The generation of sufficient acoustical output by smaller audio systems requires maximum exploitation of the usable working range. Digital preprocessing of audio input signals can be used to prevent a mechanical or thermal overload generating excessive distortion and eventually damaging the transducer. The first part of two related papers focuses on the mechanical protection defining useful technical terms and the theoretical framework to compare existing algorithms and to develop meaningful specifications required for the adjustment of the protection system to the particular transducer. The new concept is illustrated with a micro-speaker and the data exchange and communication between transducer manufacturer, software provider, and system integrator are discussed.
