three π loudspeaker performance data
Horizontal Off-Axis Response
Vertical Off-Axis Response (down)
Vertical Off-Axis Response (up)
- All measurements were done halfspace, with the speaker resting in a cradle and the microphone suspended above it on a boom.
- No post-processing or smoothing was applied.
- Measurements were taken at a distance of 10 feet from the baffle and drive voltage was 8.62vrms. This is equivalent to 2.83v/M and 1W/1M values since average impedance is 8Ω.
- The loudspeaker was driven with a 60Hz sine at 40vrms to pre-heat for 15 minutes immediately before measurement. This was done to bring it to a realistic operating temperature.
- Off-axis measurements were done at 10° increments. The forward axis was taken as the cabinet centerline, midpoint from top to bottom and side to side. Small vertical angles upward therefore position the microphone closer to the tweeter's forward axis.
