Why all speakers are imperfect


In this post you will learn why all speakers are wrong. There are many speakers out there but the truth is they all suffer from the same problems so manufacturers have to keep inventing new excuses to pretend that they have made advances in driver technology, cabinetry etc

Now as open baffle die hards know, the problem with box speakers is the box itself. 

The problem people dont understand is that the box is there only so that the product is easy to ship and easy to place in your room. It is a severe compromise when it comes to sound quality. 

So the real answer to perfect sound is not a box but a dividing wall. The drivers would be placed on one side of the wall and the wall would prevent interference of the sound from the two sides. The wall would be built so that one side is where you would sit and listen and the other side would be the outdoors. There would be no pesky back pressure and you would get glorious sound. 

Now this is clearly a superior and probably cheaper solution than buying a flagship magico. Think about how much a flagship magico might cost. For that money this could easily be done and it would be superior with no baffle step loss. 

Now as a speaker engineer, i can confirm that there is simply not a great deal of difference between drivers. I have compared dirt cheap with state of art. A set of illuminators would EASILY satisfy even the most fussy audiophiles. The rest is just a question of custom tuning the crossover which is not hard. 

So folks, the speaker industry is not what you think it is. My proposal would exceed the sound quality of the most expensive Magicos, Wilsons, YG, you name it. The cabinet is the real culprit not the drivers when it comes to the secret to perfect sound. 

Now if you want mediocre sound and enjoy being on the merry go round then you are free to buy b&w, atc, wilson, etc all the usual suspects. 

I believe that perfect sound is attainable NOW. The real problem is that audiophiles who have spent considerable money on speakers are too embarrassed to realize that they have wasted their money on an inferior solution. These people are so stubborn that they will continue on the same journey, buying and selling speakers every few years and never achieving perfect sound.  They will sneer at my proposal because they cannot imagine how such a simple solution could outdo the advanced 
state of the art technology used by the likes of Magico. 

I believe I am the only person within the audiophile community bar none that has the capability to understand what perfect sound is and why it is so difficult to achieve. 
I have heard some of the best the world has to offer and i can confirm that they have got it all wrong. 

Wake up and smell the coffee folks. Box speakers are wrong.

Maybe I misunderstood but the back of the speaker driver is outdoors? Rain, snow, ice, bird crap? 
So how do you solve the problem of rain, snow, ice and bird crap without creating this back pressure? You can't  enclose it?
What keeps the squirrels and field mice from making nests in the speaker? Or raccoons from eating them? I don't  know about having speakers open to the elements and building an anechoic chamber might be more than the 200K indoor speaker.

It's hard enough keeping squirrels out of your attic much less the back of your speakers. Having the back of your speaker open to the outdoors is like putting a vacancy sign out for them. 
Actually  it would be exactly the kind of place squirrels would look for. Even if this idea worked and created the best sounding speakers ever created I doubt you  could convince HOA's and zoning boards to approve. I can imagine the farts older than me in mine yelling THOSE THINGS IN THE SIDE OF YOUR HOUSE ARE AN EYESORE!
My next move will probably be to an assisted living facility. 
I believe  my response rose to the level of seriousness that the original post called for. Squirrels in your outdoor speaker could be a very serious problem not to mention if these speakers caused animals such as squirrels,  mice, cats, birds and others that occupy our habit to become deaf as the inventor you will be held liable in a class action lawsuit. 
This guy is hilarious. Who but a complete nutjob or troll playing around would come up with the idea of knocking holes in your wall to the outdoors and sticking speakers in it. Still haven't figured  out how to keep the squirrels from putting their nuts in your speaker.
This guy took Spectors Wall of Sound seriously. 
Have you ever considered zoloft as a managment tool?
Only metal screen can keep squirrels out and the metal interferes with the magnet causing a collapsed sound stage. Why would I  knock  holes in my wall put speakers in then ruin them by wrapping  metal wire around them. No won't  work the squirrel problem needs to be addressed before this project can take off. 
LOL Thanks for the levity this morning. 
Or in a few hundred years humans will be living in a dystopian Mad Max world and while scrounging through the rubble they find an old coffin box speaker and they say remember how The Kenjit told us about Perfect sound? This must be the perfect sound of Kenjit so we will call these boxes of sounds Kenjit boxes to honor his genius.
I got 🐿🐿🐿🐿 in my speakers !!
