  • Patent number: 10779076
    Abstract: A damper and a speaker apparatus includes the damper, which suppresses damage to an oscillatory system from an excessive input signal, enabling an efficiency increase of the speaker apparatus. As a damper has a planar surface, undue deformation of the oscillatory system due to an excessive input signal is suppressed, and damage to the oscillatory system can be suppressed. Furthermore, since the deformation of a corrugation portion by a normal input signal is hardly prevented, a reduction in sound pressure of the speaker apparatus with respect to an input signal is suppressed, enabling an increase in efficiency. Furthermore, the planar surface is extended at a height in a thickness direction different from that of an attachment portion. Thus, rising portions are deformed when a voice coil bobbin is oscillated, enabling suppression of rupture of the damper in the vicinity of a boundary between the planar surface and the attachment portion.

  • Patent number: 10770687
    Abstract: A standard direction (S) is a horizontal direction (a direction along X direction in the drawing). A base material (200) is supported by a frame body (250) so that a second surface (204) of the base material (200) is oriented obliquely upward from the standard direction (S). Thereby, a reference direction (R) is oriented obliquely upward from the standard direction (S). Light from the light-emitting system (20) has standard chromaticity in the standard direction (S). In addition, the light from the light-emitting system (20) has first chromaticity and second chromaticity in a first side direction (S1) and a second side direction (S2), respectively, the first side direction (S1) and the second side direction (S2) being symmetric with respect to the standard direction (S). A difference between the first chromaticity and the standard chromaticity is smaller than a difference between the second chromaticity and the standard chromaticity.

  • Patent number: 10706833
    Abstract: The active noise control device detects noise, and delays a phase of a detected noise signal in a low frequency band. In a non-closed-type noise control device, since there occurs such a phenomenon that the phase of the noise signal advances in the low frequency band, the correction unit performs a correction to cancel the phase advance by delaying the phase. By outputting the noise reduction sound based on the phase-corrected noise signal, the noise is reduced.
