Currently available electroacoustic prediction software represents far-field polar responses of loudspeakers by the magnitude of their directivity patterns. It is shown that the loudspeaker's phase response is necessary for increasing the accuracy of predictions at any frequency resolution. A method for accurately representing a loudspeaker's far-field magnitude and phase response for prediction purposes is presented.
