The article identifies different components and specifications to be considered in selecting loudspeakers such as frequency range, sensitivity, and power handling. Loudspeakers often have at least two drivers, which create acoustic energy from electrical signals. Crossover networks, classified as active and passive, divide the frequency range of the electrical signal to suit the loudspeaker's drivers. Certain types of amplifiers and enclosures are appropriate for different models of loudspeakers.
