2 way vs 3 way speakers
2 way vs 3 way speakers - which is better?
So what is a component speaker system? In most cases, it is a 16.5 cm midbass, as well as some kind of tweeter or tweeter, in some cases, a wide-range speaker that plays in tandem with the midbass in the front of the car.
When setting up processor head units, there is often confusion in terms - what do 2-WAY and 3-WAY modes mean? Not to be mistaken, let's look at how they work.
Traditionally, it so happened that when they talk about the bandwidth of an audio system, they most often mean the main acoustics. For example, a two-way front plus a subwoofer. Or a three-way front plus a subwoofer. As you can see, the subwoofer always goes “plus one”, and is usually not taken into account in the number of audio system bands.
This causes confusion in terms. Without understanding, many believe that the 2-WAY mode is for connecting two-way acoustics, and 3-WAY is for three-way, like explained here 2 way vs 3 way speakers.
In fact, in the head unit, we are dealing with the total number of bands into which the audio signal is generally divided. So 2-WAY is the division of the signal into two components - front / rear acoustics and a subwoofer. And 3-WAY is a division into three components: tweeters, mid-bass speakers and a subwoofer.
So be careful when setting up and remember - the 2-WAY mode is the classic “front / rear + subwoofer” system, and the 3-WAY mode is the “tweeters + mid-bass speakers + subwoofer” channel.
What is a 2-way or 3-way speaker system
So what is a component speaker system? In most cases, it is a 16.5 cm midbass, as well as some kind of tweeter or tweeter, in some cases, a wide-range speaker that plays in tandem with the midbass in the front of the car. Our midbass reproduces part of the low frequencies and mids. Our tweeter reproduces part of the mid frequencies, as well as high frequencies.
If we are talking about a 3-way speaker system, then to help us with our two speakers, a mid-range speaker is added, which can be a cone, or a doll-type speaker. Let's talk about their difference below.
To begin with, it is worth talking about what advantages 3-component acoustics has.
- firstly, she can play louder.
- with the help of 3-component acoustics, it is possible to build a more correct playing music scene in our car.
- the third important point is that each speaker, as part of a 3-way system, reproduces a narrower frequency range than if it were a 2-component speaker system. Therefore, each speaker reproduces this frequency a little or even a lot, but better. And 3-component acoustics with a competent approach plays better by itself.
