Tons of audiophile information is available to discuss on the topics of driver implementation and material choice, but what about the rest of the speaker? Sometimes overlooked, the cabinet and casework can have a huge impact on the overall sound of any given transducer. On this week’s episode of The Occasional Podcast, legendary speaker designer Andrew Jones of MoFi Electronics (and KEF/TAD/Pioneer fame) shares his viewpoint on the subject.
Andrew covers off on material choice, damping, overall size, bass and more in the episode. There is a ton of good detail available for those who really want to dive deep into the idea of speaker cabinet design.
