Tymphany speakers: more compact bass

updated 11:15 am EDT, Tue August 1, 2006


As most any audiophile can tell you, truly deep bass usually requires a big subwoofer to push out massive quantities of air. While that's all well and good for your home theater, it condemns anyone tight on space (or just afraid of clutter) to a kind of audio purgatory where everything sounds tinny and weak. Enter Tymphany: as Wired News reports, the company's Tymphany LAT (Linear Array Transducer) design has small diaphragms in a series that push and pull on each other, rather than a single, massive cone. This, says the company, will let them put woofers and subwoofers into computer speakers, MP3 player docks, and flat-panel HDTVs that previously had to go without. What's more is that Tymphany has also eliminated the vibration that could rattle apart that very same gear.
