Beyond it’s the closer one to my ear, maybe a foot and a half (2foot at most) away.
Two-way, or coaxial, designs reproduce your music’s frequency range accurately. These speakers use a separate tweeter — mounted inside the woofer — to deliver the high-frequencies.
Three-way, or triaxial, speakers take the separate woofer and tweeter from a two-way design and add a midrange driver for enhanced warmth and texture. Select three-ways use a supertweeter, instead of a midrange, for extended high-frequency response. Four-ways combine a woofer, a midrange, a tweeter, and a supertweeter for even more detail.
Component systems, or separates, use a superior speaker design to give you the best possible sound. A typical separates system includes 2 woofers, 2 tweeters, and 2 external crossovers — all of which are designed to work smoothly with one another.
Generally, components are made of better materials than their two- or three-way counterparts. You can position the separate tweeters for optimal imaging. Given adequate power, separates deliver exceptional dynamics and detail.
A network of filters, made up of coils and capacitors, that directs specific frequency ranges to the appropriate speaker components (woofer, midrange, and tweeter, for instance). That way, the drivers do not strain to reproduce notes out of their intended range.
Component systems and full-range speakers include passive crossovers, which are designed for the specific components and mounted between the amplifier and speakers. Active crossovers divide the frequency range before amplification, and can be adjusted to adapt to any speaker setup.
Or should I simply discard what seemed to be a rather well respected retailer in favor of your word because their definitions don’t match with yours?
I want easy and good, but when no one seems to be sending me in different fucking directions, SHIT GETS MORE CONFUSING. If you wanna get pissy that I’m pushing back by pointing this issue out, then go right the fuck ahead and leave the conversation.
