Full Room Equalization at Low Frequencies with Asymmetric Loudspeaker Arrangements

For rectangular rooms with symmetric loudspeaker arrangements, full room equalization can be achieved at low frequencies, as demonstrated by previous research. The method is based on generating a plane wave that propagates along the room. However, often the room is not rectangular, and/or a symmetric loudspeaker setup cannot be assured, leading to a deteriorated equalization performance. In addition, the performance of the method drops significantly above a cutoff frequency where a plane wave cannot be generated. These problems are addressed by the proposed method by prescribing only the magnitude in the control points, while the phase is determined by an iterative optimization process starting from the plane wave solution. A true ``magnitude-only' variant of the method is also presented. Comparison is given to the plane-wave based methods by introducing asymmetries to the loudspeaker setup in a simulated environment, showing that the new methods result in smaller average magnitude deviations compared to the previous plane-wave based approach.
