Abstract

This Major Qualifying Project aims to improve upon previous efforts to develop a low-profile planar home speaker system. This subproject focuses on evaluating methods to produce a moving magnet transducer with reduced eddy-currents and improved production efficiency. The team developed procedures to analyze two commercial methods and one in-house method of production of a low eddy-current-loss stator assembly. The group also redesigned, fabricated, and improved a filament extruder and devised an experimental process to improve the system.
