High-Efficiency Three-way Speaker System

Document Thumbnail

With the improvement in response of -extended-range- single loudspeakers, questions have been raised about the advantages of multispeaker systems, particularly for home use. This paper discusses these advantages and describes a specific triple-range system consisting of a folded-horn woofer, and horn-type mid-range and tweeter units-all of the indirect-radiator type. Compression-type, horn-loaded units result in substantial improvement in efficiency, reduction of distortion, and increase in overall response. An integrated system of acceptable dimensions for home use is described.
