Two Decades of Sound Diffusor Design and Development, Part 2: Prediction, Measurement, and Characterization
Peter D'Antonio and Trevor Cox 1075
Methods for measuring and predicting the scattered polar sound distribution by using boundary-element methods and maximum-length-sequence stimuli are reviewed in this, the second part of a paper on diffusors. An extensive list of references is included as well as a glossary of acoustical terms. The supporting illustrations give the reader a broad outline of the comprehensive methods used to make these measurements of diffusor performance.

Frequency-Domain Equalization of Audio Systems Using Digital Filters, Part 2: Examples of Equalization
Alexander Potchinkov 1092
Numerical examples of digital-domain equalizers are presented in this, the second half of a two-paper presentation. The author has shown the advantages that accrue from equalization by digital filter means. Some related subjects are reviewed which include efficient multirate filter realization, parametric modeling, and the comparison of recursive and nonrecursive digital filters.

Orthogonal Sequence Modulated Phase Reflection Gratings for Wide-Band Diffusion
James A. S. Angus and Claire I. McManmon 1109
A technique, which uses two basic quadratic residue diffusors of different lengths, can remove the lobe narrowing that normally occurs when two diffusors are concatenated. An extended frequency performance range and a smoother diffusion response are achieved using the authors' composite design criteria. By employing these composite design sequences, the diffusion performance approaches that of a single sequence diffusor.

Comparison of Two Methods for Measurement of Horn Input Impedance
Hans Schurer, Peter Annema, Hans-Elias de Bree, Cornelis H. Slump, and Otto E. Herrmann 1119
After comparing the acoustic horn impedance by two discrete measurement methods, the authors have concluded that horn impedance measurement is performed faster, easier, and more accurately by direct measurement using a microflown. It is shown that this is a valuable tool by which horns and other acoustical structures can be approximated and that their parameters can be tuned easily to obtain correspondence between measurement and model.
