give me a break Ivan ... EAW's 2001 sensitivity is quoted 95 dB W/m your brochure says the DBH is 117 dB, but if you look at your frequency response graph its more like 110 dB minus 6 dB for 1/2 space less another 6 for the 1 watt one meter figure, that's 98 dB average 30hz to 80Hz ... so the DBH is more like 3 dB louder than the EAW in use, which is about what I would expect ... and because it a horn it will be more accurate... and that's exactly what Caleb described Don't get me wrong, I'm sure its a great box and I would be proud to own some.
When EITHER one is in half space (such as standing on the ground -most people don't float in the air) you get the additional gain of half space loading. But you don't get it twice if both the listener and speaker are on the ground.
I don't think that's right. If that was true, a subwoofer in the air would give the same impact/SPL to people on the ground as the same subwoofer on the ground to people on the ground. That's not the case. And if you think a bit further, your statement would mean that a subwoofer placed in the corner of a room would give the same SPL 20m away on any point in the room, no matter if the listener is on the floor, in 3m height in mid air far away from any wall or even standing in the corner. Anyone can debunk this one very easily at home, right?Of course that's just my opinion, but I think we get a double gain by placing subs and people on the ground.
This thread wandered off in the wrong direction...
