Ever since the invention of the electrodynamic loudspeaker there has been a need for greater acoustical output, especially at low frequencies. From a manufacturer’s point of view it has been desirable for a long time to reduce the size of the loudspeaker (and cabinet). These two demands are physically contradictory. Options are being offered to evoke the illusion of a higher low-frequency response of the loudspeaker while the power radiated by the loudspeaker at those low frequencies remains… Expand
Improving percieved bass and reconstruction of high frequencies for band limited signals
Bandwidth extenstion methods are required in systems that playback bandlimited signals (e.g. telephone, MP3) or that are not capable of reproducing signals with a large bandwidth (small orExpand
Loudspeaker Frequency Response Measurements and Bass Reproduction
Ways to solve the low-frequency reproduction problem of smaU-, and mediwn-sized loudspeakers by means of psychoacoustic bass processing are proposed as discussions at the end of this paper. Expand

Part 1 : Two-to-Five Channel Sound Processing 1
Today and tomorrow's audio and video, portable audio and multi-media applications put increasing demands on sound reproduction techniques. On one hand there is a need for reductions in both cost andExpand
Applications of DSP for sound reproduction improvement
Various examples will be given, such as increasing the perceived bass response of loudspeakers, and increasing the number of loudspeaker channels (converting stereo to multichannel sound), and the same percept can be simulated over headphones. Expand
Basso-Forte DSP Product Proposal
The BASSO-FORTE is introduced as a Digital Audio App designed to enhance the perceived sound level in low frequencies through the loudspeakers of a phone. Expand


A new method for the design of crossover filters
A new method is presented for the design and evaluation of loudspeaker crossover filters. The desired system characteristic can be prescribed by a (complex) acoustic transfer function rather than anExpand
Some parameters influencing the perceptibility of pitch.
For white noise with its attenuated repetition and for sequences of pulse pairs with each second pulse attenuated, the threshold of perceptibility of pitch has been determined as a function of the pulse‐pair interval T, the sensation level SL, the bandpass center frequency f0, and the delay time τ.

Pitch of the Residue
The residue is defined as the joint perception of a number of Fourier components. Depending on circumstances outside the scope of this paper, it has a pronounced pitch. The consequences of thisExpand

The biplot graphic display of matrices with application to principal component analysis
SUMMARY Any matrix of rank two can be displayed as a biplot which consists of a vector for each row and a vector for each column, chosen so that any element of the matrix is exactly the inner productExpand
Multidimensional scaling by optimizing goodness of fit to a nonmetric hypothesis
Multidimensional scaling is the problem of representingn objects geometrically byn points, so that the interpoint distances correspond in some sense to experimental dissimilarities between objects.Expand
