What is a loudspeaker?
loudspeaker, more commonly just called a speaker, is in engineering terms a kind of electroacoustic transducer. In other words, s peakers convert electrical signals into musical sound you can hear through the movement of air via sound waves.
The word “speaker” be used to refer to a single speaker driver (individual tweeter, woofer, etc.) as well as a speaker system that is made up of 2 or more individual units. A speaker system often includes an enclosure to capture sound waves and make the production of midrange and bass frequencies possible.
Although there’s a wide range of speaker types, the most common are electromagnetic, consisting of a wound wire coil (voice coil), a permanent magnet assembly, a cone to move air, and a frame attached to suspension parts to hold the assembly in place.
