Re: No More Headphones
Simple physics states that refraction will only occur when the size of aperture is smaller than the wavelength. These are dealing with the high frequencies with very small wavelengths (feel free to correct my physics, it's been an awfully long time) and I don't see how large horns are going to affect the driver, regardless of size. I've seen full range speakers with tiny treble drivers but large horns and it doesn't make any subjective difference as far as I can tell other than altering the directional characteristics. Certainly not distortion; which would occur at the point of the creation of the wave. If the membrane was damaged, yes, and if it were being driven too hard, yes. Otherwise, no.
