Viscous Friction and Temperature Stability of the Mid-High Frequency Loudspeaker
Mid-high frequency loudspeakers behave quite differently as compared to low-frequency units, regarding effects coming from the surrounding air medium. Previous work stressed high influence of the imaginary part of the viscous force, which significantly affects the resonance frequency of mid-high frequency loudspeakers. Viscous force is relatively high dependent on temperature and humidity of the surrounding air, and in this paper we have evaluated how changes in temperature and humidity reflect to the loudspeaker's linearity, which may be significant for the quality of sound reproduction.
