That'd be a good name for a girl singer: Anne Harmonic.

More ideas (with just enough to be clear which meaning)

  • Horn (speaker driver)
  • Termination (matching electrical properties at the end of a cable to avoid unwanted effects)
  • Stereo Image/Imaging
  • Monitoring (note existing reference to Foldback)
  • Zero-latency Monitoring

Added, along with Compression Driver.

Termination (matching electrical properties at the end of a cable to avoid unwanted effects)

Done... and I've tweaked the Transmission Line entry and added Characteristic Impedance, too.

Stereo Image/Imaging

Done.

Monitoring (note existing reference to Foldback)

Yep.

Zero-latency Monitoring

Done, with a linked entry for Latency-free monitoring.

Thanks for those.

Great,

You may have left out a word in the Horn entry between the first occurence of "in front of" and "transducer".
