How loud is it – when we turn up the volume, to really enjoy that physical bass and get the live experience. In plain, objective dB numbers – how loud.

We know loudspeakers sound different, we also know they can measure different – both in the lab, and in-room. But what if they seem to measure quite similar – and still sound very different. Is there something hidden in those measurements, that we missed?

Measuring more than one speaker and getting predictable and usable results can be challenging.
Using pink noise and a real-time analyzer makes it easy to check level and frequency response, and you can move the mic around to measure at different locations and still get meaningful observations.
