Audio Exciters and Flat Panel Speakers

Tech Ingredients - World’s Best Speakers!

I recently saw this video and I was impressed with the quality and flexibility of audio exciters. If you aren’t familiar with what they are, the above video is a great demo for them and Dayton Audio’s site has great info as well.

What are your thoughts on these and what project ideas do you have?

Exciters, if done properly, can be pretty nice imo. They can be a fun project to make some panel speakers. I don’t think they can hold up against something like magnipans, but they are actually pretty good for the price

For bass shakers maybe but I’m not a fan for music/voice frequencies coverage.

I think if they make the panels properly and have a multi driver config with appropriate crossovers, it can sound pretty alright

I watched DMS’s video where he made speakers using exciters, but I didn’t know much about them beyond that before reading this. I think it would be a really cool idea to make like a super stealth home theater setup using nothing but exciters and paneling that are strategically placed around your room. I don’t know how good that would sound, but it seems like a fun project if nothing else.

I’ve heard a stealth(ish) magnipan wall mounted setup and it was pretty neat, although I don’t think the exciters would be as good
