In this letter, the compensation ability of nonlinear distortions for loudspeaker systems is demonstrated using dynamic distortion measurement. Two linearization methods using a Volterra filter and a Mirror filter are compared. The conventional evaluation utilizes swept multi-sinusoidal waves. However, it is unsatisfactory because wideband signals such as those of music and voices are usually applied to loudspeaker systems. Hence, the authours use dynamic distortion measurement employing a white noise. Experimental results show that the two linearization methods can effectively reduce nonlinear distortions for wideband signals.
