Abstract

A window loudspeaker combination comprising a pane of glass or other transparent material adapted to be supported at its periphery in a surround and a vibration exciter coupled to the pane to cause bending wave vibration therein to produce an acoustic output, characterised in that the vibration exciter is an electrodynamic inertial device having a low mass voice coil, a magnet system associated with the voice coil, and a suspension for mounting voice coil in the magnet system for movement relative thereto, the vibration exciter being mounted wholly on the plane.
