43-3515 Studies in Loudspeaker Theory


Course examines the principles of transduction as they apply to loudspeaker design. Throughout an audio system, from the microphone to the ear, energy is transformed, induced, and transduced. The class’s primary focus is on loudspeakers and loudspeaker enclosures: how electrical and mechanical energy is transformed into acoustical energy. Students explore the trade-offs and byproducts of this transfer, engage in aesthetic analyses, learn to predict effects, and examine the challenges involved in constructing various loudspeaker systems. Course analyzes loudspeaker characteristics, how they behave alone, and how they behave together supported by an introduction to loudspeaker performance predictive models.
