Cheap Thrills-12 Measurements

Full measurements of the Cheap Thrills-12 Speaker Kit from DIYSG


The following measurements were performed on my 10' tall outdoor turntable. Measurements were taken at 2.83v / 2M just below the tweeter axis and scaled up 6dB to approximate 2.83v/1M level.

Measurements are gated at 14ms and blended to the diffraction adjusted nearfield woofer response below 200hz. Smoothing applied is 1/48th octave.

Cheap Thrills-12 Harmonic Distortion - 85, 95, 100 & 105dB / 1m

Note: I think the weird spike seen around 250 Hz may have been the stand I was using for these distortion tests resonating slightly. Possibly the same source for the ripple seen in the compression graphs around the same frequencies as it's the same measurement setup.
