Quick Overview

The ultra-small Dayton Audio DAEX-9-4SM Skinny Mini exciter allows you to add audio to products and projects you never imagined possible.  This exciter can fit almost anywhere as it measuring in at only 0.5″ wide by 1″ long and just 0.25″ deep. This exciter is also perfect for creating haptic feedback systems.

Product Highlights

• Can fit almost anywhere due to its extremely small design
• The unique suspension creates high excursion for surprisingly powerful response
• Pre-applied 3M™ VHB™ adhesive for a durable and quick installation
• A proprietary 9 mm voice coil and rare-earth neodymium motor
• 4 ohms impedance for use with small, Class D amplifiers

Product Description

Dayton Audio’s DAEX-9-4SM Skinny Mini exciter will let you add haptic (tactile) feedback or audio to even the smallest of projects. The 9 mm Skinny Mini exciter is a perfect option when adding audio to small art projects and models or designing pocket sized personal speakers. At only 0.5″ wide by 1″ long, this exciter is even perfect for use in virtual reality haptic feedback systems such as headsets and gloves.
A neodymium magnet is employed to create maximum magnetic flux around the proprietary voice coil for increased sensitivity when you compare it to similar sized exciters. This then reduces power requirements and makes it possible to use very small audio amplifiers, without giving up total output. The unique suspension is capable of high physical excursion to allow this extremely lightweight and small exciter to deliver an incredible amount of force whilst still remaining linear.
Two PCB solder points keep installation and wiring as compact as possible. To ensure maximum acoustic energy transfer between the transducer and the surface to which it is attached, 3M VHB (Very High Bond) adhesive is pre-applied… just peel and stick.

Note: An exciter’s frequency response and sensitivity are completely dependent on the exciter’s designated surface. Thinner, smaller materials will tend to be louder and create a mid/tweeter response. Thicker, larger materials (with multiple exciters) will be slightly quieter but result in a more full-range sound.
