Home Speaker Asylum

General speaker questions for audio and home theater.

RE: Tekton Design Double Impact World Class Reference Speakers

Duh. I can feel the wind from the hand waving through my computer. His 'explanation' says nothing. There are questions about design that can be seen and in the specs. And his explanation about mass is simply nonsense. It's not mass but power to weight ratio(otherwise a VW beetle could out accelerate a Bugatti).

But then again the 1st thing a company needs to do is stay in business and all too often it's not what you do but what you say you can do and convince the public of. Just look at the Bose 901. It couldn't even do what Amar claimed it did.

Citing a patent is smart. It implies something new. But patents can be deceiving. A good example is the Dahlquist DQ 10. The patent had nothing to do with the acoustic performance of the speaker. It was the inexpensive way the individual panels were attached to the main box and the 'patent' caused significant ringing at 115 Hz.

I'd love to hear the speaker. If it turns out I'm wrong I'm not against saying so. In fact if it is that good it would be great to have such an advance. I hate making comments like this without an audition but this ad asks for it.
