Low-Frequency Modal Equalization of Loudspeaker-Room Responses

In a room with strong low-frequency modes the control of excessively long decays is problematic or impossible with conventional passive means. In this paper we present a systematic methodology for active modal equalization able to correct the modal decay behavior of a loudspeaker room system. Two methods of modal equalization are proposed. The first method modifies the primary sound such that modal decays are controlled. The second method uses separate primary and secondary radiators and controls modal decays with sound fed into the secondary radiator. Case studies of the first method of implementation are presented.
