After reading a lot of posts out here on this board and numerous others, there seems to be a difference of opinion as to whether the Paradigm Studio series can be a tad bright. Deciding to fool around with my sub/main crossover on my Anthem AVM-20 to obtain the best integration with my Studio 40's/20's, I used a Stereophile Test disk and RS SPL meter to do comprehensive Frequency Response curves for each crossover setting FOR MY ROOM. (IMPORTANT). What I found was interesting. For my room, a 50htz crossover works much better than 60 or 80...much flatter response. I experience a little suckout at 100htz, but pretty flat throughout the spectrum until I reach 1000htz. I have a little bit of recess from 1000-3150 but what was really surprising was that after 12,500htz, I have a severe dropoff in output, almost 12db at 16,000htz, and 18db at 20,000. (using 85 as my reference point). I have had numerous people over my house and nobody has claimed my speakers to be bright. I can attribute all the other anomolies in my curve to room/setup problems, but to what do I attribute the high frequency dropoff? Surely, that cannot be 100% due to my room, as I have hardwood floors and plaster walls...characteristics that would make my room live...not dull. Should I be experiencing this kind of curve? I know there will be people out there with difference experiences and YMMV, but I found this response curve to be a little different than what I was expecting...at least at the upper ranges. Makes me want to read more about frequency response and room acoustics. Anybody got any good reads on the subject?
