There's quite a few ways this question can be answered, but perhaps the most concise way to do it is to ask you to consider the properties of waves in general. You understand that in order to produce sound, the membrane has to vibrate. In order to vibrate, a force must act upon it and that force is provided by the coil and the magnet that sit at the apex of ...

Electrically, yes. Acoustically no. You also have to take into consideration the physical effects of having multiple point-sources of audio, specifically the way that each point-source interacts with the other. IF you are placing these four speakers inside a single cabinet, then there are other acoustic effects relating to bass porting and cabinet volume to ...

Assuming that the preamp outputs are line level, then yes it is perfectly safe to do this. You will wire the connection up as follows: Ground (RCA) to Pin 1 and 3 (XLR) Signal (RCA) to Pin 2 (XLR) A converter plug should be fine and it should have the same wiring as this.

"Most people have noticed that when a speaker of any size is placed against a wall, it’ll deliver stronger bass response. This can be a strong temptation to use this acoustic phenomenon (a function of standing waves) to provide some additional heft, especially from smaller (less than 8”) woofers. But this room-enhanced bass will have an uneven frequency ...

Power conditioners serve more than just a surge suppression role, but for a small all included system like this you probably don't need to worry much. It might be worth a basic surge protector to protect it if you want, but unless you are having problems with noise, you probably don't need a power conditioner on such a small setup. Power conditioners are ...

One of the best resources that deals with this subject is to be found on the site of Genelec, speaker manufacturer. https://www.genelec.com/sites/default/files/media/Studio%20monitors/Catalogues/monitor_setup_guide_2017.pdf Specifically, page 9 of this document is worth a read.

That's caused by reflections off the walls interfering with the direct sound from the speaker. At some frequencies, the reflection will cancel out the direct sound, at other frequencies they will add up, so the frequency response changes from the intended one. The manual may contain some information on the intended placement of the speakers. Some ...

This is basically going to take you into the realm of Audio over IP. There is really only one game in town for this sort of application, which is Dante. (www.audinate.com) There are other players, but you are really going to want to approach this from a standards perspective. You will need some Dante termination adapters (ethernet to XLR) which you can (I ...

Out of personal experience (I work 9 years as a system technician) I would say "you won't have a problem". If you look at it from a "more scientific" point of view the way buzzes (and in general interference) bleeds into cables is, most of the time, through (electro)magnetic induction (for more information if you are unfamiliar with the phenomenon look for "...

I know it's been a year since the OP, though it looks like no easy solution was found. What you want is known as a DJ Cable. As the name implies, typical use-case is for splitting headphone and speaker outputs for DJ sets, but practically speaking it does exactly what you're asking. Native instruments makes one for $9 available here: https://www.amazon....

Deity no. That's like converting a dachshound to a dobermann by replacing the legs. The speakers are designed and manufactured and tested and calibrated as one item. You cannot even exchange the cone of one speaker by any old cone of an arbitrary equal-sized speaker.

I have a 2008 Macbook hooked up via headphone jack to my McIntosh receiver. The sound is incredible (this is also true for my 2004 Dell laptop). I have a much newer HP laptop that puts out terrible sound through its headphone jack. Thus I purchased the dragonfly 1.5 and now it sounds fantastic. Then I put dragonfly on my 2008 Macbook. I would defy ...

I have always been under the impression that it had to do with the type and construction of the voice coil. And the magnet size contributed to the dynamics and tone of the speakers functioning (hz. etc). With formers like paper vs. Nomax, it definitely changes the amount of heat dissipation, which lowers or increases the power handling capacity of the voice ...
