Demo (Comparison Video)
As you know, we’ve been wrestling with the comparison video for way too long.
This isn't the most exciting video we've made, our intention has been to simply provide information to backers. In the end we abandoned complicated set-ups and decided to go for a simple, static set-up and use readily available audio measurement tools which everyone has access to and can use themselves at home.
We are using the ‘SPL Pro Digital Sound Level Meter’ from Studio 6 Digital’s app ‘Audio Tools’. This accurately measures max dB, as well as current dB. This was measured at a distance of 1 metre.
We recorded our demo with a Rode VideoMic Rycote, and a Canon EOS 550D video camera.
In this demo we are comparing the FS-X stereo set, the JBL Charge2, and the Bose Soundlink Mini.
In this video we’ve used 5 tracks from alternate genres, at full volume to demonstrate the max SPL on all 3 speakers. Notice how the FS-X masters high level sound with no distortion.
Thank you Danny Dierickx & bsl100 for your music suggestions, some of which we’ve used in our demo.
Please use headphones whilst listening to the demo.
Here’s a table and a graph highlighting the max SPL achieved from all 3 speakers, on all 5 songs from the demo video. All values represent max SPL in dB.
Remember, although the FS-X achieved the highest dB (109.2 at 1 metre), it’s not all about the ‘boom boom’! Notice how well the FS-X performs in terms of sound quality at high volumes.
A mono FS-X's max SPL in comparison to a FS-X stereo set is 3 dB less.
As always thanks for your support. Our next update will be no longer than a week from now, Wednesday 29th April.
In regards to shipping, the final units have gone into pre-production and we are expecting to receive some solid dates shortly. Again, we are sorry that we’ve had to push back our projections, we’re doing our very best in these final stages and we will be sending the products to you as soon as possible.
All the best,
The Frankenspiel Team
