In light of the SVS vs. Velodyne debate currently raging I was wondering about the meaning of speaker accuracy. Would a speaker that is 100% accurate have a "test tone" straight line response across all frequencies? Realizing that in the real world, room characteristics and speaker placement will greatly impact speaker performance and speaker preference is very subjective, our particular passion for one piece of HT gear or another is ultimately based upon personal preference (however misguided or unscientific). Speakers which look very good on paper may not "sound" as good as others that may be less "accurate". Specs are helpful but not the be-all-end-all. Both SVS and Velodyne have very good "numbers". Each has a different approach to the same end. And I love my SVS 20-39CS (with upgraded driver).
