Bending Wave Speakers

The principle of Bending Wave Speakers   One of the ways to illustrate the basic principle of how bending wave speakers operate, the following image could be helpful. By throwing a stone into the lake, the water surface is being destabilized by its impulse. This...

Planar Magnetic Speakers

What are Planar Magnetic Speakers?   The planar magnetic speaker is a type of speaker closely related to the electrostatic speaker. It is nearly identical in radiation concept to an electrostatic loudspeaker, having a large, thin, vertically orientated plastic...

Ribbon Speakers

Ribbon speakers diaphragm   The diaphragm of a ribbon loudspeaker is conductive and it is positioned in a transverse magnetic field. It is also supported at each end. Current flowing along the diaphragm creates a force perpendicular to it. The mechanism produces...

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...
