Standard dynamic and electrostatic transducers form the basis of mainstream loudspeaker system design. Indeed, there are few other principles of transduction that exhibit either the linearity or the acoustical output capability to form a basis for loudspeaker design. Nonetheless, there is always interest in transducers based on other physical principles or unusual variations of conventional technology.
