Damping

 
Added by ANT, 03-28-2012 09:35 PM
The reduction of movement of a speaker cone, due to either the electromechanical characteristics of a speaker driver suspension, the effects of frictional losses inside a speaker, and/or electrical means. Refers to the ability of an audio component to "stop" after the signal ends. For example, if a drum is struck with a mallet, the sound will reach a peak level and then decay in a certain amount of time to no sound. An audio component that allows the decay to drag on too long has poor damping, and less definition than it should. An audio component that is overdamped does not allow the initial energy to reach the full peak and cuts the decay short. "Boomy" or "muddy" sound is often the result of underdamped systems. "Dry" or "lifeless" sound may be the result of an overdamped system.┬*┬*┬*
