3-day Lecture by W. Klippel - TAIWAN

Sound Quality of Audio Systems

General Information

Dates: October 30th, 2017 until November 1st, 2017 (9am - 5pm)
Location: Feng-Chia University, Taiwan
Presenter: Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Klippel
Registration: Please contact Mr. Henry Liou T: +886 2 27218352 E: henry.liou(at)


The lecture addresses the evaluation of sound reproduction systems using physical and perceptive measurement techniques. The generation of signal distortion is modelled by linear, nonlinear and time-variant systems with lumped and distributed parameters. New measurement techniques based on those models are presented using test signals and music. The relationship between symptoms and physical causes of the distortion is made more transparent, and the impact on the perceived sound quality by combining listening tests, auralization techniques with physical methods is discussed. This knowledge is important for designing and manufacturing small, light and cost-effective transducers that reproduce the sound at high efficiency and sufficient sound quality and for using new control techniques (smart amplifiers).

Lecture Invitation English

Lecture Invitation Chinese

Attend also the Master Class on "Micro-speakers and Headphone Transducers" - November 3rd, 2017 in Shenzhen, China

The three-day lecture at the Feng-Chia University covers the basic terms, fundamental and theoretical concepts and practical diagnostic methods that are required for the design and evaluation of modern audio systems. Most of the new techniques are illustrated on woofers and other common cone loudspeakers to simplify the interpretation of the measurement results. The particularities of portable and personal audio systems will be addressed in a separate Master-class on “Micro-speakers and Headphone Transducers” that will be presented on 3rd of November 2017 in Shenzhen (main land China) just before the 6th International Symposium on Electroacoustic Technologies (ISEAT).

It is strongly recommended to use the three-day lecture as a warm up for this Master-class.
