About 3-way systems
Loudspeaker cabinets can be classified according to various criteria such as size, design or intended use. An important criterion for the sound image of loudspeaker systems is the classification according to the number of paths. This number of paths defines the number of frequency ranges into which the original sound signal is divided before it is output. Each of the sound ranges divided by a special component, the so-called crossover, is reproduced by a driver that is best suited for this proportion.
3 frequency ranges: high, middle and low frequency
The most common form is 3-way loudspeakers with a division into high, medium and low frequencies for floor standing speakers. Thus, drivers of different types and sizes can be built into the loudspeaker cabinet. The simplest approximation is that a driver with a large membrane surface is best able to output the low frequencies while a small membrane surface is best able to handle the high frequencies. A 3-way loudspeaker can reproduce the sound signal with a higher resolution than a 2-way system or a system with only one driver.
3-way speakers offer the best possible sound reproduction
With regard to the best possible sound reproduction even at higher volumes, loudspeaker systems with 3-way signal distribution or sometimes called three-way construction are the first choice.
Teufel also relies on this construction method for many of his standing speakers and some home cinema systems. The entire frequency range is evenly transmitted by 3-way loudspeakers. Thanks to the large volume, rich membrane surface and elaborately designed crossover network, the best possible sound is always guaranteed.
