7/9/2015, Omaha, NE: The patented Planot speaker has no box, no tweeter and no crossover.
In the press release for the Create the Future Design Contest sponsored by Tech Briefs, COMSOL, HP and others, John J. Gaudreault, president of Planot LLC, states that the Planot speaker is consisted of a diaphragm in the form of a rigid, long thin rod that is a square or triangle in cross section. The rod, driven by a motor, moves back and forth around its axis. And that the speakers have a unique ability to decode information from recordings. Sound information that is literally lost when played over traditional speakers surrounds the listener.
