What makes a speaker THX-certified?
A guy a THX........... http://www.thx.com/mod/products/homeTheatre.html
dbl post much!!??!
The irony of it all is that at Skywalker ranch, the THX guru George Lucas has "un-certified" B&W Nautilus speakers for soundtrack mixing. What does that tell you about the importance of THX?
Money......makes it THX...
THe logitech speakers that are THX make me laugh.. they sound like ass warmed over...
re: the logitechs comment... WOW... so mean... but yet so funny!!
hehe I try. They may work for Quake3 but for any music..... ahhhhh *stabs ears with Q-Tips*
In answer to the actual question, I believe the THX standards call for a specific rolloff in the lower frequency response, so the crossover slope of the sub and speakers will match. What this does to the sound quality is anyone's guess (and I'm only relating what I read a few months ago, so the details may be a bit off).
THX certified anything is a joke IMO. But to each his own. Funny story: A friend of mine who knows absolutely nothing about HT gear recently bought a house and wanted to hook up an older receiver to his TV and a pair of Infinities he had. Without calling me he went down to Circuit City and showed them the receiver and asked what he needed to get everything hooked up (DVD, TV, VCR). So guess what the sales guys gets him to buy? All THX certified cables!!!!!!! He shelled out some decent money to hook up a very outdated receiver (not even 5.1). Amazing!!!!!! We'll he bought a new 36" TV and he has been having problems with is video dropping out......long story short here but the problem ended up being those THX cables he got from CC. The S-Video one was bad!!!!! I know it could happen to any cable but it was just too funny because it was an over-priced over-hyped THX "certified" cable!
