If you want to read the PDF, try requesting it from the authors.


The in-situ responses of a total of 372 loudspeakers in 164 professional monitoring rooms around the world have been measured after acoustical calibration. All measured rooms have been equipped with factory calibrated three way monitors and acoustically calibrated with standardized apparatus. The results provide a thorough under- standing of typical monitoring conditions for stereo and multi-channel rooms, distribution in room parameters and quality of reproduced audio. Results are compared to current standards and recommendations.

... It may be followed by a traditional correction of the envelope of magnitude response. The need for such active correction of room acoustics is particularly prominent around 100 Hz even in spaces designed for listening purposes, such as audio monitoring rooms [45]. ...
