mm bass driver from SEAS
