Using Mode Matching Methods and Edge Diffraction in Horn Loudspeaker Simulation
A method for simulating an expanding duct, like a horn, by mode matching techniques is described. For a horn in an infinite baffle, the modal radiation impedance and radiated pressure can be found from known relations. For a horn equipped with a small baffle or flange, however, diffraction from the edges has to be taken into account. This paper investigates how an edge diffraction term can be included, and its effect on the throat and radiation impedances and radiated pressure. Measurement results are presented, and are shown to be in good agreement with the simulations, both for a horn in a large baffle, and for a horn with a small flange.
