An Unconventional Loudspeaker system Latest change 2019-01-22
Bass is only heard when it is in the recorded material. Many
recordings appear to have not much bass content. Loudspeakers of
lower quality tend to produce bass with such material. We call
that boom (dutch: boembassen). Boom is completely absent in this
Bass lines can be followed easily. With lower quality loudspeakers
many bass notes seem to have the same pitch.
The very low frequencies often present in movies and
TV-documentaries are very well audible. I do not need shakers
under the coach.
Speaking voices sound naturally, without the resonances often
heard in lower quality loudspeakers. No sharp "S"-es.
And, of course the transparency in the high frequencies. But I was
used to ESL's for many years already.
A professional sound engineer: (recording, PA):
This asks for analytical listening...
A visitor who came to my place to talk about an amplifier
design he was working on: (I never met the man before)
- Complete absence of boom.
- Very transparent high frequencies. (Never before he had heard
ESL's he told me.....)
