Transducer Theory

A transducer is a device that converts energy from one form into another; for example, a speaker converts an electrical signal into a sound wave. This course focused on electroacoustic audio transducers, specifically microphones and loudspeakers. Topics included fundamentals of acoustics as well as the design of various loudspeakers (acoustic suspension, bass-reflex, transmission line, electrostatic, and horn) and microphones (dynamic, ribbon, and condenser).
