The Advantages of Aperiodic Cabinet Loading
Aperiodic simply in speaker terms, "without resonance." Both reflex loading and closed box speakers are normally full of resonance. One problem associated with this resonance is that the system continues to produces sound after the music has stopped. At its worst, the bass takes on a boomy quality, but even when controlled, this resonance can still blur the clarity of the low end, making instruments sound unnatural and indistinct. Aperiodic loading overcomes this problem while still allowing for the port to extend the low end of the speaker. It replaces the resonance of the reflex loaded cabinet with a much simpler solution where no resonance is encouraged and music is reproduced without unnatural ringing, "chuffing," or midrange leaks, resulting in accuracy and clarity that other cabinet designs just can't match.
