Relative Influence of Spectral Bands in Horizontal Front Localization of White Noise

The relationship between horizontal-front localization and the energy in different spectral bands is investigated in this paper. Specifically, we tried to identify which spectral regions produced changes in the judgments of the position of a white noise, when each band was removed from the noise presented through a front loudspeaker and presented via side loudspeakers. These loudspeakers were set at left and right from the front-midsagittal plane of the listener. Participants were asked to assess whether the noise was coming from the front loudspeaker as bands were moved from front to side loudspeakers. Results from a pilot study suggested differences in the relative importance of spectral bands for horizontal-front localization.
