Virtually every editing or audio mixing set-up uses audio monitor speakers — most often sitting on the either side of a computer monitor on the desktop. In these scenarios, the physical transfer of vibrations from the speakers to the desk’s hard surface can create a boost of mid and low
In Part 3 of this series on speaker technology, we saw that accurate loudspeakers need to consider the time, space and frequency domains. Now it is useful to consider what that means in terms of arriving at some kind of specification for a real loudspeaker.
In Part 2, of John Watkinson’s series of articles on loudspeakers, the critical time-domain operation of human hearing was considered. In Part 3, he explains how the frequency domain interacts with the time domain and why they are a crucial concern in any accurate loudspeaker design.
There are speakers and there are professional audio monitors. How do you know the difference and which should you buy for a specific pro audio application? The decision can be difficult if you don’t know the basics. Here is a primer on monitor speakers.
In this new series, John Watkinson discusses loudspeakers from several aspects including; how they work, the way they are perceived by the listener, the psychoacoustics of speakers. We’ll conclude this multi-part series by considering the psychology of selling and owning them. As with any technology, myths abound. If, in
