Loudspeaker Measurements and Modeling

  • John M. Eargle


Loudspeaker measurement technology has grown significantly in the last two decades since digital signal processing has come on the scene. In earlier days, we had mechanically driven sine wave oscillators operating in synchronism with moving paper chart recorders, many of which are just now winding down their useful existence. With specific regard to loudspeakers, we are still learning just what performance attributes need to be measured, and to what degree of detail.
