Well I realize you know hardly anything about electronics, Peter, but
even you have to admit that a speaker makes a much better input
transducer than a microphone is likely to make an output transducer, if
only because of the lower power-handling capacity.
I was going to add to my folly by chuntering on about electrostatic
microphones until I remembered that you can also buy electrostatic speakers.
