SPL is typically measured using decibels (dB), which are derived by considering the ratio of a given pressure with some reference pressure.

What is Santoprene? Santoprene is a rubber-like material that can be used to make a speaker cone or gasket in a loudspeaker. Santoprene is often used when a lower resonant frequency is desired. With a look a feel similar to rubber, Santoprene provides a more flexible and simple design suitable for easier manufacturing. The graphic … Continue reading “Audio Dictionary: What is Santoprene”

So, modeling a loudspeaker driver’s low frequency performance is readily accomplished with an analogous R-L-C circuit. But these circuit components are amalgams of the interaction between the electrical, mechanical, and acoustic aspects of this energy conversion. Interestingly, though, Thiele, Small, and several other audio researchers and engineers have determined an ingenious methodology for gleaning these … Continue reading “Thiele-Small Parameters: The Measurement”
