Loudspeaker-Room Adaptation for a Specific Listening Position using Information about the Complete Sound Field

A novel method is presented for equalizing a loudspeaker, for a specific listening position in order to compensate for an influence of the room in which it is positioned. The method is based on measuring the sound pressure in the listening position (focus position) and in at least 3 randomly selected positions scattered across the entire listening room (room positions). The measurement in the listening position holds information about the listener’s access to the sound field while the room positions hold information about the energy in the 3D sound field. The correction for the listening position is then bound by upper and lower gain limits calculated as a function of frequency from the information about the 3D sound field.
