Monitor Isolation Pads

What are monitor isolation pads?   Music producers and sound engineers use various devices to decouple the monitors from the surface. Accordingly, most widespread are monitor isolation pads made of dense acoustic foam and metal spikes on which the speakers rest....

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...
