As kids, you in all probability remember doing the experiment in school with two plastic cups or tins and a chunk of string. One person would communicate into the cup and the sound would vibrate alongside the string, reaching the other cup so that the opposite particular person could hear it.

The plate will vibrate backwards and forwards, inflicting voltage to be carried alongside a set of electric wires, which is then reconverted and amplified into the receiver at the different end.
