Mechanical Nonlinearities of Electrodynamic Loudspeakers: An Experimental Study

Spider and surround suspensions are at the origin of viscoelastic and nonlinear behaviors of loudspeakers because of their assembly geometry and their intrinsic materials. We propose here a new dynamic experimental method to characterize these properties. We drive the loudspeaker moving part with a shaker and measure the driving force, the acceleration, the velocity, and the displacement. Results are presented and discussed for a given loudspeaker, which surround suspensions exhibit viscoelastic behavior.
