Sonnar Posted May 29, 2016 Report Share Posted May 29, 2016 I suspect the theory according to which a speaker with better dispersion should sound making clear mid-high frequencies it does not match what we perceive. If it were so, an AR LST or an AR 3a should sound much more sparkling than a JBL L 65 Jubal : the 077 high frequency compression driver has a very poor dispersion , but the Jubal , a speaker I know very well, sounds much more sparkling , too much sparkling , and with high frequencies very present , in the foreground. I have often found that a speaker sounds exactly as revealed by its frequency response in anechoic chamber , in axis. Maybe I 'm wrong , but this is the reason why some people like me prefers the smooth and balanced sound of AR speakers and some people prefers the unbalanced , sparkling and rich in high frequencies sound of West Coast speakers , which have very little dispersion.
