The main feature of my invention consists in the employment of one or more magnets acting upon a diaphragm or other sound-producing body, and so arranged and connected 15 that the current passes axially through them, an adjusting device being provided to vary or regulate the extent of the space through which the force is exerted. I have found that when this is done the vibrations of the diaphragm 20 correspond with the variations in the axial current, and sound is produced in accordance with the vibrations at the transmitter, the action being due, in my opinion, to variations in magnetic intensity. I have obtained the best 25 results by arranging two or more magnets in line, with their ends in close proximity, such ends being connected by suitable conductors of the current. The magnets are connected in circuit, the current passing through them 30 from end to end, or from ceuterto ends, or ends to center in both directions. Thediaphragmpiston or other suitable sound-producing body may carry one of the magnets, or it may have a soft iron armature attached to it, if it is of 35...
