don't have a ton of time to elaborate - but briefly
clinical = squeeky clean or accurate
coming from a guitar background, and hanging out with my buddy for years
at his used and vintage guitar shop in hollywood, I've heard and played though several different speakers, on paper, that all do basically the same thing, power wise, but sound worlds different, why?
for a guitar, the alnico blue would be the best of the best in tone but no high output, so you would need multiples, celestion are the standard, but why do the 75w vintage sound so bad when the 70/80 sound so good?, then the greenbacks or vintage 30's sound fairly warm. but still being ceramic magnets, not as good as a "red fang", or modern blue/gold hybrid. After much of this hunt, eminence has addressed the situation, by investing in infrastructure and expanding voicing options with 20+ model as to compete with themselves.
what your putting them in has a lot to do with what you need the speaker to do
long and short, any speaker has a voicing quality
any space has a resonating factor
I find the polks "accurate" -
hawg wired also accurate, but more EQ'd sounding
I guess that's where they get you on price for quality
black ZX have the same basket design as a set of eminence 12" speakers I just got so maybe the new hawg wired are manufacturered in eminence china, not sure
but that alone wouldn't make me mad, i live near eminence kentucky
I've heard some $25k tube amp setups based around $2400 worth of eminence 15's - which were real decent
just stating, an impression, or general gut feeling
accurate is good, I'd just venture to say throw a little ballsy in there too through EQ or otherwise
