This paper focuses on reproducible low frequency ranges of electrodynamic loudspeaker drivers. The research findings lead to a guide that allows the optimal driver to be selected at the early stages of the design when the consumer electronic products such as home theater systems, digital TVs or PC speakers are being considered. The suggested frequency ranges are based on the acoustics and estimated from statistical data from 1,473 loudspeaker drivers of various sizes. In particular, the lower frequency limit is discussed together with the peak volume displacement which is closely related to the maximum reproducible sound pressure in a loudspeaker.
