RE: Best Speakers

So hang on, just to get this clear: this is a troll thread started by a user who has never returned to it, jumped on by the AVI crowd, hijacked by another speaker manufacturer for self-publicity, and now being reclaimed by the 'hey hey the gang's all here' AVI crowd again, weighing in mobhanded almost as though guided by a higher power.

Forums, doncha just love 'em?

Someone who sets up a thread and then vanishes is a pretty good definition.

What's your definition of a puppet? (Hint: if you're not sure, I am confident Dad will phone you soon with some insight)

Almost. Started by an AVI cult member under a new name for the real cult member to post advertising photos. The rest is right, though hijacked almost seems an understatement. It's now being reclaimed by the AVI cult as it's Thursday night. No doubt the cult meeting this morning was devoted to it. Maybe it's pure coincidence that they reclaimed it on a Thursday, or maybe not? Guided by a higher power? The Rev Ashley Myung Moon? Who knows? Whatever, I don't trust either of them.

As far as a can tell (I'm no expert) but those pages only seem to describe what you claim your speaker can do but it doesn't explain how they actually manage to achieve it.

 

Jon, would you mind expanding on that description a bit and explain in more detail exactly how your speakers actually work. Thanks. (I apologise if I've misunderstood something in your original description due to my lack of knowlege regarding speaker designs).

Of course I will. Cuz, u kno what? I dont go to dentists anymore. I know how to use a drill and a tub of pollyfil. And Farmers? Bollox. Anyone can put seed in the ground and, like, wait a bit. 

Ask a politician how do they do what they do and actually SLEEP at night.

How do you do what you do?

"Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence"

Quote from Carl Sagan (astronomer, astrophysicist and cosmologist).

 

No one else has ever managed to produce a high output at 16Hz from a small 6.5" speaker and yet you claim that you are able to. It's hardly surprising that people in this thread are sceptical of this claim, especially as you've presented yourself in such an unusual manner as you have.

 

Can you explain how your speakers manage to reproduce such a high output at 16Hz from a 6.5" driver?

Unfortunately though, RS, no more valid , or substantial, than any of his other rather useless posts.   

 

He doesn't do this forum any credit.

Woops, wrong post.

One possible reason would be that the insides of the cabinets of the Alacrity speakers are acting as a Helmholtz resonator. IE similar to someone blowing across the top of a bottle. Topped up with a bit of room reinforcement. Such a design could work really well with sine waves. Less likely to work well with transients. But of course, the proof of the pudding is in the listening, especially in a comparative demo.

 

Until I hear them I've got an open mind on the Alacrity speakers.

I'm open minded while being sceptical at the same time. Hopfully Jon's claims are true as it could potentially revolutionize the speaker industry. I think you'll understand if I don't buy any shares in Alacrity speakers just yet though.

 

I suggest that if/when anyone demos his speakers that they take a recording of sine waves at various different frequencies. It'd be very interesting to know if they really can cleanly reproduce sounds down to 16Hz.

RE: Best Speakers

Apparently subwoofers already use the principles of the  helmholtz resonator. Anyone know exactly how that works?
