    Question: Is it possible to get these to emit a single spark at a time? Perhaps with a timing circuit or something? I’m thinking of trying to use one to record impulse responses for convolution reverb. Seems like this would be (only slightly) less scary than using something like a marx generator. Which also would be difficult to create a single spark with, and I’d have to worry about discharging caps.

    SMD stands for Surface Mount Device. [edit] LOL, I see now, In the Description: “Description: Our Surface-Mount Display (SMD) Simon Says kit is a great challenge…” Looks like we need a typo fix.

    Found another datasheet with readable graphs: SM-24

    Cool, thanks for the info. I’ve seen some super powerful surface transducers with similar designs (except they had 2 symmetrical magnets, and a pair of voice coils). This would probably work great for recording explosions. Low frequencies travel right along the ground, so burying it shallow, or embedding it in something heavy on the ground would probably work well. I may have to look into getting one to play around with.

    Actually, according to the (incredibly low resolution) pictures on the datasheet. This appears to be a dynamic microphone. I wonder how well it would operate as a low frequency speaker?
