Loudspeaker Phase Characteristics and Time Delay Distortion: Part 1

Document Thumbnail

A technique is described for measurement of the complete frequency response of a loudspeaker, including amplitude and phase. A concept of time delay is introduced which provides a physical description of the effect of phase and amplitude variations as a frequency-dependent spatial smearing of the effective acoustic position of a loudspeaker.
