Closed and Vented Loudspeaker Alignments that Compensate for Nearby Room Boundaries
The purpose of this paper is to present a method of designing loudspeakers in which the presence of the nearest three boundaries are taken into account in the design of the low frequency speaker. The paper will first review the effects of the three boundaries. It will then discuss how these effects might be compensated for. The paper will then examine the low frequency behavior of loudspeaker drive units, and make suggestions for new alignments, which take account of the boundaries. It will conclude with some simulation examples.
