AES-X250, a project to specify the measurement of maximum linear peak SPL using noise has bee started. It will be developed in SC-04-03-A under the direction of chair Merlijn vanVeen.
The standard will specify a method for measuring the maximum linear peak SPL of a loudspeaker driver or system. It will use a mathematically derived test signal that effectively emulates the dynamic characteristics of music as a function of frequency as well as its spectral content.
The SC-04-03-A task group will meet at the NY AES Convention to begin development of this standard. All interested parties are invited to attend. Interested parties may also join SC-04-03-A and participate remotely via teleconference and receive updates by email.
