The two most noticeable types of distortion in an audio signal path-frequency and nonlinear-are frequently analyzed by researchers and developers in terms of auditory perception. The effect of transient distortion, though insufficiently studied, is evident in subjective listening tests when comparing loudspeakers with similar frequency response and no audible nonlinear distortions. In the present study we conducted loudspeaker measurements and subjective evaluations to define the critical factors based on the loudspeaker’s electromechanical characteristics that affect transient distortion and determined relations between the factors’ values and subjective scores.
