RTA 168C Frequency Response

Typical Frequency Response


Magnitude Frequency Response Measurement using Octave Analysis with Periodic Pink Noise Excitation (no averaging is required unlike the case of pink noise)
Measurement of Reverberation and Its Related Acoustic Parameters using the Interrupted Noise Method (Note: Multi-Instrument Pro or above is required)
Measurement of Reverberation and Speech Intelligibility Parameters using the Integrated Impulse Response Method (Note: Multi-Instrument Pro or above is required)
(cont.) Measurement of Reverberation and Speech Intelligibility Parameters using the Integrated Impulse Response Method (Note: Multi-Instrument Pro or above is required)
Discontinuity Measurement for Detection of Glitch, Digital Dropout, Speaker Rub and Buzz (Note: Multi-Instrument Pro or above is required)
Sound Quality Measurement Example - Loudness, Loudness Level, Sharpness of a white noise in a Free Field (Note: Multi-Instrument Pro or above is required)
