Okay, I admit it’s the skinniest video ever made! But you try to get these speakers in a frame with Axiom’s Andrew Welker, who designed the Omnidirectional LFR1100s together with Ian Colquhoun. Watch the video (filmed in Axiom’s anechoic chamber) or read the transcript below to find out what challenges are faced when you are designing loudspeakers with drivers on the front and rear panels of the speaker.
Andrew: Omnidrectional speakers are probably one of the more challenging types of designs that a loudspeaker designer can undertake. Part of the reason is that you have to deal with a lot of factors in terms of how the speaker interacts with the room, and how the different parts of the speaker interact with one another.Log in
