Micro Suspension Part Measurement (MSPM)
The Micro Suspension Part Measurement (MSPM) is designed for the measurement of the small and large signal parameters of small suspension parts (micro speakers, headphones, tweeters, microphones). The suspension part is glued or clamped into a panel and clamped onto a sealed pressure chamber. The diaphragm is deflected by the sound pressure generated by a sensitive midrange transducer as used in horn loaded PA equipment. The parameters Resonance frequency, Q-factor, stiffness, moving mass and mechanical resistance are determined dynamically by a simultaneous measurement of displacement and sound pressure.

The MSPM Bench is a small pressure chamber designed to produce high sound pressures. It is used to pneumatically excite a clamped small diaphragm passively to monitor its vibration behavior. A sealed outlet is used for a microphone to measure the sound pressure in the chamber directly.
