Default Why do...

specific cone materials/tweeter compostions "sound better" w/ specific genres of music?

Is it because specific cone materials/tweeter compostions are more sensative to specific genres of music?

How can this be? Are specific genres of music particular to certain frequencies within the spectrum?

I think it has to do with the fact all speakers color the sound, you just need to find the coloring that fits best with what you listen to.

When you use the term "color," do you mean "perception of sound only differs from person to person" ?

So how come threads like "what speakers should I get" get posted all the time. Application & circumstances are two factors that can help a listener choose drivers based on their needs, but that's not the point. What's always brought up is "where are your speakers lacking?" If everyone is particular to their own color, & perceives it differently, then how can one give a response to a question like, "where are your speakers lacking?"

Again, Are specific genres of music particular to certain frequencies within the spectrum? That's the only place I see logic in.

Hell yeah. I have some cheap Pioneer comps right now. They sound pretty decent on rap/dubstep/hip-hop (or any type of music really) music where there's not much between say...100-300hz.

But...they sound awful with the higher bass notes in R&B and Soul music. Any type of bass guitar sounds horrible. But for upper treble, they do pretty good.

EDIT: For example...I have one song with a strong saxophone solo. It sounds pretty good. The female singer's voice also sounds good. But...then the bass guitarist comes in and ruins my illusion of good sound lol. That's why the higher end sets publish frequency response data. So people can read the numbers and make an educated guess when they purchase.

So...my point is...different speakers excel in different areas. That's why one set may sound better for one type of music than another.

the drivers themselves offer a distinct "noise" to the music it plays. Of course different music types excel in different octaves. A classical song and a rap song do not really have much in common. The answer to your third question is not exactly cut and dry but more of an opinion, People do all have different taste, but it's also easy to tell some one what your looking for by describing the attributes your looking for, ie I like smooth natural sounding speakers so I wouldn't exactly run super tweeters in my door.

Different materials have different modes. Basically, the diaphram has a resonance frequency of it's own, and not the resonance between a spider and cone, but the diaphram itself has a resonance of itself. like a cone that bends while moving and effects radiation. It effects higher frequencies more then lower ones.

"different music types EXCEL in DIFFERENT octaves"

^Exactly what I was looking for. Korey, you seem very knowledgeable w/ mobile audio. This is a bit off topic, but I'm throwing together an SQ oriented build & am worried about lack of output from my little JBL GTO8 (fed 2xx-3xx). I see multiple ID 8"s I could get my hands on & possibly blow them through the ski hole in my LGT. Am I going down the wrong direction?

being that wood isn't very expensive. I would first build an enclosure for the single and go from there. I would look into 6th orders or something like that, I tend to not fire forward because it usually peaks higher that way.

T-line a bad idea for the single 8" considering it's a 4 dr sedan?
