Integral M6 mounting points
Amplitude Matching of LSR6312SP with
When the LSR6312SP and LSR6328P are positioned
on the same plane, the −6 dB transition between them
is in-phase, producing flat response over that region,
as shown in Figure 25. However, in many installations
the subwoofer cannot be placed in such an
advantageous position, and the user often has to
change polarity on the subwoofer in order to achieve
the best match at the crossover frequency.

and LSR6328P.
Second and third harmonic distortion of the
LSR6312SP is shown in Figure 26 for an operating
level of 96 dB measured at a distance of 1 meter. The
distortion at 40 Hz is about 8%. With normal positioning
of the subwoofer along a baseboard, the drive level
required to reach 96 dB at that frequency would be
much less than that used for this example, resulting in
even less distortion.
