  • Patent number: 10433049
    Abstract: A sound-reproducing device has a DSP and a ?Com performing a predetermined calculation to an input signal, and an AMP amplifying the calculated signal and outputting the signal to a speaker unit. The DSP and the ?Com cuts a part of a reverse characteristic of a frequency characteristic of the speaker unit in a low frequency, and superimposes the reverse characteristic on the input signal. The sound-reproducing device can overcome a shortage of low sound during reproduction of low to medium volume in the speaker unit having a relatively small diameter, and can keep reproduction sound quality without loss of the reproduction sound quality during reproduction of large volume.
