A single loudspeaker measurement indicates how a loudspeaker sounds at a single point in space. This is often not representative of the response of the loudspeaker across a variety of radiation angles or locations in a room. Combining multiple loudspeaker measurements into a single response can be useful in understanding the average behaviour of the loudspeaker and can be useful when designing crossovers, in multi-way loudspeakers, to work relatively well across a range of dispersion angles.
Averager is a tool for combining or averaging multiple loudspeaker measurements into a single measurement. Features include:
- different gain modes for matching measurement levels,
- bulk delay adjustment,
- automatic and manual time alignment,
- different averaging mathematical techniques (including complex and power),
- transfer function and impulse response views, and
- a variety of export file formats.
