The Distributed Mode Loudspeaker – A New Class of Radiator for Sound Reinforcement

Distributed Mode Loudspeakers (DMLs) utilize bending wave modal physics to propagate wide directivity, predominantly diffuse acoustic energy into a given space. Unlike traditional loudspeaker systems, the net effect is a single, large drive unit that radiates audio over almost eight octaves in a very wide and diffuse manner. In this talk, Tectonic Audio Labs VP of Engineering Tim Whitwell will explain how a DML works, what the radiaton from a DML looks like, and the benefits this brings to sound reinforcement applications.
