A speaker driver is an individual transducer that converts electrical energy to sound waves. Drivers come in different sizes and modes, but generally, you'll find three types: tweeter driver, which handles the high-frequency treble range (above 2,000 Hz), and midrange driver: which handles the midrange frequencies (200 Hz to 2,000 Hz).
