A transducer (1) for producing sound in response to an electrical signal comprises an actuator (2) with a magnet (4) and a coil (5), and a vibration surface (3), for example a loudspeaker cone. The actuator and the vibration surface are mechanically coupled. The transducer (1) is designed to operate at substantially its resonance frequency (f0). This results in a very high transducer efficiency, which is particularly relevant for rendering low audio frequencies.
