    Hi there,

    i have a few question about speaker,and need ur help here.

    Sometimes when i listen to the audio,i can hear clearly that the sound lacks of warmth/focusthe,but hard to quantify, do there any document to judge it?

    And do the speakers get tuned in some way even after passing the tests?

    Thank you.

    Hello Phoebe,

    I am not sure that I understand your question but many speakers sound very different to each other. Some speakers are very cold and dry whilst others seem to be much warmer.

    Thank you Ian.

    Do there have any written document/FAQ on how you test and evaluate the audio sound?

    I also want to know do a pair of speaker sound bad even though it has passed the audio test?
    Because sometimes when I listen to the music at home, I feel the sound not very well, but the speaker I bought from the vendor should be passed all the test, is this problem just my subjective feeling or is it the speaker’s problem?

    Thanks

    Phoebe

    Hello Phoebe,

    May I suggest that you try to get some information about valuating the sound?
    You could start with e.g. the advice that What HiFi gives (in paper, but more extended on

    It can be a mixture of factors that can affect the sound of the music including the make of amp, the quality of the source eg cd, record etc. The make of the source player, the interconnects and the speaker cables.

    In the end though its your ears that appreciates the sound or hates it.

    dont quite understand question but you generally find that a speaker with a lower Hz output sounds warmer. i.e a 40Hz speaker is warmer than a 60Hz speaker
