Abstract
The objective of this study is to experimentally investigate the cooling performance characteristics with the consideration of the temperature variations of the enclosure of the 400W ferrofluid active speaker having both woofer and amplifier heat sinks. In order to do this, the heat sinks for both woofer and amplifier was designed ant applied to 400W ferrofluid active speaker. As a result, the cooling performance of the developed 400W ferrofluid active speaker was improved and the temperature of the enclosure after 120 min at steady state increased by $\small{2.8^{\circ}C}$ with the increase of the outdoor temperatures from $\small{25^{\circ}C}$ to $\small{29^{\circ}C}$. In addition, the overall sound pressure level of the developed 400W ferrofluid active speaker showed 111.8 dB and improved 1.9 dB higher than 109.9 dB of the existed speaker.
