Previous work presented the radiation pattern measurement of an electric guitar amplifier densely sampled spatially on a 3-D grid. Results were presented of the directionally dependent spectral features on-axis with the driver, as a function of left/right position, and distance. This paper examines the directionally dependent features of the amplifier measured at the center of the amplifier, in relationship to the height and distance placement of the microphone. Differences between acoustically measured and estimated frequency responses are used to study the change in the acoustic field. This work results in a better understanding of the spectral directivity of the electric guitar amplifier in all three planes.
