 5th November 2006, 12:35 AM #1 diyAudio Member   Join Date: Mar 2006 Location: nsw Baffle step phase respose I am working on a baffle that at its extremes comes in from a flat half space section, to a quarter space section (flat baffle in a corner), as opposed to the normal half space into free space. I am using baffle simulation software, which appears not to be designed for this. I am inverting the response it gives so there is an upward step of 6dB. I am assuming this is reasonable, if I'm wrong, please say so. My real question is should I also mirror the phase response of the baffle around the 0 degree line?

Wright -- it was in the Journal of the Audio Engineering Society, May 1997, p347. The paper corrects some of the errors previously published in the JAES.

Baffle step is going from free space to half space. Two walls are 1/4 space, adding the third wall = 1/8 space. I can't see that you'd get any baffle step. /sreten.

 7th November 2006, 09:00 PM #6 diyAudio Member   Join Date: Mar 2006 Location: nsw Imagine a corner, and insert a tall, 2' wide panel into it so it chamfers the corner. Ignore the floor and ceiling for the moment. I figured that small waves contained on the baffle would be in half space, and once extended between the two intersecting walls, they would be in quarter space. Sorry, in retrospect I don't like my wording on the first post either I am using The Edge.

If sound from a normal box is considered to be in 2PI space whilst wavelengths are small enough to fit on the baffle.....unless I've missed something? Svante, kudos on The Edge. I used to use a spreadsheet, but I find your program is easier to set up, easier to manipulate, covers a wider frequency range and has phase information, unlike the spreadsheet.

Is that the phase of the compensator or the phase of the edge diffraction?

Close proximity to the corner I'm sure will give some strange boundry effects with boosts (up to 150Hz?) and suckouts (331Hz?).... thinking aloud __________________ No longer DIY active
