    An element in speaker design that is used to improve the bass response of smaller cabinets. Consisting of a diaphragm that resembles a woofer, but without the voice coil, it is meant to move sympathetically with the energy delivered by the active woofer. While providing a greater bass response, the diaphragm is hard to control and can lead to overtly boomy bass response.
