Tweeters produce the highest frequencies in sound, typically anything above 2,000 Hz. Usually located at the top of the speaker, tweeters come in different shapes (detailed below) and sizes. Generally speaking, the size of the tweeter is not as important as the shape. But, for some guidance, consider that a larger tweeter (measured by diameter in inches or millimeters) will likely be louder and able to disperse sound over a larger area.

Speakers with midrange drivers (i.e., at least three-way speakers) have a distinct advantage over two-way speakers. Adding a midrange driver to the mix allows tweeters and woofers to focus on the sound waves they’re best equipped to produce—high tones and low tones respectively. More specific and focused drivers means more accurate, robust sound. Compared to the other drivers, midranges cover sounds, not surprisingly, in the middle of high/treble and low/bass tones. The human voice and most instruments fall into this range. For more sophisticated listeners, or for those who truly want the best sound reproduction, a midrange driver is crucial.

The woofer is the driver that is responsible for low frequency sounds and bass - crucial for well-rounded, booming sound. It is the biggest driver in size, and is usually shaped like a cone. When reviewing different bookshelf speakers, you will often see a measurement in the product name, starting as low as 4” and ranging to 6 ½” or more. This measurement refers to the diameter of the woofer. A general rule of thumb is a bigger woofer means louder, more powerful bass. But, as with any speaker metric, this number alone doesn’t describe the loudness of the speaker and should be taken into consideration with other measurements such as sensitivity, which describes the loudness of a speaker per watt.

Woofer Material Woofers are built with a variety of materials, such as paper, plastic, polypropylene, Kevlar, or metal. Some are even made with more unique materials like wood. They key to quality in a woofer materia ... Show more

I have a HK 430 Dual receiver (now in the shop), which I hope to use with a nice pair of book shelf speakers. I also may use these for main front speakers in a 5.1 surround with a Yamaha RX-V671. Currently, I have some older small KEF UniQ 50 towers that I have really enjoyed. I may use then for rear speakers. Would the
KEF Q300 be a good pick? (currently $400)

I'm confused about the various Def Tech speaker lines (Procinema, 9000 series, Mythos). Drivers appear to be similar and main differences, other than cost, seem to be esthetics. I own a Procinema 600 series today and it seems ok to good. I'm considering a new home with larger listening area and am looking for audio system upgrade. Budget ? Maybe $3k but that's just a #. If $2k Proc 1000 will do the trick, that's fine. Music + tv + movies 3000 ft3 of space to fill.. Big screen tv, 65". Will I notice a significant difference with the $3k Mythos or the $2k 9000 series ?

What would be a good pair of speakers for a Pioneer SX-303 receiver (I think it is 45 watts per channel)? I am thinking about Klipsch R14-M
