An interesting note back on topic, I recently heard Josh's free time for testing is already full into Sept-Oct. The reality is it won't be practical for every product to be tested by Josh when it's...

I mentioned that as one example that could have been confused, but if you're referring to Ilkka's request, that was back in 07-08 (7-8 years ago) when the SubMersive production was still very new, I...

More often than not, smaller rooms have the first modes at higher frequencies. Higher order modes in the room are multiples of this along with more complex tangential modes that aren't as strong. ...

I should add that I was being very conservative in just stating 4 dimensions to quantify for speakers. In reality it's more like 6 dimensions with the space and time domain expanded to the spectrum...

This is a passive speaker so for the most part at low frequencies you only "put 6dB back" by taking it away from the rest of the range, which would reduce the sensitivity of the speaker by ~6dB,...
