Abstract

A dynamic equalization system 12 for use in audio reproduction systems. The apparatus includes a chirp tone generator 38 which produces a tone having multiple frequencies. The chirp tone is broadcast into the listening space 10 from a transducer 14. The broadcast chirp tone is monitored by a second transducer 22 at the listening position to produce a received chirp tone. The received tone and the original tone are compared in a coefficient computer 44 connected to a programmable equalizer 42. The equalizer 42 uses the signal from the coefficient computer to compensate for irregularities 47 in listening space 10 and transducer 14 to produce a substantially undistorted listening experience from source 28 in listening space 10. The first step of the method of the invention is generation of a chirp tone. The chirp tone includes multiple frequencies. The chirp tone is broadcast into the listening space from a transducer placed at the selected transducer position. The broadcast chirp tone is next monitored by a transducer at the listening position to produce a received chirp tone. The received tone is then compared to the generated chirp tone and differences noted. The differences are used to program an equalizer for correction of sound. The process is done for each position where a transducer is located. Finally, sound from a program source is routed through the equalizer to the transducers for a corrected sound.
