Cone loudspeakers exhibit a peak impedance at their resonant frequency, resulting in poor power transfer and high distortion in this frequency range. The development and performance of a new speaker with integral, non-electrical means for minimizing this impedance peak, without dependency upon associated enclosures, is described. Electro-acoustic efficiency at all frequencies above the resonance range is not adversely affected.
