Traditionally loudspeaker cones have been designed in a trial-and-error fashion. Because of complex difficulties encountered in loudspeaker cone design, no mathematical approach had been thought useful until the recent introduction of the finite-element method. This method has been applied to the simulation of cone vibrations and to the sound radiation from loudspeaker cones, and the results are in favorable agreement with measurements.
