- A type of speaker in which an audiofrequency signal current is sent through a voice coil, which is attached to a diaphragm. The interaction with a constant magnetic field provides the coil with a piston-like movement, which is mechanically transferred to the diaphragm, which in turn generates the sound waves that emanate from the speaker. Also called dynamic loudspeaker, moving-coil speaker, or electrodynamic speaker.
