SPS Series

Sonitron Polymer/metal Speakers (SPS) produce high sound quality with low distortion and guarantee the perfect reproduction of music and speech. They have a very flat design and are delivered with an open front. They can be used in difficult environmental conditions and applications because of resistance of the front to water, humidity, vibrations, and dust. Piezoceramic speakers feature a low weight and low energy consumption relative to their sound output levels. They do not generate an electromagnetic field, making it easier for designers to ensure that their products meet EMC requirements and regulations.

Impedance 

Theoretical the main impedance of the piezo speakers is a capacitive reactance and follows an asymptotic function.

 

 

The typical practical impedance values (+/- 20%) for frequencies of 100Hz up to 20kHz of our speakers are as follows:

Mounting guidelines 

The SPS speakers can be mounted in several different ways. The mounting methods illustrated below are recommended to mount all the SPS speaker models. Please keep in mind that not too much mechanical stress is placed on the frame of the piezoceramic speaker after mounting.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Important note:

Piezoceramic speakers produce sound by the forward and backward movement of a flat membrane. During this movement, the membrane creates an air pressure wave in front and at the backside of the membrane. A forward movement will create a slight overpressure at the front side and a slight underpressure at the backside and vice versa. It is therefore important that the front and backside are acoustically isolated from each other to avoid air pressure cancellation and consequently a serious reduction of the sound output.

 

 

When a speaker is mounted in a panel or in the wall of a housing, the front side is acoustically isolated from the backside.
