anyone using speakers with hypertweeters and an sacd player yet? any audible improvement?
I think they call it "air" right? I mean we don't hear anything over 20k anyway.
Well, my dog might enjoy it.
Im sure if you have speakers with the ability to go past +40kHz you might hear a very, very slight improvement. Like Rob said, its just more air. And only just right about 20kHz. Even if you can hear that high you wont be able to hear higher than that. IIRC, some people say that these ultra-high frequencies help the imaging or sense of space.
Honestly, it is not a big deal to have such extension. Well, it is good to have tweeters that can go beyond our hearing cause usually that means that they will start breaking up in an inaudible range.
The sounds you do not hear as still exciting molecules in
the air to move through it. So is it not plausible for us
to say that sound above 20Khz has an effect on sound in and
It's like Over and Undertones in music.. They shape the way
the common notes sound.
Someday I hope all speakers have as broad a frequency range
as can be (without causing our mellons to implode)
I'm no expert so correct me if I'm wrong. Sound is frequency. Frequencies combine together to make harmonics. These harmonics add to the overall characterics of the sound. Frequencies above 20khz combine with frequencies below 20khz and create harmonics which you CAN hear. This is supposed to add to the overall character of the sound you hear.
So I assume nobody has listened to any yet?
Even if the Harmonics are in a range you still can not hear
the fact is that they are still interacting with everything
else in the air. So I say yes it has to make a difference.
To me "Full Range" should be 10Cycles to 100K Cycles
Sure 1 Cycle would be the beginning but would also cause
you death not to mention you would need a reall HUGE sub
to do it.... Something 70' long and maybe 7' in diameter
for an enclosure? LOL
