Piezoelectric Driver

Technology / Home Audio / Piezoelectric Driver: This is among the most robust and least expensive alternative drivers for the high frequency reproduction. The material used in the Piezoelectric Driver is a piezoelectric polymer first developed in the early 1960's. This piezoelectric polymer is a plastic-like material that, unlike a crystal, can be made into thin sheets and fashioned into a great variety of shapes. Its transient and high frequency response is very good because the moving mass is negligible. The driver operates by bending the lattices in the crystalline structure of the piezoelectric polymer film. The Piezoelectric Driver is inappropriate for low frequency applications, as it is incapable of large air displacements. This high frequency transducer is very uniform in response from approximately 2 khz to 20 khz. It typically is used in many car stereo enclosures and other compact space environments.
