Abstract: The objective of this study is to numerically investigate the temperature and heat transfer characteristics of the voice coil for a woofer with and without bobbins using the thermal equivalent heat conduction models. The temperature and heat transfer characteristics of the main components of the woofer were analyzed with input powers ranging from 5 W to 60 W. The numerical results of the voice coil showed good agreement within ±1% of the data by Odenbach (2003). The temperatures of the voice coil and its units for the woofer without the bobbin were 6.1% and 5.0% on average, respectively; lower than those of the woofer with the bobbin. However, at an input power of 30 W for the voice coil, the temperatures of the main components of the woofer without the bobbin were 40.0% higher on average than those of the woofer obtained by Lee et al. (2013).
