The agenda and the report of the previous meeting, 2003-10-11, were accepted as written.
AES-X83 Loudspeaker Polar Radiation Measurements Suitable for Room Acoustics
The latest draft, X83-PTD-0400510.PDF was reviewed in detail. All changes and corrections that were added to this draft are highighted in yellow.
It is imperative that this Standard be completely compatible with AES2-R and AES-X72 (SC-04-03) where work is continuing apace. AES-X83 will be a subset of AES2 as pertains to room acoustic modeling programs. Examples of required compatibility are data file structure and definition of center of rotation and of cabinet reference point.
This draft has been posted to the document site already, is ready for approval and will be discussed at the next meeting.
AES-X108 Measurement of the acoustical and electroacoustic characteristics of personal computers
No activity - recommended for retirement. Chairman activities needed.
AES-X122 Loudspeaker Radiation and Acoustical Surface Data Measurements: How They Apply to Usage Environments
No activity - continue postponement until AES-X83 is complete.
The next meeting is scheduled to be held in conjunction with the AES 117th Convention in San Francisco, US, 2004-10.
