True. To know exactly what a speaker will sound like you need SPL, polar response both vertical and horizontal, THD and waterfall charts. With all of those one can know exactly
how a speaker will sound. The sad fact of the matter is that anyone can create all of those with this, so for a manufacturer not to do so is totally inexcusable:
Actually to know exactly what a speaker will sound like you need to hear it. There are speakers that test great on the bench and sound like crap , and others that don't test well and sound.fantastic . What sounds good to you is different then what sounds good to me. If we all were looking for the same sound then bill could easily build that and we would all not.even need other speaker brands. For the 5% or less that find all the measurements critical for their purchase then tekton is not for them. The only thing inexcusable about tekton is their production times which if they don't improve will put him out of business .
A friend of mine is a professional musician for 30 years. He has heard his music thousands of times. He has a trained ear for the pitch and tone that his guitar and voice has. He came over and listened to his own cd on my oriel 10 and said there were good. Not the best he has heard ,but for the price I paid 850 , very good. I choose to put my review standards in ears , not measurements . I respect that you think differently . If there is not room for sides of this argument then its not a forum. If you want to talk science I know another audio engineer of 35 years who disagrees with your statement that you will know exactly what the speaker will sound like without hearing it.
My profession is teaching . I have taught for 17 years and over those years have taught nearly 5000 students . I teach woodwork to all the kids in my middle school every year. I can design a project on paper ,similar to what I have done before. I can think I have covered every variable . Then when I implement the project it falls flat. It looked great on paper ,but the kids didn't like it. They should have liked it , technically it was perfect.
I am not trying to convince you bill cuz I know I won't . You have stated your case many times and I'm not a.tekton fanboy. I am happy with my.purchase but wouldn't recommend them until he improves his production times. If avs is only about data , and hard science then it doesn't make.much sense why I like ac/dc pumping through my system . A dude screaming who sounds screechy , there songs all sound the same , and its in your face.
I am not going to have a back and forth dialogue arguing my post. I just posted my thoughts for others to read. Agree , disagree , laugh , or dismiss it. Fine with me.
Going to crank a little back in black !
