    This might sound like a strange question but…..How do you describe full vs. hollow? I’ve heard people describe a speaker as full but sometimes I think the sound is hollower.

    Sometimes you can hear more of a separation between the instruments and it is not as muddy, what do you call that? I don’t mean crisp or clean sounding I mean something else but I’m not sure what.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks and happy holidays

    A fuller speaker probably has a more even frequency response. A hollow probably has has bigger peaks, which you hear those, and the rest sound lost, or muddy. Generally deeper bass makes the sound fuller.

    Sound is very hard to describe how a speaker sounds. Especially since everyone prefers something different. That is why you should always audition speakers before buying them.
