The need for high-resolution loudspeaker data is evaluated in detail, in particular complex data in their original impulse response or frequency response formats, and how a new data format proposed earlier can be used for storing this and other information required to describe a complex loudspeaker system adequately. Prediction results for several loudspeaker models are compared based on different spectral and spatial resolutions. Calculations are also compared against measurements for different loudspeaker types, such as multiway loudspeakers, clusters, and line-array systems. Finally the advantages of more precise predictions are discussed with respect to increasing requirements regarding computer performance and data storage.
