Annex Speaker Kit Development – Acoustic Design Goals, Cabinet Design Considerations, Transducer Measurements

Acoustic Design Goals My acoustic design goals for the Annex speaker were as follows. smooth frequency response within the listening window with a 1dB to 2dB tilt from 100Hz to 10KHz smooth in-room mic position averaged frequency response with a 5-6dB tilt from 100Hz to 10KHz smooth sound power response with directivity rising with frequency…

Generic Passive Crossovers – Not Recommended

To achieve the textbook filtered curve you expect from generic off-the-shelf or textbook equation calculated passive crossovers, these generic implementations require a constant load impedance/resistance and assume your transducers exhibit a linear frequency response. That constant load is usually 4 or 8 ohms. A transducer’s impedance varies with frequency. We can compensate for the varying…
