One question that several of you have asked pertains to designing an in-wall speaker: how does it differ from designing a regular speaker? What factors do you have to take into account when you’re engineering it?
I caught up with Andrew Welker in our anechoic chamber (this time we put the floor in so I could turn the camera around!) and asked him about his strategy. Log in

The Angled Back on the LFR Speaker
Another thing has had my curiousity piqued about the LFR1100 omnidirectional speaker . . . what’s with the angled backs? Granted, the angle is slight, but the rest of our speakers have straight backs. What gives?
I tracked (okay, hunted) Andrew Welker down and asked him the question. His reply:

(The front section, by contrast, has a high proportion of direct signal pointing directly at the listening area). So we’re relying on reflections off boundaries for the sound, and for the most part boundaries mean a back wall. Log in
