A tweeter baffle plate 14 is attached to the upper surface of the upper housing 11 upward. The
tweeter 101 is attached upward to the baffle plate 14 for tweeter. A tweeter cabinet 111 is
configured by the space above the upper housing 11 divided by the tweeter baffle plate 14 and
the partition plate 11A. Further, a woofer baffle plate 15 is attached downward to the lower
surface of the lower housing 12. A woofer 102 is attached downward to the woofer baffle plate
15. A woofer cabinet 112 is constituted by a space under the upper housing 11 and the lower
housing 12 which are separated by the woofer baffle plate 15 and the partition plate 11A.
[0017]
A bass reflex port 16 is provided on the side of the upper housing 11 on the woofer cabinet 112
side. A bass reflex duct 17 is connected to the bass reflex port 16 toward the inside of the woofer
cabinet 112. The bass reflex duct 17 is bent downward inside the woofer cabinet 112, and has a
length for resonating at a low frequency.
[0018]
The upper housing 11 is covered with a cover 20 at the top and the side. The cover 20 is made of
a metal sheet of punched mesh. Because of the punched mesh, sound and light almost pass
through the cover 20, but a part of the light is reflected and diffused inside the cover 20. The
cover 20 has a side surface and an upper surface, and is in the shape of a tumbler that is turned
upside down. The outer diameter of the cover 20 is substantially the same as that of the lower
housing 12. Therefore, the speaker device 1 covered with the cover 20 has a substantially
cylindrical appearance as a whole.
[0019]
A diffuser 22 is provided inside the upper surface of the cover 20. The diffuser 22 is
substantially conical downward, and reflects the high-pitched sound emitted from the tweeter

101 in all directions. Further, the diffuser 22 is made of resin, and its surface is mirror-polished
by vapor deposition plating using hot stamp foil. Thus, not only voice but also light is reflected in
all directions.
[0020]
The woofer baffle plate 15 has three screw holes 15A protruding downward in a pole shape of a
predetermined height. The flat head screw 30 is screwed into the screw hole 15A from the back
surface of the diffuser 23. Due to the height of the screw 30 and the screw hole 15A, the diffuser
23 is provided apart from the woofer 102 by a predetermined distance. The diffuser 23 has a
substantially conical shape upward, and reflects or diffracts mid-bass sound emitted from the
woofer 102 in all directions.
[0021]
The speaker device 1 is vertically installed with the diffuser 23 as a base, as shown in FIG. That
is, the diffuser 23 doubles as the base of the speaker device 1. For this reason, the cushioning
material 31 is attached to the bottom surface in a ring shape. As a result, there is no need to
provide a separate leg, so the structure can be simplified and the installation area can be
reduced.
[0022]
A cover 32 is provided between the outer periphery of the diffuser 23 and the outer periphery of
the woofer baffle plate 15. The cover 32 is made of a metal thin plate of punched mesh, and
allows the sound emitted from the woofer 102 to pass through, but when the speaker device 1 is
installed on a table or the like, the user's finger or foreign object invades. To prevent.

housing 12 other than the operation panel 40 is covered with synthetic leather. The upper
housing 11 is made of resin, and the outer peripheral side is mirror-finished by hot stamp foil or
mirror-finished by vapor deposition plating.
[0025]
A diffusion ring 27 made of a milky white resin is provided on the tweeter baffle plate 14. The
diffusion ring 27 is formed in a ring shape so as to cover the tweeter baffle plate 14 so as not to
cover the tweeter 101. A light guide ring 26 and a light emitting diode (hereinafter referred to as
an LED) 25 are provided below the diffusion ring 26 and at the peripheral portion of the tweeter
baffle plate 14. The LEDs 25 are provided upward at two peripheral portions of the baffle plate
14. The light guide ring 26 is provided so as to cover the upper side of the LED 25 and
propagates the light of the point emission LED 25 around the entire ring to obtain a surface
emission effect. At a position facing the LED 25 of the light guide ring 26, a protrusion (not
shown) for introducing light of the LED 25 is formed. When the LED 25 is turned on, light is
introduced into the light guide ring 26 through the protrusion, and the light propagates around
the entire circumference of the light guide ring 26 and becomes bright. This light of the light
guide ring 26 also reaches the diffusion ring 27 and becomes bright as if the entire diffusion ring
27 were emitting light. In addition, since the diffuser 22 is provided on the upper surface of the
cover 20, the light does not pass directly upward and does not illuminate the ceiling.
[0026]
In addition, a waist light guide ring 29 is provided at the lower end of the outer periphery of the
upper housing 11 so as to be in contact with the flange 11C. LEDs 28 are provided at two places
on the upper end peripheral portion of the lower housing 12. A small hole is opened at a position
facing the LED 28 of the flange 11 C, and the light of the LED 28 is introduced into the light
guide ring 29. When the LED 28 is lit, light is introduced to the light guide ring 29 through the
small holes, and the entire light guide ring 29 becomes bright as if it were emitting light.
