How do speakers work? Incredibly small, yet impressively loud


(Theodore J Tablante) #1

Speakers weigh less than a dime but can be heard throughout a massive room. How do they make such intricate sounds while being so small? This fundamental lesson gets into the components of a smartphone’s speaker as well as their function.

This animation was done entirely with Blender using 5 main scenes. The phone is my former LGV10 that got a 2nd life as Blender models. Most of the models were built using pictures taken with a V550 6,400dpi scanner, other pictures were taken using a DSLR. Luckily a lot of smartphone components are pretty flat and I could get rather high-resolution images with the scanner. If you have any questions or comments, I would be more than happy to hear them!
