4 - Acoustic Measurements

SL:  Since my designs do not require acoustic measurements on part of the DIY builder, I will not go into this subject. Meaningful acoustic measurements are difficult to perform even with gating techniques. I do not measure the in-room response. Since we hear both in frequency and time domains it is exceedingly difficult to obtain meaningful information from such measurements. I only use free-field acoustic measurements.

Fitz:  I understand, though it is hard to resist measuring the speaker's response at the listening position.

SL:  I marvel how the brain deals with complex acoustic situations. 
Just be sure to have studied Acoustics and Hearing - 2.1.

What you hear is not the air pressure variation in itself 
but what has drawn your attention
in the streams of superimposed air pressure variations 
at your eardrums

An acoustic event has dimensions of Time, Tone, Loudness and Space
Have they been recorded and rendered sensibly?
