Characterisation and modelling of non-linear loudspeakers

Leela K. Gudupudi, Christophe Beaugeant, Nicholas Evans
2014 2014 14th International Workshop on Acoustic Signal Enhancement (IWAENC)  
Results show the potential of the approach but also the challenge in estimating reliable non-linear models which accurately predict the response to complex real-speech inputs.  ...  Approaches to non-linear acoustic echo cancellation for mobile devices all require a reliable, non-linear model of the loudspeaker.  ...  One explanation for this behaviour lies in the wider variation in amplitude for speech signals compared to sine-sweep signals; lower amplitude speech signals may provoke significantly less non-linear distortion  ...

On perceptual distortion measures and parametric modeling

Mads G. Christensen
2008 Journal of the Acoustical Society of America  
We discuss the inherent tradeoffs in choosing a perceptual distortion measure and a parametric model, and the pros and cons of various ways of implementing such perceptual distortion measures are discussed  ...  An important question that we seek to answer is whether perception should be taken into account in the estimation of model parameters or this should be done in a separate step.  ...  Therefore, if a low-order model is desired for low-complexity processing or transmission using a low bit-rate, such an approach is very convenient.  ...
