Tapered tube impedance matching underwater voice communicator with bubble silencer

Image Number 2 for United States Patent #4527657.

An underwater voice communicator in which the preferred embodiment comprises a pair of tapered tubes in communication with a diver's mouth. The tubes are constructed of a material having a sound impedance similar to the sound impedance of water. Sound energy issuing from the mouth of a diver is reflected down the length of the tapered tubes to an area of the tube that concentrates the sound for injection into the surrounding water.
