Home Speaker Asylum

General speaker questions for audio and home theater.

RE: Those darn measurements !

It has only been fairly recently that consumers have easy access to a good set of speaker measurements such as the old Audio magazine, Stereophile and Soundstage present. I would not bother to seek out a speaker I thought measured badly, though I might listen to one if I came across one. I use measurements as a screening tool. If you don't like it, use some other method. One thing I can say is I don't change speakers very often.

Before somebody jumps on this, I will add that I audition speakers extensively with a variety of program material. The ones that measure really well have always sounded good.

I should also point out that good and bad are ends of a spectrum, both for measurements and sudition results.
