Are dual woofered / multiple driver speakers better than single?
I've some questions about speakers with multiple / single woofers...
A number of top speakers only have a single woofer and tweeter whereas other designs have multiple woofers / separate bass & midrange.
Do multiple woofers make a difference to the separation of sound and delivery? i.e. do many speakers with multiple woofers output the lower ranges through one woofer and the mid range through the other woofer or do they more often work in tandem?
Can a single woofer and single tweeter really do it all? And do speakers with multiple woofers have more difficulty in producing coherent and unified sound?
PMC Twenty.23s are £2000, have a single woofer and single tweeter, yet create a beautiful soundstage and wonderful musical sound.
Dynaudio Excite X32 are £1800 and have two woofers and a tweeter and once again, are a fantastic sounding speaker.
What have your experiences been and does anyone have any preferences?
I know some of you are going to say 'It's whatever sounds best that counts' which I agree with but I'm wondering if there is any technical superiority or difficulty with one design over another!
