Okay, still trying to understand, if you cannot hear a speaker "live"...what are the best criteria to rate a speaker based on look, size and specifications.


1. Drivers, quality and size of drivers

2. Electronics

3. Cabinet design

4. Monster speaker cables (sarcasm, sorry could resist)


I won't even list specification, since 1-3 go into how a speaker performs, but of course the specs are often not very accurate or informative in the right way (unless done by third party).


You guys/gals with a lot of experience with speakers, speaker design and maybe even have built your own speakers, please post your thoughts here.

Its kind of like asking what makes a great car. The answers for me may not be the same as for the next guy. # cylinders? Horsepower? top speed? torque curve? The matter is 100% subjective so its near impossible to answer. It may be easier to list what can compromise a speaker. Cheap cabinet materials, paper tweeters, ect.
