A Spectrogram Display for Loudspeaker Transient Response

Document Thumbnail

A spectrogram is a two-dimensional depiction of a waveform or transfer function in which frequency is depicted on one axis and time is depicted on the other. The level is plotted against frequency and time by using a color or gray scale. If the time resolution is constant, the display is usually referred to as a Fourier transform spectrogram. If the time resolution is scaled to the frequency, it is usually referred to as a wavelet transform spectrogram. In this paper, we present a novel and efficient method for calculating a wavelet transform spectrogram, which is optimized for the analysis of loudspeaker transient response. The new method employs complex convolution of the frequency response, rather than explicit time domain windowing, or the wavelet transform.
