T1 - Electroacoustic Measurements

Christopher J. Struck, CJS Labs - San Francisco, CA, USA

This tutorial focuses on applications of electroacoustic measurement methods, instrumentation, and data interpretation as well as practical information on how to perform appropriate tests. Linear system analysis and alternative measurement methods are examined. The topic of simulated free field measurements is treated in detail. Nonlinearity and distortion measurements and causes are described. Last, a number of advanced tests are introduced.

This tutorial is intended to enable the participants to perform accurate audio and electroacoustic tests and provide them with the necessary tools to understand and correctly interpret the results.
