Since Fig.6 indicates the existence of fixed and angle-dependent components in the measured impulse responses, and since such angle-independent component is strongly suppressed by baffling in the cabinet enclosure, it is desirable to eliminate this fixed component from the measurements. For this purpose, an iterative algorithm was developed which models the two components separately.

Let
denote the number of impulse-response samples in each
measured impulse response,and let
denote the number of angles
(`-180:15:180`) at which impulse-response measurements were
taken. We denote the
impulse-response matrix by
.
Each column of
is an impulse response at some horn angle.
(Figure 6 can be interpreted as a plot of the *transpose* of
.)

We model as

where is the arrival-time delay, in samples, for the horn output in the th row (the delays clearly visible in Fig.6 as a function of angle). These arrival times are estimated as the location of the peak in the cross-correlation between the th impulse response and the same impulse response after converting it to minimum phase [11]. The diagonal matrix diag denotes a

Each column of the matrix contains a copy of the estimated horn-base leakage impulse-response:

The estimated angle-dependent impulse-responses in

linear combinations of
*fixed* impulse responses, viewed
(loosely) as *principal components*:
