CLAIMS

We claim:

1. A loudspeaker comprising:

a high frequency (HF) driver;

a low frequency (LF) driver coaxially arranged with the HF driver; and a waveguide overlying a sound radiating surface of the LF driver, the waveguide having a hole pattern such that a sound radiation pattern of the LF driver matches a sound radiation pattern of the HF driver at a reference location.

2. The loudspeaker of claim 1, wherein the waveguide comprises an aperture through which the HF driver is exposed.

3. The loudspeaker of claim 1, further comprising batting located between the waveguide and the LF driver, wherein the batting controls cavity resonance between the LF driver and the waveguide, and wherein the batting is acoustically transparent at low frequencies and acts as a rigid acoustic boundary at high frequencies.

4. The loudspeaker of claim 1, wherein the waveguide is located in front of the LF driver.

5. The loudspeaker of claim 1, wherein the waveguide comprises a rigid baffle surrounding the HF driver and defining the hole pattern.

6. The loudspeaker of claim 5, wherein the hole pattern comprises a plurality of holes arranged around the HF driver.

7. The loudspeaker of claim 1, wherein energy from the LF driver is vented through holes in the hole pattern to control a beamwidth of an acoustic output.

8. The loudspeaker of claim 1, wherein the waveguide comprises a material for dissipating heat from the HF driver.

9. The loudspeaker of claim 1, further comprising:

an enclosure defining an acoustic volume in front of the LF driver; and a Helmholtz resonator coupled with the acoustic volume in front of the LF driver.

10. The loudspeaker of claim 1, further comprising:

a housing defining an acoustic backvolume between the LF driver and the HF driver; and

a Helmholtz resonator coupled with the acoustic backvolume between the LF driver and the HF driver.

11. A loudspeaker comprising:

a high frequency (HF) driver;

a low frequency (LF) driver coaxially arranged with the HF driver;

a waveguide overlying a sound radiating surface of the LF driver, the waveguide comprising a plate with a plurality of holes extending axially therethrough, wherein a sound radiation pattern of the LF driver matches a sound radiation pattern of the HF driver at a reference location; and

batting located between the waveguide and the LF driver, wherein the batting controls cavity resonance between the LF driver and the waveguide.

12. The loudspeaker of claim 11, wherein the waveguide comprises an aperture through which the HF driver is exposed.

13. The loudspeaker of claim 11, wherein the batting is acoustically transparent at low frequencies and acts as a rigid acoustic boundary at high frequencies.

14. The loudspeaker of claim 11, wherein the waveguide is located in front of the LF driver.

15. The loudspeaker of claim 11, wherein the plate comprises a rigid baffle, and wherein the plurality of holes are arranged around the HF driver.

16. The loudspeaker of claim 11, wherein energy from the LF driver is vented through the plurality of holes to control a beamwidth of an acoustic output.

17. The loudspeaker of claim 11, further comprising:

an enclosure defining an acoustic volume in front of the LF driver; and a Helmholtz resonator coupled with the acoustic volume in front of the LF driver.

18. The loudspeaker of claim 11, further comprising:

a housing defining an acoustic backvolume between the LF driver and the HF driver; and

a Helmholtz resonator coupled with the acoustic backvolume between the LF driver and the HF driver.

19. A method comprising:

providing a loudspeaker comprising:

a high frequency (HF) driver;

a low frequency (LF) driver coaxially arranged with the HF driver; and a waveguide overlying a sound radiating surface of the LF driver; and converting an electrical signal to an acoustic output at the loudspeaker, wherein the waveguide has a hole pattern such that the acoustic output comprises a sound radiation pattern of the LF driver that matches a sound radiation pattern of the

HF driver at a reference location.

20. The method of claim 19, wherein energy from the LF driver is vented through holes in the hole pattern to control a beamwidth of the acoustic output, wherein the loudspeaker further comprises batting located between the waveguide and the LF driver, wherein the batting controls cavity resonance between the LF driver and the waveguide, and the batting is acoustically transparent at low frequencies and acts as a rigid acoustic boundary at high frequencies.
