The psychoacoustic issues relevant to loudspeaker design are reviewed. These issues are discussed as they relate to the perceived spectral balance, transient response, localization, and spatial characteristics of consumer loudspeakers. A loudspeaker design deriving from acoustic and psychoacoustic considerations is preseented. The design achieves spatial and temporal control of the sound radiation and incorporates signal processing electronics. The design is shown to be justified using both subjective and objective testing.
