Product Development: PD10 - Optimizing the Powered Loudspeaker System

Scott Leslie, Ashly Audio - Webster, NY, USA; PD Squared - Irvine, CA USA

Historically amplifiers and loudspeakers have been interfaced using a simplified interface of 4/8 Ohm nominal speakers impedance. With a general market trend towards self-powered speakers, greater optimization in the interface between speaker and amplifier becomes possible. This tutorial aligns to the product design track, theme 2 and will provide a forum for discussing of required amplifier performance for self-powered speakers as well as optimization techniques between the amplifier section and speaker drivers and provide better understanding of the complex interfaces of the signal processing, power amplification and the acoustic domain in a self-powered speaker in order for speaker designers to optimize self-powered speaker designs and achieve higher SPL levels at lower cost.
