Hi, I'm sure the question is quite naive but I'm having a hard time getting around the fact that the sound of a symphony orchestra can be emitted from a speaker. That a large collection of sounds of vastly different tonality, playing simultaneously, can be reproduced by a single sound source. I have a vague idea that the combination of sounds forms a composite waveform and then that is reproduced by the speaker-cone but it escapes me how all those timbres can be expressed at the same time just by a speaker cone moving back and forth with a certain amplitude and frequency (albeit constantly changing). It strikes me that a humble speaker just doesn't have what it takes to pull off such a feat, but yet the sound of the orchestra pours forth. Could anybody shine some light on the matter? I find it hard to move down from my tree house and rejoin society while this question haunts me.
