Technology / Home Audio / Counter Firing: A method for reducing harmonic distortion at low frequencies that involves the use of a secondary coil in a woofer or mid bass driver to cancel non-fundamental wave elements not found in the original signal. The signal from the coil is used by the amplifier to refine it's damping control over the cone motion. This proprietary servo-feedback technology was originally developed by Velodyne in the early '90s.
