Indice de performance

Quelques personnes ont demandé si une note de performance, plus simple que la lecture des graphique, serait possible. J'ai donc ajouté un indice de performance de 1 à 10 dans le graphe S4. Plus

Les mesures

Category: Les mesures

For many people, most curves and graphs are not so easy to understand so some of you have asked about a simple performance rating. We have tested the ratings proposed by Sean Olive in AES papers 6113 and 6190 but for some reasons, it was not totally satisfying. Those ratings are based on anechoic room measurements extended to Predicted In Room results. With our method, we only measure InRoom values and we have to quantify performance based only on those real measurements.

Les indices sont calculé à partir de :

  • SM_IRR SMoothness of InRoom Response between 125 and 11500Hz : the proposal of Olive is not very intuitive (Pearson coefficient) and this value is not used by us
  • NBD Narrow Band Deviation of InRoom Response between 125 and 11500Hz (6.5 octaves) : measured surface difference between 1/20th octave curve and 1/2 octave curve, so it is not related to target and general slope
  • WBD Wide Bandwidth Deviation of frequency response from target curve : it is a value based on area difference (so related to variance) between the measured response and the target response between 125 and 11500Hz
  • LFD Low Frequencies Deviation is based on area difference between the measured response and the target response between 25 and 125Hz (2 octaves) but calculated on a linear frequency scale
  • please notice that the displayed mean value is the lowest of L and R values

Il ne faut pas oublier que cet indice global de performance est basé uniquement sur les réponses mesurées en amplitude ce qui ne représente pas l'ensemble des critères d'audibilité : niveaux max, directivité, distortions, phase et réponse temporelle, etc...
