Wild Boar Audio asked the question, "How could a loudspeaker be designed that would mimic the music as produced in nature on a motorcycle?" Conventional speakers or Direct-radiating speakers generally have poor dispersion since they only provide good sound quality in a small area, or "sweet spot." We created and would like to introduce you to our Omni-Radiating loudspeaker that when installed produces the most enveloping soundfield like never before.


  • Drag Specialties part #4405-0482
  • 200 watt, 6.5”, 4 ohm, 2 way speaker system
  • Real carbon fiber woofer cone
  • 40mm wide, high temp voice coil
  • 32mm titanium dome tweeter
  • Tweeter housed in “Omni-Radiating Reflector
  • Poly Thermal Coefficient Tweeter Protection
  • Studio Grade Passive Crossover Parts Built In
  • Built In Locking “Barbs” Secure Factory Speaker Wires
  • Large Magnet With Multiple Cooling Vents
  • Specifically Designed To Work In Small Factory Speaker Cabinets
  • One Piece Design For Easy Installation
  • 5 year Warranty

Omni-Radiating Reflector Explained

There are two main components that make up the Omni-Radiating Reflector, and both are crucial to its operation.
Firstly, sound waves act in a similar manner to light in that they can be reflected off hard surfaces. A concave- or bowl-shaped surface will tend to concentrate any sound waves hitting it at a point in the centre of the bowl while a convex (turn that bowl upside down) surface will disperse sound waves in all directions. As the wavelengths of the frequencies being reproduced by a driver become small relative to the size of the driver's diaphragm, the dispersion of the driver begins to decrease until such time that it is only radiating from a small point at the centre of the driver, otherwise known as ‘beaming.’
We normally sidestep this problem by crossing over to a smaller driver (tweeter) at a frequency where beaming from the driver is not yet occurring. However, even before severe beaming takes place, the driver's natural dispersion begins to narrow. We designed a convex reflector with the natural radiation properties of a cone mid-woofer at the same time.
With the convex reflector placed centrally above the woofer, the frequencies where the woofer is starting to beam will be reflected off of the convex surface and uniformly dispersed. We are actually using the limited dispersion of the woofer at high frequencies to aid in the overall dispersion of the loudspeaker.
From a measurement standpoint, the off-axis measurements of a loudspeaker using the Omni-Radiating Reflector will be very similar, both in the horizontal and vertical planes. The confirmation of this is that the total-radiated sound power (an averaging of horizontal and vertical frequency responses measured 180 degrees) is nearly identical to the on-axis response.
The Omni-Radiating Reflector is a technology that allows us to create a perceived soundfield that is very close to what we hear in reality.
And isn't mimicking reality the end goal of all loudspeaker designs?
