Loudspeaker Specifications for Professional Applications

  • John M. Eargle

Abstract

In this chapter we will discuss the principal specifications of loudspeaker components used in professional sound design. These include:
  1. 1.

    On-axis frequency response

     
  2. 2.

    Impedance

     
  3. 3.

    Sensitivity

     
  4. 4.

    Electrical power input ratings (thermal and displacement)

     
  5. 5.

    Power compression

     
  6. 6.

    Distortion (discrete harmonics)

     
  7. 7.

    Directional characteristics

     
  8. 8.

    Thiele-Small parameters
