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.

Kenjit:

“I am the best. I am the finest speaker engineer. I am the champion.

Your discriminatory behavior towards me is nothing but sour grapes. 

You have nothing to say about my technology which is why you resort to verbal use.”


My response:

“The problem is you have nothing to patent. That’s how I know you are no “speaker engineer!”

I have 3 degrees: BS and MS in electrical engineering and BS Mechanical Engineering. I designed for Polk Audio 1988-1997 and Klipsch from 1997-2007. I lead the design of Polk’s in wall series, automotive and designed the Bass coupling for the RTA tower series.

For Klipsch I designed the Chebychev-Butterworth compromise alignment filters for the bandoass and highpass for all lines at the time.

You don’t just go to ScanSpeak for custom TS parameters, as you say, UNLESS you have a specific order for 1000 or more units. 


If you were really a “speaker engineer”, you would also know how to modify drivers to achieve TS parameters useful to control your loading. 

I’m personally responsible for the sale of over 30,000 units for Polk and over 18,000 units for  
Klipsch.

You are just a DIY conman who only thinks he knows something. 

The only thing you can patent with your inwall use of drivers is a very specific alignment that you must prove is unique to your control of driver specifications. You can’t do that; you don’t even know what I’m talking about.

You can’t patent a box, either. You can’t patent IB. You can patent the creation of an alignment, using free air, or a box/TL/labyrinth/Port-weighting or some other specific effect. 

I will copy and paste this response onto AG for all to see. 

You’re a phony wanna be.”

Well, it is good to know that he makes friends and influences people elsewhere too ...
Might the same thing apply to musical instruments themselves? What about all the string instruments in an orchestra mounted on a wall the openings over holes to the outdoors and the musicians having to use mirrors to see the conductor and relearn how to play without holding the violins on their shoulders? I too gave up box speakers because they are such an expensive way to get it close to right but my preference fot magnetic planar speakers is not the one and only true faith.
Audiogon is a perfect place for Kenjit as he riles up all those who believe in pseudo science and voodoo audio. I am quit certain he is highly amused at how the golden ears wax eloquently on all his shortcomings while failing to see the outrageously funny responses he gets from people who swear by their nonsense. You can pick him out by the nature of his post titles without seeing who the author is beforehand and the $60,000 audio cable gurus will not be far behind.
