Low-Frequency Extension of Gated Loudspeaker Measurements

The free-field response of a loudspeaker system can be approximated through a gated measurement, made in a sufficiently large space. The frequency resolution is nominally determined by the time gap between the direct sound and the first reflection, but the actual low-frequency accuracy of gated measurements is reduced also by the group delay of the loudspeaker itself. The group delay at low frequencies may cause a large fraction of the energy sound radiation to be cut off, underestimating the low-frequency response. A method is presented to estimate the approximate low-frequency response from the impedance measurement of the loudspeaker and to use the response to pre-process the acoustical measurement to improve the accuracy of the gated measurement.
