The Influence of Room Boundaries on Loudspeaker Power Output

Document Thumbnail

Although it is well known tht nearby boundaries affect the radiation angle (and thereby the power output) of small acoustic sources, loudspeaker systems generally have not been designed with due regard for these effects. Conventional loudspeakers oriented in typical use positions in living rooms exhibit variations of the order of 5 to 12 dB in low-frequency power output. The problem is examined quantitatively and some practical measures for improvement are suggested.
