Studio speakers are placed above the mixing console,
one meter apart and one meter away from each ear of the
audio engineer. These speakers are designed to faithfully
reproduce all the audible frequencies at the same level.
'Pink Noise' is a tool that audio engineers use to set up
and equalize a sound system for the best performance.
Pink noise is a noise that contains all of the frequencies
at once. Blue Noise is all lows and rolls down (in db level)
as the frequencies increase. White Noise is all highs and
rolls up as the frequencies (across a spectrum analyzer's
scale) increase. These speakers are more expensive than
your common book shelf units. You can use your book shelf
speakers as studio monitors, but will require an equalizer
to boost the frequencies that they tend not to reproduce well.
Studio speakers are powered by a clean amplifier, like an
Altec Lansing, BGW or a Crown. These units can be very
expensive; so you might want to keep it simple. You can
use most any amp for your app as long as it's clean. The
equalizer will take care of any short comings of both the
speakers and the amp you choose.
