Lumped Loudspeaker Driver

This is a model of a moving-coil loudspeaker where a lumped parameter analogy represents the behavior of the electrical and mechanical speaker components. The Thiele-Small parameters (small-signal parameters) serve as input to the lumped model, which is represented by an Electric Circuit ... Read More

Car Cabin Acoustics - Frequency Domain Analysis

In this model the acoustics of a car cabin is analyzed 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 ... 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

Ray Acoustics with 3D Source Extracted from a Vented Loudspeaker Enclosure

This model shows how the source directivity and phase can be extracted from a 3D FEM model of a loudspeaker (in this case, the Loudspeaker Driver in a Vented Enclosure model). The source characteristics are then used to define a ray acoustics source with the same spatial properties. 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

Baffled Membrane

Learn how to use the Acoustic-Shell Interaction interface in this tutorial example of a thin vibrating membrane set in an infinite baffle. This example demonstrates how to model the acoustic interaction between a vibrating membrane and the surrounding air. In order to focus on the ... 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

Eigenmodes of a Room

When designing a concert hall, it is extremely important to take the resonances into account. For a clear and neutral sound, the eigenfrequencies should be evenly spread through the registers. For the home stereo owner, who cannot actually change the shape of his living room, another ... Read More

Acoustics of a Living Room

Prevent shaking windows and enhance the sound experience by careful positioning of the loudspeakers in your room. This tutorial analyzes the low frequency response of a living room to the woofer units of two loudspeakers, and solves for the eigenfrequencies of the room. The room geometry ... 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
