Annotation Electroacoustics, as a physical phenomenon, is a part of modern civilization and cultural factor. Acoustic field. Subjective attributes of sound by reception of speech and music. Distortions of sound. Room acoustics. Electromechanical conversion. Dynamic analogy, physical aspects, discrepancies and paradoxes in the formulation of dynamical processes. .
Microphones. Emission of sound. Loudspeakers and the acoustic design. .
Laboratory and practical works: measurements and evaluation of acoustic characteristics of microphones, loudspeakers, acoustic systems and rooms. .
Goals and objectives
of the course in terms
of competences and skills
The goal of the course is to acquire professional and academic knowledge in field of electroacoustics. The objectives: to promote understanding of major processes in radio and TV broadcasting; to enable students to design microphones and loudspeakers based on the methods of dynamic analogy, as well as to solve mechanical, acoustical and other problems.
