Masking Effects of Audio Systems with Non-flat Frequency Response 2005-01-0567

An automotive audio system typically demonstrates an irregular frequency response. For broad-spectrum signals like rim shots or cymbals, simultaneous masking caused by response peaks masks weaker portions of these signals. This could result in a perceived loss of energy and liveliness. This paper discusses this hypothesis, and experiments focused on relating frequency response irregularities to the perception of listening system liveliness.
