Numerical criteria for describing the frequency response of a loudspeaker are discussed with respect to their usefulness of numerical optimization of loudspeakers. Bandpass and transmission-line enclosures are used as examples to illustrate how bandwidth, flatness of response, smoothness of response, etc., can be defined in a numerically efficient manner, using similar definitions of the criteria for these loudspeaker types that are very different in their characteristics.:
