Amplitude Panning

Amplitude panning is a system that transforms both the phase and amplitude differences of a signal recorded by stereophonic reception systems into amplitude differences reproduced by two speakers. This stereophonic reception systems are usually microphone stereo pairs or the human ears. Amplitude panning is the basis of several multi-loudspeaker configurations. This system derives from stereophony…

Rotary Woofers

Rotary woofers are a type of loudspeaker that uses the coil’s movement to modify the pitch of a set of fan blades. Rotary woofers are capable of creating sounds below the normal level of human hearing, which is 20Hz. By compressing the air in a closed room, these woofers are able to produce frequencies below…

Digital Speakers

Digital speakers, also known as Digital Sound Reconstruction (DCR) systems involve loudspeaker technology. These types of speakers are different from modern digital formats and processing because engineers have not yet developed them as a mature technology.  Digital Sound Reconstruction systems bring the digital signal closer to the transducing process and are capable of transforming electrical…

Electrodynamic Speakers

Electromagnetic speakers were invented around 1860, but it took over forty years to develop the knowledge of acoustics, materials, math and frequencies that gave birth to the electrodynamic speakers that we know today. The then-recent developments in vacuum tubes were extremely helpful regarding control of frequencies and power regulation, as well as amplification.  Nowadays engineers…

Full-Range Speakers

A full-range speaker is a device that is capable of producing a wide variety of frequencies. The design of the full-range speaker has great influence over the overall sound quality. It’s worth mentioning that sound frequency is measured by the number of times that the audio signal rises and then falls within a second. Quality…

Subwoofer Speakers

Subwoofers are arranged in a quite peculiar way and have unique features. Subwoofers are set in separate compartments that cover about a three-octave range. The large wave-range within the subwoofer range might diffract around close objects, typically other subwoofer speakers. While full-range speakers are usually not faced directly toward each other, subwoofers find that assembly…

Woofer Speakers

Woofer speakers, also known as bass speakers, are devices that can handle low to low-mid frequencies within the audio spectrum. The word woofer derives from the sound that dogs produce when they bark. The frequency range of woofer speakers is set between 40Hz and 500Hz. It’s worth mentioning that the lowest frequency sound that the…

Mid-Range Speakers

A mid-range speaker is a device that covers the middle part of the frequency spectrum. Mid-range speakers cover the most important part of the audio spectrum, so they run from a range that goes from 500Hz to 4kHz. It’s worth mentioning that the human voice, as well as a wide variety of instruments, are positioned…
