We will use a custom magnet wire plotting tool for the Zund cutter to plot coils for audio speakers.

Two approaches: Coil-magnet, and coil-coil.

The coil-coil topology relies on coils to generate all magnetic fields, not just the time varying one.

The coil-magnet topology (planar magnetic) is used for some high end headphones.  It can produce significantly more force than coil-coil, even with very thin magnets.
