Re: OT-fundamentals in sound (was singing bowls)
I'm not claiming to be an acoustic engineer. So, I will already admit
defeat if that's what's due me. However, I think there is a fallacy
between drawing a similarity between the way a resonating cone or
half-sphere (like a bowl) produces sound and that produced by the two-way
excursion of a rigid cone (a speaker). The surface area argument just
doesn't feel right to me when we're not talking about excursion, but rather
a three-dimensional resonance. And for right now, "feel" is all I've got.
I'm still looking, though.
Will someone with a real working knowledge of this take the baton? I'm
foundlessly proselytizing and Bret threatens to beat me with a bigger stick
than I'd care to take.
