As a one-way system, these loudspeakers are called dual cone loudspeakers. In this design, the paper cone placed in the center of the midrange driver enhances the dispersion of high tones. Coaxial speakers have an extensive frequency range from relatively low tones all the way up to the treble range and are therefore also used as full-range


Coaxial speakers have the advantage that they reproduce a point source of sound like no other.
