Electrostatic Speakers

Electrostatic principle   The electrostatic principle has inherent advantages which make possible the construction of loudspeakers with lower coloration, better transient response, and lower non-linearity distortion. Also, the radiation characteristics are more...

Magnetostrictive Speakers

Magnetostriction   Magnetostriction (cf. electrostriction) is a property of ferromagnetic materials that causes them to change their shape or dimensions during the process of magnetization. The variation of materials’ magnetization due to the applied...

Magnetostatic Loudspeaker

What is a magnetostatic loudspeaker?   A magnetostatic loudspeaker, in its essence, is a dipole loudspeaker which can be similar to the electrostatic loudspeaker. Unlike electrostatic loudspeaker, which uses high voltages, magnetostatic loudspeaker uses high...

Piezoelectric Speaker

What is a Piezoelectric speaker?   The Piezoelectric speaker is known by quite a few names, piezo, buzzer and crystal loudspeaker is just some of them. In its essence, it is a speaker that uses a piezoelectric effect to generate the sound. By applying a voltage...

Moving Iron Speaker

What is a Moving Iron Speaker   Moving iron speaker (also known as a moving-coil loudspeaker) could be considered as one of the earliest types of speakers. Their use is still present in some small size speakers where developers are not turning to sound quality...

Coaxial Speakers

What is a Coaxial speaker?   A coaxial speaker system is a system in which the individual driver units radiate the sound from the same point of axis. There are two main types. One is a compact design using two or three speaker drivers, usually in-car audio. The...
