Now we view approximate reasons of forming of prices of speakers.
It's not hard rule of course. For different countries the ranges of prices is variate. But we can see some trend.
For enforcing any speakers sound equally we can correct Amplitude-Frequency and Phase characteristics by equalizer.
But we cant exactly correct this characteristics.
We remember also: these characteristics is various for different points of listening room.

Here I will tell about selecting of loudspeakers. Always say that the last criterion of assessment of quality - human ear. We will consider: whether so it.
If say exactly, quality of sound very accurately described by specification (numbers and diagrams).
Why then: last criterion of assessment of quality - human ear?
Manufacturer don't give all diagrams. Often it is technically impossible (it is too much measurements).
For most people (non-audiotechnics-specialist)

While visiting a friend in The Big Smoke recently, I had an opportunity to assist in tuning a set of DIY speakers to his critical listening environment. This is a walkthrough of what we did, how it sounded, and lessons learned. I tried to present this in a step by step format so if desired, by following the same steps, you could obtain similar results. Here is pic of my friendís rig:

If you have followed this series on a quest for proper timbre, I have reached a conclusion. From wikipedia, in psychoacoustics, timbre is also called tone quality and tone color. No question, music source, electronics, interconnects, power, etc., all have impact on timbre. However, the biggest factor on reproducing proper timbre, by orders of magnitude, is the speaker to room interface which is limited by small room acoustics: http://www.gcmstudio.com/acoustics/acoustics.html

I love music, any kind of music really. As a former recording/mixing engineer/producer for 8 years, and lifetime audio freak, I had the privilege to record, mix, and master a wide variety of music. In this introductory post, we will look at the most important quality of reproducing music called, "timbre". Over a series of posts, the goal is to calibrate your sound system to be the most accurate reproducer of music for your ultimate listening pleasure :-)
In Wikipediaís definition of timbre,
