In the auditioning of Distributed Mode Loudspeakers (DML), listeners have remarked on the position independence of sound quality. This study compares the subjective loudness properties of DML and conventional loudspeakers. Auditory modelling of objective measurements and the results of psychometric experiments to determine the perceived loudness are presented in this paper. Investigations into the psychoacoustic mechanisms to explain the phenomena are discussed.
