How to help speakers ‘move air’ more easily

Recommended Posts

Rather than prattle-on, I like to try things out for myself. At least then I know for myself if something works or not - at least for myself.

I bet it wasn’t as riveting as the thread on Dehumidifiers.xD

I found it a little dry.

Apologies. Nopiano got there first on Linn’s Space settings

No need! I couldn’t recall the humidity setting for sure, and wasn’t close to my system to check.  You’ve covered it much better than me.

...and a very important question - does a hifi system sound different at high altitude where the air is thinner? Has anyone taken their system up to the top of Everest to check this out? :shock:

Yes. Then I realised I forgot the effing power lead. 😑

Everything in a room affects the sound..absorption , reflection  , expansion..I have always been an advocate of getting the room right first..sound travels through a space , and what we put in that space will affect it..

No dense objects other than myself of course.

Kindest regards Julian

Sod the garden - we need to go into space. Going to sound much better up there! I have read that music sounds great on the dark side of the moon.

My assumption would be the more humid the air ie the higher the moisture in the air the denser it is....this would affect the speed at which sound moves.  How much this changes the speed of sound etc would be interesting to know ....but I suspect has only a marginal impact.

Correct. Here's a graph from a very quick Google:

Speed-of-sound-vs-temperature-and-relati

Humidity also changes sound absorption:

So from an absorption point of view with a 2 m listens distance ....a change of humidity from 60-90% i.e. A humid summers day could attenuate the sound by      0.2 dB.

 A quick question tho - c is, in physics,  the speed of light - the 1st graph shows c in m/sec ?
