The short AGM will be followed by a presentation by Graeme Huon on the topic:

Speaker Design using Parametric Acoustic Modelling

With the number of loudspeaker manufacturers in the marketplace today you would be forgiven for thinking it is an evolving black art.
For the August AES Melbourne meeting, Graeme will take you on a quick trip through the history of speaking loudly and the evolution of the modern loudspeaker, hopefully adding some science and dispelling some myths. In particular, work done with Parametric Acoustic Modelling (PAM) to expand upon and extend Neville Thiele and Dick Small’s work will be outlined and a picture of the future painted.
