Disruption through complete re-invention

By completely re-inventing the core of the driver – which has remained unchanged for at least 75 years – it is finally possible to think of radically new form factors and immense sound quality improvements. The technologies inside the Mayht driver solve many challenges that conventional drivers can not. The information on this page will further introduce you to the Mayht technologies. As time advances, we will reveal more and more details of the technologies that drive the disruption.


6 Technologies

‘A paradigm shifting set of technologies’

The Mayht technologies have come in to existence through extensive research over several years. It started out with a new motor; this new motor required a new suspension and membrane architecture. After hundreds of simulations, thousands of prototypes and a lot of testing, the portfolio currently consists of 6 patents, all necessary to create the Mayht driver with it’s immense benefits.


Distributed force exertion

Every Mayht driver has multiple motors. By symmetrically distributing the motors across the membrane, space can be freed up behind the membrane. This space can be used to make the driver more shallow, and – because of our patented motor configuration – keep sensitivity at the right level.


All the sound, no resonances

The Mayht driver is a single driver with two membranes moving in opposing directions. This is the most efficient way to increase air displacement capability and prevent mechanical resonance of an enclosure. All the benefits of the dual opposing principal, without increasing depth by having to mount two drivers back-to-back.


Controlled high linearity

At maximum excursion, the membranes almost touch each other. Because of that, there is not any space for a conventional secondary suspension. The Mayht driver contains a distributed suspension technology for maximum control, reliability and linearity of movement.


High excursion, low profile

Conventional driver surrounds require a big roll to facilitate high excursion. A Mayht driver uses an alternative architecture which handles the XY surface of the driver 90% more efficiently: high excursion without making the frontal surface of the driver any bigger.


Easy assembly, highly reliable

To connect the multiple motors as efficient as possible, Mayht drivers contain a specifically designed part which is light weight and highly rigid. This part also makes it possible to reduce the assembly steps, allowing fast and cost effective manufacturing.


Air pressure compensation

A driver enclosure creates air pressure that works against the movement of the membranes. The higher the pressure, the higher the required energy input in the driver. Mayht invented the Negative Compliance which works against the air pressure. The result is that the membranes move as if there isn’t any air pressure.


‘A dual driver in a single woofer form factor’

Every conventional driver has a quite limited excursion compared to the depth of the driver – and with that, limited air displacement and bass response. For example, if a driver is 10 cm deep, the linear one-way excursion is about 8mm. This is a 1:12.5 excursion-to-depth ratio.

With bass speakers, it is always best to do a back-to-back driver design to prevent unwanted resonances of the enclosure. The reason we only see this with big subwoofers is the fact that with conventional drivers it always becomes a very deep and big speaker product.

Mayht technology can reach a 1:1.5 excursion-to-depth ratio because of it’s unique patented motor and membrane technology: one Mayht driver with two membranes fits in the size of a conventional driver which only has one membrane. Because the Mayht driver has two membranes, the total Sd is doubled, further increasing the maximum air displacement. Because of the flatness, the Mayht technology is useful for all audio applications: TV, soundbars, Bluetooth speakers, Automotive, Professional Audio and so forth.
