Abstract

The self sealing speaker gasket is constructed of thin mylar (005" Max) in a cone shape and glued to the speaker. The large diameter of the cone shaped gasket is approximately 5% larger than the diameter of the cylindrical speaker carder. (See Fig. 1.) During insertion of the speaker with the gasket to the speaker carrier, the large diameter of the gasket is compressed to the size of the carrier and generates enough tension between the gasket and the carrier to provide and maintain good sealing between them.
