The Perception of Sound Coloration Due to Resonances in Loudspeakers and Other Audio Components

Resonances appear to be the principal source of coloration in reproduced sound. A brief survey of the origins of resonances in the processes of sound recording and reproduction indicates that, while problems exist at all stages, those at the recording end can sometimes be the more serious. Experimental results describe the thresholds of audibility of resonances as a function of frequency, Q, relative amplitude, program material, listener hearing performance, loudspeaker directivity, and listening environment. The findings are discussed in terms of the measured amplitude and time responses of the systems under examination, and are compared with those from earlier studies.
