Abstract

An automatic sound field correcting device executes a signal process to the plurality of audio signals on respective correspondent signal transmission paths, and outputs them to a plurality of correspondent speakers to correct sound characteristics on the respective signal transmission paths. Namely, a measurement signal is supplied to each signal transmission path, and a measurement sound corresponding to it is outputted from the speaker to a sound space. The outputted measurement sound is detected as a detecting signal. The frequency characteristic of the audio signal on each signal transmission path is corrected by an equalizer, and a gain value of the equalizer is determined by a correction amount determining unit. A frequency characteristics correction is performed predetermined times. At a first correction, the correction amount determining unit determines the correction amount by performing a frequency analysis, based on the detecting signal, i.e. base on the detecting signal corresponding to the measurement sound actually outputted to the sound space. On the contrary, at and after a second correction, the correction amount determining unit determines the correction amount based on the detecting signal or an output signal of the equalizer. Namely, at and after the second correction, the output signal of the equalizer is supplied to the correction amount determining unit in a signal processing circuit as the need arises, and the frequency characteristics correction is performed without actually outputting the measurement sound to the sound space.
