Incisor diffusion technology™ works by using the surface the speaker is placed upon to diffuse sound across and through it. A traditional speaker uses a cone to amplify the sound frequencies.
The frequency and range of traditional speakers directly depends upon the size of the cone as well as the driver, hence why many small portable speakers sound “tinny”. They cannot offer both deep bass and higher frequency because the driver can only deliver certain frequency ranges. It is why many HiFi systems have separate subwoofers for low frequencies (bass). Overtime, a traditional speaker will lose amplification capabilities due to wear of the cone. Even worse can happen if the cone tears; the speaker becomes inaudible.
Incisor diffusion technology™ has removed the need for a cone. It does this by using the surface to act as a “cone”: the surface diffuses the sound. This allows Damson’s products to provide a full audible frequency range across its products that use Incisor Diffusion Technology™. Different surfaces (or substrates) have different resonating properties, so audio will sound slightly different depending upon the surface it is placed upon.
Because Damson has been able to push the capabilities of the sound it means that there is no need for different speakers to provide vocals/acoustics and bass. A traditional speaker has a coil that is fixed to the permanent magnet (often referred to as the driver). Damson’s Incisor Diffusion Technology has replaced the coil with “teeth” (incisors). These act in the same way as a coil; they power the different frequencies that are pushed down the leg through to the surface. Due to the way the Incisor Diffusion Technology™ reacts with the surface, it allows the sound to transfer through it. Place one of our speakers on a window and the sound is diffused through the glass and can be heard on both sides.
In tests with people who have hearing conditions, Incisor Diffusion Technology™ offers a way for those who cannot hear music through traditional speakers to hear sound through vibrations.
Experimenting with surfaces
|Surfaces that work the best include:||Surfaces that don't work include:|
|Thin wood (around 1cm (1") thick - a guitar body is ideal||Concrete|
|Glass - Tables, Windows, Shower Screens, Windshields||Asphalt|
|Metals - Car bonnet/hood or even the roof and tailgate||Grass/Mud|
|Carboard - Try a cereal or packing box||Tarmac|
|Plastics - like tupperware or similar||Sand|
|A big bag of crisps (chips) but don't open the bag!||Thick/Solid Wood|
|Even try a cushion!||Granite or Stone|
To optimise the sound we suggest a little experimentation but in essence if there is a surface that acts as a box then this will provide loud amplification. Similarly using windows, especially double glazed as the vacuum inside adds to the amplification. To give examples of great surfaces try a grand piano, a guitar, a coffee table, window, refrigerator, car bonnet or the roof, stud partition walls. If you discover anymore, let us know.
For even greater application use the metal mount to fit the speaker to a window and hear the sound on both sides!
