Practical Applications of Chameleon Subwoofer Arrays
Spatiotemporal variations of the low-frequency response in a closed-space are predominantly caused by room-modes. Chameleon subwoofer arrays (CSA) were developed to minimize this variance over a listening area using multiple independently-controllable source components and calibrated with one-time measurements. Although CSAs are ideally implemented using hybrid (multiple source component) subwoofers, they can alternatively be realized using conventional subwoofers. This capability is exploited in this work where various CSA configurations are tested using commercially-available subwoofers in a small-sized listening room. Spectral and temporal evaluation is performed using tone-burst and maximum length sequence (MLS) measurements. The systems are implemented with practicality in mind, keeping the number of subwoofers and calibration measurements to a minimum while maintaining correction benefits.
