A study of professional sound reinforcement loudspeaker systems used for reproducing modern musical information suggests the need for an improved-format, optimized compression-driver/ horn-loudspeaker for midrange (200 Hz to 2000 Hz). Performance trade-offs are investigated. The final design is a driver with unusually high efficiency, high output capability and low distortion. Furthermore, it uses a novel-design diaphragm with improved mechanical behavior.
