H speaker is a top-of-the-line loudspeaker designed for medium sized venues. Its innovative Minimum Reflection design drastically reduces sound wave reflections that can color sound and lead to distortion and poor audio performance.
Frequency Response – Measured in Hertz (Hz), this indicates how accurately a speaker converts an input signal to its output frequency. A standard range is 20 Hz to 20 kHz, or “Cycles per Second.”
Sensitivity (measured in decibels) – This rating indicates the loudness a speaker will produce when fed an input of 1 watt. Manufacturers commonly use this rating as it gives an idea of how much power a speaker is capable of handling without damaging itself or overheating.
Maximum Sound Pressure Level (MSPL) – This is the maximum output a speaker can handle without damaging itself or exceeding a specified level of distortion. More important than just peak power rating, MSPL tells you how loud a speaker will become over time with input power you are comfortable providing it.
Xmax (Maximum Linear Excursion) – This metric indicates the maximum distance a voice coil can travel in the magnetic gap before distortion occurs. It’s more relevant than BL specs since they take into account suspension effects which could add nonlinearity.
It’s more precise than a dB spec, since it takes into account distortion – which may be more critical in some applications than frequency accuracy. Thus, THD+ is an invaluable metric when selecting a transducer.
