Surround Sound System Review and Measurements: “Why do Measurements Matter?”

If your goal is to get the highest performance surround sound system review data then you have come to the right place.

The truth is; at this price point speaker manufacturers just don’t bother to publish their speaker measurements and data.

Why?

My guess is that the measurements may be too embarraMini-cube-speakers-front-Fountek-FR88-EX-speaker-driversssing to publish.

Or; they think that you don’t care.

Or; that measurements don’t matter to the final outcome and sound of a given design.

Whatever their reasons are for not providing measurements I think you deserve to know how much thought was put into the surround sound speakers design.

Here we show the measurement data for the Mini Cube Speakers so you can decide for yourself.

Music and movies will come to life right in front of You

You really can hear the difference between expensive low distortion parts and low quality ones.

The proof is in the measurements;

This surround sound system review and measurement data (for the above graph) is available at www.zaphaudio.com.

Notice the spike at 12k in the unfiltered response. See that this spike is missing in the top graph above that was measured in room. *This is a raw driver measurement used for this surround sound system review purpose only (and thus completely unfiltered).

This is the distortion plot from www.zaphaudio.com; Shows harmonic distortion of the raw driver. Very, very good distortion plots; especially from 150hz to 20khz where these speakers will be used in the home.

Excellent Measured Response Overall:

“These measurements indicate a quality speaker system far higher in cost than the asking price.”

All of these measurements with exception of the Zaph audio data was taken in room at the listening position.

Meaning; all room boundary effects are taken into account (which generally make the measurements worse). However, the response is still very smooth, which makes these speakers all the more incredible.

These are excellent measurements and we believe them to be “incredible considering the price and the size”.

Updated 8/03/2011: We’ve dramatically improved the box structure

We now use Birch Ply enclosures on all Mini Cubes. This is a significant upgrade to the old MDF enclosure model. Our price has gone up slightly as a result, but performance is well worth the extra investment. There is nothing else on the market built like these speakers at even 5 times the price. The sound is incredible.
