LCD's, or flat panel monitors have been in the spotlight as
the essential space saving computer component. One key part
that is constantly overlooked for space saving are the speakers.
Most of today's speakers are built using the cone type design,
which can be fairly large and can have a big desktop foot print.
Now, with the introduction of a new type of speaker, the flat
panel speaker, we can buy quality speakers that can be used
to save space too. There are only a few makers of these flat
panel speakers, among them is the company called Benwin. Benwin's
latest in the flat panel speaker market is the BW2000 desktop
a completely new technology, these are one of the worlds first
FLAT panel speakers. Here is an explanation of this technology
speakers create sound by causing cone-shaped speakers to move
in and out in a high-speed piston-like motion. Benwin speakers
use an exciter disk mathematically positioned on the back of
a flat surface. This exciter sends an electrical current through
the flat panel, causing a complex series of vibrations in all
planes over the entire panel. The Benwin speaker system includes
a compact powered sub-woofer unit, which also incorporates the
volume, tone and power controls and a headphone jack, to increase
the definition of the bass sounds."
