My speakers have 7 drivers per side and I demand to be included.
The Auditorium 23 Solo Vox comes to mind with it's 100 Hz bottom end.
Single driver speakers can (and some must) have crossover components - mind you this is somewhat of a misnoner as the components are not crossing-over anything....more cleaning up the sound to acheive the desired response. Notch filters, baffle-step-compensation networks, etc...IMO if the speaker has more than a single driver it cannot be a single driver speaker!
And the Lord spake, saying, 'First shalt thou mount the Holy Driver. Then, shalt thou count to one. No more. No less. One shalt be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be one. Two shalt thou not count, neither count thou naught, excepting that thou then proceed to one.'Single driver speaker: ONE vibrating diaphragm per cabinet, no crossover.YES:Ed's Horn, Norh 3.0, computer speakers, lowthers, fostex headphones etc.NO: Zu Druid, Tannoy Coaxials, the above combined with a tweeter etc.The above combined with add-on tweeters or bass cabinets might be a single driver speaker based system but not a single driver speaker. If there is more than one driver per side it should not be called single. Full-range, extended, wideband, or something else, but just not single. Assuming stereo you could have a pair of single driver speakers and actually have two drivers total but if you've got four drivers in two cabinets don't call one side a single. The true, purist single driver speaker would actually be a mono system but I am not sure how many folks actually have one speaker sitting in the middle of their room.
