The Challenge

Redux identified an opportunity to apply their innovative technology by creating a plug in device that would substantially improve the sound quality of any PC.

The Solution

The Redux panel speaker uses patented bending-wave technology to produce superb audio directly from a vibrating surface, without the need for a bulky enclosure. Cambridge Design Partnership worked closely with Redux to design the loudspeaker chassis that supports the vibrating panel at the optimum locations. Our design allows free modal behaviour of the panel component which is key to the function of the speaker. CDP’s engineers designed a low-profile assembly which is volumetrically smaller than traditional micro-speakers and delivers great audio fidelity. The chassis was also value-engineered to target the appropriate cost for commercial success.

Benefit to client

Redux were able to have immediate access to CDP’s team of CAD engineers, industrial designers and electronic engineers and as a result they had a speaker chassis designed, and pre-production prototypes produced, in just five weeks.

Redux are now able to work on the commercialisation of the panel speaker and have the technology in place to approach potential partners that manufacture the PC equipment that these panels easily
integrate into.
