Warkwyn has designed a wide variety of systems including small Bluetooth systems, soundbars, satellites, bookshelves, tower speakers and subwoofers for a variety of clients. The systems we have designed have been uniformly successful in the marketplace and widely praised by critics.
Typically audio system enclosures are conceived by industrial designers and marketing people; who often lack experience with acoustical systems. The designs are not always manufacturable and some have acoustic issues. We work closely with the industrial design team from the beginning of the project to ensure that the product looks and sounds fantastic.
Enclosure design is always a combination of simulations and prototype measurements. Simulations alone can lead to some strange (often poor) results. We always verify simulations with measurements at the early stages and adjust the simulation properties to match reality. Only after this has been completed can we trust the enclosure simulations. The final designs are also prototyped and measured.
Part of the system design is to align the enclosure to a desired frequency. This can be accomplished with sealed or vented systems. We are especially adept at designing ported and passive radiator systems.
Working with your sonic goals, we design active and passive crossover circuits. Some clients want to match a competitor’s products performance, others want to match their own products. We use simulations and measurements to design initial crossovers and then make final adjustments based on rigorous standardized listening tests with your full involvement.
We will supply you with detailed system performance reports including SPL, THD, IMD, max output for given distortion, impedance, 3d balloon plots of sound radiation and other relevant measurements.
