The Tectonic Elements TEAX19C01-8 exciter employs proprietary technologies and premium materials to produce a transducer that converts almost any surface into an audio loudspeaker.
- Small size for use where speakers wouldn't be possible
- Turn any surface into a HiFi speaker
Tectonic Elements TEAX19C01-8 19mm Metal Cup Exciter 8 Ohm
Tectonic Elements 19 mm TEAX19C01-8 exciter continues their tradition of making magical devices (Distributed Mode Loudspeakers) that turn virtually any surface into a high fidelity loudspeaker. The exciter's small size enables audio reproduction in applications where installing conventional speakers just isn't possible, such as windows, monitors—even picture frames!
The TEAX19C01-8 exciter uses a neodymium magnet to increase magnetic flux around the voice coil. This results in increased sensitivity, which reduces power requirements and allows low power amplifiers to be used without sacrificing total output.
3M™ VHB™ tape is pre-installed on each exciter and offers unsurpassed surface adhesion while spreading the stress load across the entire length of the joint. This ensures maximum acoustic energy transfer between the transducer and the surface to which it is attached. Two terminals extend from the exciter for wire soldering purposes.
A great field of application for this exciter is so-called DML or flat-panel speakers. DML stands for Distributed Mode Loudspeakers and is a term for speakers that catch the eye with their incredibly slim design.
Note: an exciter's frequency response and sensitivity are completely dependent on the exciter's designated surface. Thinner, smaller materials will tend to be louder and facilitate mid/tweeter response. Thicker, larger materials will be slightly quieter but result in a more full-range sound.
