Dynaudio LYD 48 Left Black – 3 Way Studio Monitor

The Dynaudio LYD 48 Left Speaker in Black is a single 3-way LYD monitor. With its newest addition to the LYD personal reference monitor series, Dynaudio is bringing a new perspective to power and precision for producers and musicians everywhere. It does this with unmatched accuracy at any volume level.

Personal Reference Monitors

The LYD 48 Black 3-way near-midfield monitors reach eyebrow-raising levels of accuracy. This is thanks to both a new soft-dome tweeter and Dynaudio’s proprietary Magnesium Silicate Polymer midrange driver and woofer. Each driver is fuelled by a powerful; state-of-the-art Class-D amplifier and a full 24-bit/96kHz signal path. As a result, like the rest of the LYD range, it lets you fine-tune low-frequency response, position and sound balance using cutting-edge DSP.

Finally, with its advanced DSP, LYD 48 lets you extend or curtail the low-frequency response by 10 Hz where needed. While Position and Sound Balance ensure optimal performance in any environment.

LYD 48 Room Boundaries

Each surface in the room constitutes a boundary for sound; floor, walls, and ceiling. Room boundaries will reflect sound to one degree or another; depending on what their surface is made of. For example hardwood, drywall, carpet etc. You should avoid placing the speakers very close to any boundary. The closer a speaker is to a room boundary, the more anomalies there can be in the low-frequency response of the system. Placing a speaker close to more than one boundary (e.g. in a corner) creates even worse problems in many cases.

Conversely, placing LYD 48 speakers exactly halfway between room boundaries can over-excite fundamental standing waves in the room, making the bass response less reliable. This also holds true for the listening position. These room anomalies are always present and good placement of the speaker and listener will reduce their effect.

A good rule of thumb is to place speakers somewhere between one quarter and one-third of the distance between room boundaries. Also, make sure the listening position is not right in the centre of the room if possible. In larger rooms, this is less critical than in small rooms.

Sometimes this ideal positioning is not possible. Limitations in space and other equipment or furniture in the room will dictate some aspects of the speaker position. The idea is to do the best you can with the limitations you have.

Listening Distance

The LYD 5, 7 & 8 speakers are also designed as near field monitors. You should place Near field Monitors relatively close to the listener, between 1 and 2 meters. You can use the LYD 48 as both near or midfield monitors. The ideal listening distance is between 1.5 and 2.5 meters.

LYD 48 Speakers on the Desk

These LYD 48 loudspeakers will work well in a variety of positions. Also very close or placed on the work surface in front of you. You should tilt the speakers slightly if they are resting on a desk or console.

Speaker Stands

If you need to place your LYD 48 speakers on stands behind your work surface or computer screens at a greater distance; you should use a subwoofer to augment the low-frequency response. This will help the speaker system achieve a reasonable volume without overdriving the speakers.

Listening Angle

You should begin with placing the LYD 48 speakers so that; the drivers are oriented vertically. This means that the tweeter is directly above the woofer. This orientation ensures correct time alignment between the high and low frequencies as they arrive at the listener.

LYD 48 Horizontal Angle

You should place the LYD 48 speakers so that they create a 60-degree angle between the speakers. The easiest way to accomplish this without measuring the angle is to create an equilateral triangle between the speakers and the listener. In other words, the distance between each speaker should equal the distance from each speaker to the listener. You should also be positioning the LYD 48 with the woofers inside (recommended) or outside; depending on how the equilateral triangle can be achieved best. Make sure to take measurements from the acoustic axis of the speaker.

An easy method to do this involves the tape measure and string.

  1. Just use a tape measure to check that the speaker is not further away than 2 meters for the best response.
  2. Once you have initially placed the speakers, take the string holding one end at the speaker’s acoustic axis and stretch it out to the listening position.
  3. Mark this point with a marker.
  4. Do this again for the other speaker to ensure that they are both the exact same distance from the listener.
  5. Use the string to measure the distance between each speaker. This should also be the same, forming an equilateral triangle between the two speakers and the listener.
  6. Make adjustments as necessary to place the listener and speakers at the same distance from each other

Vertical Angle

The vertical angle of the LYD 48 speakers should orient the loudspeaker directly toward the listener’s ear level. If you place the LYD 48 higher than the listener; it should be angled downward. When you place the speaker below the listener; it should be angled upward to point at the ear.
