This paper presents an experimental study of the main causes of scrap during the production of a typical midrange loudspeaker. After analyzing the most critical components of a transducer, various samples with reference and defected components have been built and characterized in terms of frequency response and distortion. In addition, a second set of samples has been built using reference components but varying the assembly process parameters; these samples also have been characterized as the previous ones. Measurements have been performed both in an anechoic chamber and in a real production line and, by the analysis of acquired data, the authors have individuated the most influential components and assembly parameters in terms of required performance.
