Modeling of Nonlinearities in Electrodynamic Loudspeakers

Document Thumbnail

This paper proposes a model of the non-linearities in an electro-dynamic loudspeaker based on Volterra series decomposition and taking into account the thermal effects affecting the electrical parameters when temperature increases. This model will be used to predict nonlinearities taking place in a loudspeaker and their evolution as the loudspeaker is used for a long time and/or at high power rates and its temperature increases. A temperature increase of the voice coil will cause its series resistance value to increase, therefore reducing the current flowing in the loudspeaker. This phenomenon is known as power compression.
