In the 60s hippie disco vintage era the was a increasing demand for component high fidelity home music systems has focused attention on loudspeaker enclosures. The enclosure is designed both for appearance and as a component of an acoustical system. A properly designed cabinet however cannot make a poorly designed speaker operate satisfactorily nor can a well designed speaker perform efficiently when housed in an inferior enclosure. The retro disco vintage stereo speakers and the enclosure must be of good design and work together in harmony as one unit. When this is accomplished response of the system is uniform and the efficiency is good down to the very low bass and up to or beyond the highest frequency the ear can hear.
The prime reason for an enclosure or baffle is to separate the sound radiated from the rear of a speaker diaphragm or cone so that it dose not cancel the radiation generated by the front of the cone. A baffle then is a separator that increases the distance between the sources of the front and back of the diaphragm to such dimensions that the wave length of the lowest useful frequency is small in comparison to the distance of separation.
This type of 1960 hippie disco vintage stereo speakers sound cabs were just the ticket to make the Wild psychedelic flower power festivals go with a 60s hippie groovy man swing.
