    Hello everyone,

    1st things 1st. I really like this forum. I've been lurking here for a while and have learned a lot. There are some very knowledgeable people posting here.

    Now on to my questions...

    I’ve noticed that many people interested in subs look at the THD vs. Db vs. Freq measurements. Even if they are only anechoic measurements, they are still somewhat useful.

    I'm just wondering...Why (for the most part) other speakers aren't measured that way? Are THD vs. Db vs. Freq measurements less useful for speakers other that subs? If so, why? If not, should we (the consumers) start requesting more of these measurements?

    Please let me know what you think.

    Thanks,
    P_B

    That sort of measurement is just as useful for speakers, but it's a shame that most manufacturers and reviewers don't do it. Also, many speakers produce lots of distortion. [​IMG]

    To find some good distortion measurements you can check http://www.soundstagemagazine.com/speakermeasurements/
