To help a sort of novice out, what do these mean?? I want to better understand what some of the posts here mean (like when someone says the speaker doesn't image very well). After buying a DVD player about a year ago, upgrade fever quickly hit. I moved from 8 year old Polk bookshelfs/ passive sub to 25's to 35's to 800i's, and an old Denon Pro Logic receiver to 1801 to 3802 within about 8 months (yes, lots of sketchy and pseudo-plausible explanations to the wife). I'm 're-listening' to a lot of my music, and I noticed in 2-channel it almost sounds like the center speaker was on, so it made me wonder if this was tied to some of the terms here. (All the Polk material was a big help, too.)
- Which part of the speaker is the voice coil and what does it do?
