Full Range Loudspeaker Patent Family and Ceramic Metal Matrix Diaphragm Patent Family

FULL RANGE LOUDSPEAKER

US 7,167,573

ABSTRACT

An edge-driven diaphragm loudspeaker driver is configured such that the suspension system of the driver is connected to the voice coil rather than to the diaphragm. Thus, the diaphragm in the loudspeaker is free of suspension systems connected to or extending from the diaphragm. By attaching the surround suspension to the voice coil rather than to the diaphragm, the diaphragm is isolated from the influence of spurious high frequency vibrations in the suspension system, thereby increasing the performance of the loudspeaker at high frequencies. The loudspeaker driver configuration also provides for a longer excursion range for the voice coil/diaphragm assembly, which allows for the driver components to be more accurately aligned during manufacturing, thereby enabling the loudspeaker driver to operate as a full range unit by producing low output frequencies.

 

CERAMIC METAL MATRIX DIAPHRAGM FOR LOUDSPEAKERS

US 6,327,372

ABSTRACT

A speaker diaphragm for a loudspeaker that has a composite material formed of two layers of ceramic material separated by a light metal substrate with the percentage ratio of the thickness of the ceramic layers to the light metal substrate being in the range of from about 10% to 45% for each ceramic layer and a corresponding 80% to 10% for the lightweight metal substrate.
