W6 - The Power of Loudspeaker Models

With the progress in loudspeaker modeling, new parameters are introduced that describe essential properties of loudspeakers more concisely. This workshop gives an overview of linear, nonlinear, and thermal models and their associated parameters. It will also show the practical application for loudspeaker design, diagnostics, system development, and active loudspeaker control. The validity of the models and reproducibility of parameters are discussed and illustrated with practical demonstrations. The workshop reveals the border line between established theory and unmodeled but significant effects, which are subject of further research.
