Digital Equalization of Automotive Sound Systems Employing Spectral Smoothed FIR Filters

Document Thumbnail

In this paper we investigate about the usage of spectral smoothed FIR filters for equalizing a car audio system. The target is also to build short filters that can be processed on DSP processors with limited computing power. The inversion algorithm is based on the Nelson-Kirkeby method and on independent phase and magnitude smoothing, by means of a continuous phase method as Panzer and Ferekidis showed. The filter is aimed to create a "target" frequency response, not necessarily flat, employing a little number of taps and maintaining good performances everywhere inside the car's cockpit. As shown also by listening tests, smoothness and the choice of the right frequency response increase the performances of the car audio systems
