Re: free-field speaker

IN this context, how free field is free field? do you need highly specific control (or at least, measurability) of dispersion patterns?

also, is it a near field application? - the tiny Genelecs are good for this, the (cheaper alternative) KRKs are good. What kind of dynamic range?

Genelec makes a great line of powered loudspeakers that are well suited for laboratory use.  They are line level input, so you can drive them directly from a high quality sound card and are very accurate, loud, easy to use and virtually indestructible.  The downside is, of course, they can be expensive depending on your requirements (anywhere from US$369 to $5639 each).


Hope this helps.

Hi all,

Does anyone have any recommendations for a free-field speaker [range: 0.5kHz - 15kHz]?
