Agreed.

But the lack of transparency (Ha!) from manufacturers is of concern. A percent here, a percent there, soon we are talking about real sound and money.

As engineering-aware end users in an engineering realm should we not ask these questions?





We should ask these questions in the format being used, that of a discussion. If I used JBL as an example, then who among us has the product knowledge and test equipment available to dispute their design.

I fired up mt SH96HO's without the grills and having no test gear used my ears. Definitely brighter. I wound up turning the tops down 1 db and changing a 6.5k -6 db cut to a 6.2k -9 db cut. I used Alan Parsons Turn of a Friendly card as my test music as I've noticed sibilance in the vocals.  It really came out without the grills.
I'll see how the show goes tonight.

But did it sound better? :)
It probably did, -you would be surprised how much noise comes out of an engine's intake!

I thought the show sounded very good tonight. Didn't have any sibilance and wound up going back to my original settings. I thought that there was a touch more clarity especially in the vocals. Nothing major but I'm leaving the grills off.

I did a show in a nudist park once. Picture a room full of ugly naked people dancing to 60's and 70's Rock and yes, I did leave my grills and clothes on.

I'm so old, when I was doing FOH for Tommy Dorsey, to balance out the horn section I would slide their chairs downstage and upstage to mix!

I'm sure the other people appreciated that kind gesture :)

True! On the track, we could easily tell the Vtec Honda engines by the sound of the (non stock)intake when the cam cam on.
Much more noise than you would expect and gave credit to the quiet design of the stock intake systems.
Missed that with my turbo, non Vtec engine. Nice power but less noise :)

OK here is a picture of my actual air filter from back in the day... It let my 4 barrel breath without letting small animals into the intake system.

Can't say that I heard much carb sound over the exhaust note that tended to be quite a bit louder.

Don't tune your drums half-ass. Listen to what a properly "cleared" drum sounds like.   http://circularscience.com/

i dont use an air filter, i use a "carburator" filter. it filters the carburator out of the engine , it keeps the carburator from going into the engine.
