    After a while, one can get very frustrated by the absence of concrete and detailed data and discussion of the meaning of the data when data are supplied, and even more frustrated by the lack of reconciliation of different views. In Stock Overview High Performance Loudspeakers, Sixth Edition is a fully revised and updated version of the highly successful guide to the design and specifications of high quality loudspeakers and loudspeaker systems. It just will not do to dismiss this sort of thing on no apparent grounds other than the popularity of narrow front floorstanders, a popularity that is based in good part on visual fashion. On face value, it seems that the book is wonderfully comprehensive and covers most you would like to know. Minimum purchase required.

    Expanded material on sub-sat design, 2pi and boundary speaker design, further work on optimum low frequency synthesis for improved group delay. Every possibility from hyper-directionality to omni radiation has its advocates. On face value, it seems that the book is wonderfully comprehensive and covers most you would like to know. By clearly and practically analysing these many developments the authors have produced an authoritative loudspeaker designer's bible.

    This is indeed something of a disgrace and embarrassment to the industry. And his discussion of the importance of time of arrival and time synchronization of drivers is not supported by any measurements here, even though it is quite easy to measure. In this experiment it was observed that a flat-response loudspeaker had an output almost audibly indistinguishable from its input, if the acoustic output were recorded anechoically. This is a question that could be answered, but it is not.

High performance loudspeakers book

But there is no discussion at all of how the response irregularities of the Quads—and there are some of audible significance—might respond to such corrections. I would caution the reader, though: If you want to take in as much of what the book has to offer as possible, you should read it carefully.

Much of the book, especially in the latter parts, reads as if it were descriptions of what would be provided in the way of concrete information if in fact concrete information had been provided. Measurements should be offered, one way or the other. Technology Nonfiction High Performance Loudspeakers, Sixth Edition is a fully revised and updated version of the highly successful guide to the design and specifications of high quality loudspeakers and loudspeaker systems.

Anyone writing seriously about speakers has to face the fact that standards of correct behavior are not really complete. Read more. It will also prove invaluable to students of electronics, broadcasting and recording techniques, and be of interest to amateur loudspeaker builders, authors and journalists in audio.

The name Beck does not even appear in the index! It is updated throughout with the latest progress in research and technology, synthesis and analysis, digital signal processing incorporated products, automated production test systems and wireless compact designs.

There is a reference to the work of Jorma Salmi and Anders Weckstrom on models of sound perception in-room and their startling acoustic-bypass experiment. The current edition has been brought thoroughly up to date.

High performance loudspeakers

Few people can compare with Colloms in the extent of his experience with loudspeakers. Acknowledged industry-wide as the definitive work on speaker design and analysis, this book is essential reading for audio engineers, speaker designers, equipment designers and students of acoustic engineering, electronics and electro-acoustics.

These do exist: The baffle step can be moved down far enough to be below the midrange, so that possible coloration of the mids from this source is prevented, avoiding High performance loudspeakers book discontinuities of narrow fronts which have baffle steps around Hz generally.

But instead, starting in Section Also crossover networks with new digital synthesis methods, and extensive reporting on CAD softwareNew measurement systems and techniques are complemented by recent psychoacoustic research data. The book deals with transduction principles, basic materials properties, design of efficient device architectures, material and device modelling, along with applications.
