Loudspeaker Radiation: BEM Acoustics Tutorial

In this tutorial, the acoustic radiation pattern from a small generic loudspeaker is analyzed using the boundary element method (BEM). The loudspeaker is located on a small table above the floor and at a given distance from a wall. The model is set up using the Pressure Acoustics, ... Read More

Tweeter Dome and Waveguide Shape Optimization

A tweeter is a high frequency driver used in loudspeaker systems. An ideal tweeter will produce a constant sound pressure level at a given distance in front of the driver independently of frequency, that is, a flat response. Ideally the tweeter will also, to a certain degree, maintain ... Read More

Wax Guard Acoustics: Transfer Matrix Computation

In this tutorial, the acoustic properties of a wax guard are analyzed. A wax guard is a small perforated mesh used to protect the receiver (the miniature loudspeaker in a hearing aid) used for receiver-in-the-ear (RITE) or receiver-in-canal (RIC) hearing aids. Because of the very small ... Read More

Lumped Receiver Connected to Test Setup with a 0.4-cc Coupler

In this model a Knowles ED23146 receiver (miniature loudspeaker) is connected to a test set-up consisting of a 50 mm (1 mm diameter) earmold tube and a so-called 0.4-cc coupler. The receiver is modeled using a lumped spice network and connected to the finite element domain at the tube ... Read More

Balanced Armature Transducer - Frequency Domain Analysis

This is a full vibro-electroacoustic simulation of a balanced armature (BA) transducer (also known as a receiver in some industries) which is a high performance miniature loudspeaker often used in hearing aids and other in-ear audio products. The model is set up using a linear frequency ... Read More

Topology Optimization of a Magnetic Circuit

This model presents two examples of topology optimization of the magnetic circuit of a loudspeaker driver. A first optimization is used to find the design of a nonlinear iron pole piece and top plate that maximize the BL factor at the resting position (small displacements), while ... Read More

Midwoofer Harmonic Distortion Analysis with KLIPPEL Measurements new

An automotive midwoofer is modeled using the lumped parameter approach. The electrical and mechanical components are modeled using a lumped electric circuit, which is coupled to a finite element model for the acoustics using the Lumped Speaker Boundary feature. The large signal ... Read More

Car Cabin Acoustics — Frequency-Domain Analysis

This tutorial shows the analysis of a car cabin in order to study the performance of a sound system in the low to mid frequency range. The cabin is of a typical sedan interior, that is, the inside of a hard-top family car. The model studies the frequency response at the location of a ... Read More

Bessel Panel

The Bessel panel is a way to arrange a number of loudspeakers so that the angular sound distribution resembles that of a single speaker. This model combines five Bessel panels in the same pattern to approximate a purely radial sound field. The speakers are driven with different ... Read More

Headphone on an Artificial Ear

Headphones are closely coupled to the ear, and so it is not possible to measure their sensitivity in a classical acoustic free-field setup used for loudspeakers. The measurement requires the use of artificial heads and ears to accurately represent the usage conditions. This model shows ... Read More
