THX Certification is a globally recognized assurance of uncompromising quality, consistency and performance. We blend art, technology, and the dynamics of real-world listening and viewing environments to ensure products deliver the artist’s true vision. THX engineers perform hundreds of tests to ensure sound and picture reproduction in the industry’s top entertainment equipment is fully preserved. Only the very best products with uncompromising quality, performance, and consistency become THX Certified, making your next home entertainment purchase an easy decision.
We analyze everything from output levels, frequency response, signal-to-noise, distortion and bass management to recreate high impact cinema sound and best-in-class audio fidelity. Key tests include:
AXIAL FREQUENCY RESPONSE:
This describes a loudspeaker’s ability to reproduce audio accurately. Our test confirms the axial frequency response is balanced and flat
VERTICAL AND HORIZONTAL DISPERSION:
We test the off-axis response to make sure it is smooth with no audible comb filtering, turning every seat in the room into the “sweet spot.”
OUTPUT VS. DISTORTION:
This test ensures the speaker can reach the high volumes necessary to achieve THX Reference Level without creating audible distortion or artifacts
