Home Speaker Asylum

General speaker questions for audio and home theater.

Just realized the effect of bass on clarity

If a small speaker can't do bass it will do one of two things:
a) pump out a lot of harmonic distortion smearing the midrange
b) attenuate the bass to a point where the music sounds unnatural and midrange timbres are wrong
c) A little of both
Old news I know, and an argument for subwoofers for those who cannot afford good floor-standers or are in love with speakers that can't do bass.

It's never too late to turn back the clock.
