Any FREQUENCY in the audible RANGE, usually between 20 and 20,000 Hz, and often referring to the frequency of AUDIO signals. Also called the audio spectrum.
A form of STEREOPHONIC or multi-channel reproduction in which the sound source is spread around the listener by the use of four tracks or CHANNELs in recording or transmission and the use of four (or more) LOUDSPEAKERs. Conventional music or speech may be recorded in this way, in which case the speakers behind the listener add REVERBERATION to the original sound or are simply out of PHASE with respect to the front ones; or new works may be composed in which all tracks carry original material.
The difference in SOUND PRESSURE LEVEL between the saturation or overload level and the BACKGROUND NOISE level of an acoustic or electroacoustic system, measured in DECIBELs. This RANGE may be expressed as a SIGNAL-TO-NOISE RATIO for maximum output.
