I am under the impression that cinema (or movie theater) speakers are more about high SPL rather than sound quality. Is this true? If I am wrong, is it true that the only thing stopping someone from using cinema/movie theater speakers is lack of space?

Cinema speakers typically consist of horn loaded designs or in some instances compression drivers. Pro speakers are about effeciency which translates to dynamic range with greater overall spl and a or more focused dispersion of sound which helps fill large rooms/venues.


This topic has been beated to death, and there a few within the first four pages of this sub-forum. Do a search, there are a lot.


One more thing, questions like "what about sound quality" are completely subjective, and impossible to answer. If sound quality to you is " low distortion" with "minimal compression", then they sound fantastic.
