Why and How to Measure Distortion in Electroacoustic Transducers
In the never-ending quest for better sound transmission, reinforcement, and reproduction, the electronics has been extensively analyzed for distortion. Distortion in electroacoustic transducers, while typically several orders of magnitude greater, has often been neglected or not even specified because it has been difficult to measure and interpret. With a basic understanding of transducer limitations, some knowledge of human hearing, and the application of different distortion test methods, electroacoustic transducer distortion becomes easier to measure and assess.
