Pagination or Media Count:
A transducer shell assembly and bimodal transducer are provided. The transducer shell assembly has a hollow split tube such that a gap extends along its length to define first and second opposing edges. A locking mechanism can lock the first and second opposing edges in a fixed relationship to fix the gap. In terms of the bimodal transducer, an electromechanical driver is coupled to an inside surface of the tube. A first frequency of operation is defined when the gap is fixed, while a second frequency of operation is defined when the first and second opposing edges are free to move with respect to one another.
