A successful loudspeaker design requires far more than merely following the well established path of other manufacturers, trends, or “by the book” solutions. Loudspeaker design is a multi-faceted discipline with a host of critical interdependencies. Each of the different design elements that must be addressed in a loudspeaker can be thought of as a bell shaped curve, where maximum performance for that design element is at the apex of the curve. A truly great design requires simultaneous optimization of all the different curves, as well as an artful integration of these design elements.
