Tectonic Audio Labs has produced a 21-part technical video series explaining the function, performance and application of Distributed Mode Loudspeaker (DML) technology. Unlike traditional speaker systems that utilize pistonic cone and compression drives to produce audio, Tectonic speakers employ large format flat panel DML resonant mode devices to propagate audio.

“DMLs produce audio in a fundamentally different way than a typical loudspeaker does”, explains Tim Whitwell, physicist and DML expert. “This technology can seem quite counterintuitive to those not familiar with resonant mode devices.”

The Tectonic Technical Video Series condenses over three hours of conversations between Whitwell and transducer & loudspeaker systems engineer Marcelo Vercelli. Together they explore and explain DML technology. Each five minute video module covers a single topic in detail. Titles include:

  • How DMLs Work – Parts 1-4
  • DMLs vs. Pistonic Transducers
  • DML Feedback Resistance
  • DMLs In Reverberant Spaces
  • DML Stereo Imaging

“We set-up a video library on our web site that allows visitors to easily browse and sample topics of interest”, says Scott Garside, Marketing Director. “There is a wealth of information here that provides a fundamental understanding of resonant mode audio propagation. The function and benefits of DMLs are quite remarkable.”
