An American-South Korean startup has developed and patented the Flat Core Speaker technology. The new version of the planar electrodynamic transducer was named Res-Core and differs from the usual speaker by significantly smaller dimensions with comparable characteristics. The flat, oblong, treadmill-shaped cone is driven by a flat voice coil placed between powerful magnets.
It took a long time for the company to find an investor who would provide the funds needed to commercialize the development. Now the American acoustic giant Klipsch will do it. The first production models will be designed for the Car Audio segment, where the dimensions of the radiators are especially critical.
