Home High Efficiency Speaker Asylum

Need speakers that can rock with just one watt? You found da place.

That was a line of thinking of the person who invented it.

In fact, the high mass of the whizzer cone does not allow it to move as an entity at high frequencies, even though it is relatively rigid. Instead, it goes into multiple breakup modes. With proper material, breakup resonances can be dampened, which allows achieving more or less flat frequency response. But don't be misled by flat response. Distortion and stored energy tests of whizzer cones are uniformly unfavorable.

It doesn't take sophisticated tests to tell the difference between a whizzer cone and a dome tweeter. With demanding acoustic material like vocals, piano, and strings, it is very apparent.

For certain kinds of music where high frequency content is essentially noise, whizzer cones may be OK.
