So the setting is mislabeled?

Because unless there's a dynamic range expander, all of the possible reduces dynamic range.

Has anyone noticed the DTS muffling effect on movie soundtracks?




Of course there's a difference; Dolby Enabled has a different freq response.

You can also use a narrow boost just above cutoff to put back the missing Hz, or use a steeper filter which has less attenuation near the knee.

Ply (any kind) is much stronger and quite a bit stiffer.

Also, what's stopping you from Mounting a 12" driver in a 14" high box made from 3/4" material?

That's based on two mistaken assumptions - that you pay full li$t, and that the 7702 has no resale value.

Or one mistaken assumption if you don't currently have a 7702.

Right, so since we need to be practical, it is important.

The purpose of stiffness is to reduce vibration amplitude, and if the panel resonance is in the passband it's increased many times.

I was wondering if the lo$$ I took to go from 7702 to 7702MkII was worth it, but sounds like it will be.

Your argument is a red herring.
