A New, Psychoacoustically More Correct Way of Measuring Loudspeaker Frequency Responses
The frequency response of the listener's ears is the most important property of the loudspeaker-listening room combination. Unfortunately, conventional free-field and power response measurements do not give a correct picture of the time dependent frequency response a listener actually will hear in a normal listening room. A new method of loudspeaker frequency response measuring in the listening room is presented. The method is based on psychoacoustical experimental data in order to simulate the human hearing mechanism. Finally, measurement results are presented and compared to conventional measurements and listening results.
