Loudspeakers: A Quart from a Pint Pot?

[Feature] It is currently important to build small, efficient loudspeaker systems that can be installed in mobile devices. These sorts of transducers are particularly susceptible to problems such as rub and buzz because they don’t have the mechanical stability of larger loudspeakers. They may also need more sophisticated protection than larger units. We find that one might want to treat with some scepticism the idea that coating one’s tweeters with exotic vapor deposits will improve sound quality. There is also some evidence that distributed-mode loudspeakers will have difficulty reproducing accurate impulse responses.
