- Has an affect on the overall sound
- Extreme variations in room frequency
response can lead to problems.
a) Reduce standing waves
b) Reduce Bass Buildup in corners with
c) Keep room and equipment layout
d) Use Absorptive and Reflective surfaces
to help “shape” room’s character.
- 2 Ways
a) alter settings on Speaker itself (either
active or passive)
b) Equalizing Monitor Amplifier feeds
a) use 1/3 octave graphic EQ
b) use calibrated microphone
(at listening position)
c) use colored noise (Pink Noise)
in conjunction with a Spectrum
Analyzer to set EQ levels
Shows relative levels of
signals at various frequencies.
Can be used with Pink Noise (Equal level at all frequencies) to try and create a “flat” response
from the monitoring system.
- 2 Primary types
1) Air Suspension (No Ports)
2) Bass Reflex (Ported)
Can be “two-way” (tweeter & woofer) or
Using Multiple elements requires the use of a Crossover Network.
Crossover splits the spectrum into bands that allow proper reproduction from each driver.
Can be Active (Electronic Crossover) or passive.
- Becoming very popular today.
- 2 or 3-ways (bi-amped or tri-amped)
- Easier expandability
- No external amplifiers needed.
