The AES75 standard, published in 2022, details a procedure for measuring maximum linear sound levels of a loudspeaker system or driver using a test signal called M-Noise. To measure maximum linear sound levels meaningfully and repeatably, a signal is required whose RMS and peak levels as functions of frequency have been shown to be representative of program material. M-Noise uniquely also features a relatively constant peak level as a function of frequency, so that the crest factor (peak level – RMS level) increases with frequency, which an analysis on a large variety of music and other content has revealed is an important additional characteristic of typical program material.
