Coaxial loudspeakers are designed to reproduce a broad frequency range while keeping a compact form factor. Correct driver integration requires to properly deal, at the design phase, with the presence of multiple radiating units and with the interference between their acoustic emissions; this is essential to obtain a smooth response and a wide crossover region suited to flexibly accommodate different filter designs. Due to the high frequencies they reproduce, recently-appeared coaxial compression drivers require particular care to ensure excellent acoustic performance at short wavelengths. Adding an appropriate decoupling device in the structure allows to effectively manage the acoustic emission of the two transducers with respect to each other, improving response regularity and increasing the available bandwidth for the crossover versus historical approaches.
This Engineering Brief presents the results of the research carried out at B&C Speakers during the development of the patent-pending acoustic decoupling device integrated into the Company's latest two-way coaxial compression driver, the B&C Speakers DCX464.
