Are there any detailed measurements/graphs available on these? I'm rather curious about what the reasoning is behind having two mid and two high frequency drivers paired with a single low, when most distortion is in the bass frequencies. What advantages would such a configuration offer over a standard three-way, three-driver setup?
Thanks for the questions!
Like the vast majority of companies out there, we do not provide measurements or graphs for our products.
The reasoning behind having two mid and two high drivers paired with a single low driver is two fold. First of all, the driver used for low frequency response in the Noble 5 is one of the largest (if not the largest) manufactured by Knowles for this purpose. Second, the human ear is extremely poor at localizing low frequencies and therefore additional low frequency drivers do not necessarily result in the same audible refinement as additional mid or high frequency drivers do. In short, since the human ear is very good a localizing mid and high frequencies, more drivers are dedicated to reproducing this part of the spectrum and the result is a more refined sound that you can actually hear.
