Home Speaker Asylum

General speaker questions for audio and home theater.

RE: Upgraded from B&W 805 Matrix to 802 Matrix S3, and have some questions...

The solid black line is the impedance curve of the N802D, which is similar to the 802 Matrix S3. It looks like a roller coaster to me.


Here is the actual impedance curve of the 802 Matrix S3 from a review by Ken Rockwell. The green line is impedance and the yellow line is phase.



I prefer a flatter impedance curve. My Thiel CS3.7 speakers have an impedance curve that is very flat at 3-ohms +/-0.5-ohms from 60-Hz to 24-kHz.
