i wouldnt consider the factors a retail company has to account for as 'a lot' or even 'alot'
but many people fail to realize that the most important factor that is accounted for is PROFIT.
once a company decides to build a large amount of one product, then they have to start worrying about breaking even for production costs.
a large percentage go to the retail stores, and whatever doesnt get sold will be sold off to float around in warehouses and sold 'alternatively'
but if screwing a speaker into a speaker box is too dificult for you.. then go ahead and be that idiot who spent more and received less.
holding onto such an arguement is how fights break out like the book 'the outsiders'
however, i dont recall informing much about the frequencies required for music.
i just know that the music of today goes fully digital and there are needs for 'wind' all over the multimedia experience.
i am not one to remain cool calm and collected when i see someone say 'good enough' far from complete, much less - far from quality.
its not my problem when someone slides the 60hz slider on their equalizer and they come to think that 'hey this is all the bass i need'
i'm angered that this forum is tailoring to the details in vocals as if those details are highly sought after by music producers.
because as reality has it.. some music producers will use a microphone LESS sensitive to hide background noises and unwanted 'tones' of voice from the performer.
bass comes in two parts.
1. that is heard.
2. that is felt.
being in a car with subs in the trunk and 1000 watts is not the same as being in a studio with calibrated EQ's and calibrated wall reflections.
MASTERING audio means at the end of a song you are hit by a gust of wind without any sound or tone associated with that breeze.
there is so much love to be had by using big woofers to move the air within the room.
you would be as excited as a kid in a candy store if you came across some of the tracks that date well into the early 1990's
simply having new respect for the producers of the song was a surprise for me.. and if i enjoyed the song prior to learning of the 'air effects'
now i enjoy the song even more.
but as i said.. these people are just trying to sell what they own stock in.. rather than looking at the material that is being played over these speakers.
if the mastering producer is creating special effects in the air because there is a wall of speakers in the studio.. you are not gonna get anywhere close with your attempt by purchasing some 4 or 5 inch woofer with 8-70 watts of power.
i am selling a different drug that is closer to complete than the rest of these people.
and the truth is showing itself a bit by knowing that the songs from the early 1990's are capable of the air effects.. which are way before all the audio 'icons' were introduced.
and mainly because back in the late 1980's all of the audio standards were complete and ready to be rolled out into the consumer market.
if you think that dolby digital and THX and DTS and 7.1 channel encoding all came about just months before its release.. you would be a damn fool.
none of the technology was created yesterday.. it allows the C.I.A. to track it better/easier.
all of the world reknown hacks have been completed in the past way before the product was released to the public.. that way when the next person tries to do the same thing, everybody is prepared and ready.
i havent heard the other products but i'd love to hear 'em so that i could either laugh some more or provide truth as to which sounds better.
but chances are, i would probably just switch midranges to something that sounds better and still come out cheaper than the prebuilt stuff.
you cant screw a speaker onto a speaker box..?
it makes me wonder if i can use that persons bathroom without catching some sort of cold or virus.
do i really need to walk out with soap remaining on my hands so that i dont catch a sneeze?
