Abstract : A crossover network is coupled to each transducer in an array of acoustic transducers, each transducer having a different frequency band, and all of the crossover networks being coupled in parallel to a single driving amplifier. Each crossover network includes a network inductance connected in parallel with a transducer capacitance to form a parallel LC circuit, the resonant frequency of such circuit being equal to the resonant frequency of a transducer RLC series circuit. The network inductance of each network is coupled to the amplifier in series with a driver inductance and a driver capacitance, which are respectively equal to the inductance and capacitance of the RLC series circuit of a transducer.
