Cambridge, UK (September 26, 2019)—Spectral Measurement—formerly the Test & Measurement division of Prism Sound—has introduced its new line of Loudspeaker Test Chambers, licensed from UK-based Hill Acoustics.
The LTC range includes a selection of Tetrahedral Test Chambers as well as other geometries that provide test and measurement solutions for loudspeaker cabinets.
Graham Boswell, managing director of Spectral Measurement, noted that loudspeaker measurement has traditionally been difficult due to the requirement for a very large space to avoid room-related artifacts and the need for the device to be precisely located under test and measurement microphones.
“Hill Acoustic’s LTC range neatly and inexpensively solves these problems by providing a precise jig for the speaker and microphone and by calibrating the enclosure so that the equivalent free-field response can easily be calculated,” he explained. “As well as being accurate and consistent, this compact, low-cost solution also fits perfectly with our company ethos of delivering useful, workable solutions to the audio test and measurement market.
Geoff Hill, CTO of Hill Acoustics, noted, “We are looking forward to bringing the Tetrahedral Test Chambers to a World-wide market. This agreement with Spectral Measurement helps to achieve that by combining our individual strengths and capabilities in audio measurement and marketing”.
The range is also compatible with Spectral Measurement’s existing portfolio of audio test and measurement products, which include dScope Series III and dScope-M1. The LTC range will be on display at the 2019 AES Convention in New York.
