What makes really good speakers sound really good?
« on: February 25, 2009, 03:43:03 pm »

I'm looking for several people near me (Western Connecticut, Northern NJ, NYC) to loan a single full-range loudspeaker for an interesting research project. If willing, please email me from my personal site http://www.ethanwiner.com including your real name, address, and phone number.

That'd be great Fran. I'd also like to actually hear them at some point in a regular control room etc.

I've been disappointed at the lack of response, but a few people have stepped up to the plate. Then again, I understand why people wouldn't want to lend their expensive speakers to a stranger! Very Happy

The way it's worded seems odd to me - are you asking folks to haul in their own speakers for you to test at your place?

And if so you're surprised by lack of response?

Not my place, but an acoustics lab. And not so much people far away, but locals who would find the process interesting to watch and be a part of. It's a great research project, and I think the results will be very useful to the audio community. I have an email that goes into much more detail, which I've sent to people who responded.
