The usual procedure for direct-radiator low-frequency loudspeaker system design leads to calculation of the driver's fundamental electromechanical parameters by an intermediate specification of the Thiele/Small parameters. A reformulation of the synthesis procedure to eliminate the intermediate Thiele/Small calculation lends to a set of equations that yield the driver's electromechanical parameters directly from the system specifications.
