Loudspeaker Production Variance
Numerous quality assurance philosophies have evolved over the last few decades designed to manage manufacturing quality. Managing quality control of production loudspeakers is particularly challenging. Variation of sub-components and assembly processes across loudspeaker driver production batches may lead to excessive variation of sensitivity, bandwidth, frequency response and distortion characteristics etc. As loudspeaker drivers are integrated into production audio systems these variants result in broad performance permutation from system to system that affects all aspects of acoustic balance and spatial attributes. This paper will discuss traditional electro-dynamic loudspeaker production variation.
