Just wanted to know if anyone knows the advantages or disadvantages of each...in layman's lingo.
This would be in terms of quantity, quality and tunefulness of the bass produced.
I have heard that TL is more difficult to get right and so possibly more expensive to produce...as well as being drier sounding and possibly less weighty. I have also read this, which I don't know if it's true, and I paraphrase:
"Real world TL speakers like PMC are really quarter-wave TLs, ie. the line length is 1/4 the wavelength of the resonance frequency the bass driver is tuned to.
This means it's nothing but a Bass Reflex variant, that offers no real advantage over a classic Reflex alignment."
So any comments, preferences or insights would be much appreciated.
