The Electrostatic Loudspeaker Design Cookbook
The Electrostatic Loudspeaker Design
An encyclopedic exploration of the important issues, tradeoffs, and technical questions involved in building these fascinating speakers. Offers construction advice for both flat and curved panels. Includes a curved cell design by Barry McClune. THE ELECTROSTATIC LOUDSPEAKER has intrigued music lovers since their first commercial introduction just after World War II. Hearing music via such a device often turns ordinary music listeners into dedicated, passionate partisans of this transducer format as the only true path to accurate sound reproduction. Add to this the additional incentive that such speakers can be constructed out of readily available materials, and the convert turns into a devotee ready to invest quantities of time and energy into the nearest equivalent of the perfect loudspeaker. The ability to move a panel of graphite-impregnated plastic immersed in a high-voltage field with an audio signal has fascinated audiophiles since the earliest days of high quality sound reproduction after World War II. This enthusiasm leads inevitably into explorations of the legendary output transformer-less amplifier (OTL) genre since such devices match their high impedance outputs ideally to the elec-trostatic’s input. Then there is the electrostatic headphone sideshow which beckons t...

How electrostatic speakers work
Here's how electrostatic speakers work. Unless your an audiophile, you've probably never heard of the electrostatic loudspeaker. Electrostatic loudspeakers are pretty hip in the audiophile World because they exhibit levels of distortion one to two orders of magnitude lower than conventional co...
Electrostatic Loudspeaker (ESL) Technology - MartinLogan
An electrostatic transducer has three basic components - stators, diaphragm, and spars (spacers) - assembled as a sandwich. We explain how each of these components work to create the magical MartinLogan sound for which our electrostatic speakers are known.
