DESCRIPTION JPS61212996 [0001] "Industrial field of application" The invention of the present invention is that the sound pressure of one or two or more points set in an arbitrary three-dimensional space identical to this with respect to the sound wave emitted from the speaker element The present invention relates to a multipoint radiation type sound pressure control apparatus that produces a desired sound pressure distribution by controlling an input signal that supplies a waveform to the speaker element. [Conventional technology-1 From recent research on "sound image localization", control the sound pressure at multiple points using multiple speaker elements based on the evaluation error of "square error minimum" Concept of the method of constructing the device [Yanagi et al .: J. Eight coust, soc, Jpn (E), 4, 2, 107-109 (1983)). Here, the concept of this method will be described by developing it on a 1-time axis ?L ?. The following description is based on the simple model shown in FIG. 1I. Although FIG. 11 shows the conventional method of controlling the sound pressure at one point for the sake of simplicity, the method for two or more points is based on the same principle. 11. In FIG. 11, the microphone element 11. placed in the sound field where the room reflection sound exists. The sound pressure of the virtual speaker element S.degree. Received at step S.sub.0 is determined using the speaker element 1.sub.1 without using the virtual speaker element S ". Can reproduce the situation as if the acoustic signal is being emitted from the virtual speaker element S 'despite the fact that the speaker element 11 emits the acoustic signal. In this specification, speaker control for creating such a situation is called "sound pressure control". In order to create the above situation, the signal transfer characteristic between the virtual speaker element S and the microphone element 111, that is, the impulse response, and the speaker element 1. The coefficients of the FIR filter (transversal filter) 21 ? are appropriately determined so that the impulse response between the microphone element 113 and the microphone element 113 becomes equal, and the signal is transmitted to the speaker phase element 1 through the FIR filter 211. It may be supplied to the Now, let the impulse 08-05-2019 1 response between the speaker element S 'and the microphone element 11 ░ be r (k) (k = 1.2.-=-, N), and the speaker element 11 and the microphone element 11. Filter coefficient h (k) (k -1, 2----, T) satisfying the following equation, where g (k) (k = 1, 2,-, m) between The desired sound field control is realized by applying,, 'to the FIR filter 211. r (k) = g (k) h (k)-------------------- Represents an operation. In the formula (1), r (k) is (r, rz-"-rn)" (T represents transposition), g (k) is Cg + gz-gm) ", h (k) is (h + hz-ht) If it is represented by T and a vector represented by each discrete value, (1) expression% expression% is rewritten. However, when the filter coefficient hI + 2 +-'-+ hl is obtained from the (I) equation, the number n of equations is larger than the number of unknowns, so the equation (1) is usually an impossible equation Understanding that this expression is satisfied, h2. It is impossible to obtain ?, h,. In the prior art, therefore, a filter coefficient that minimizes the squared error represented by 11e (k) 12-? giant (k)-g (k) h (k)-+21, using "minimum squared error" as the evaluation scale Sound pressure control is performed to obtain h (k) and to approximately realize a desired impulse response r (k) using this. This h (k) is obtained by the following equation. However, this method is intended to minimize the (al 2 error, and theoretically includes an error due to the inability to satisfy the equation (1). The error of (blta +) is greatly influenced by the positional relationship between each speaker element, each controlled point, and the surrounding environment. There was a drawback of that. An object of the present invention is to set an arbitrary signal transfer characteristic, ie, an impulse response, determined for each controlled point at one or more controlled points set in any threedimensional space. An object of the present invention is to provide a sound pressure control device capable of accurately creating a desired sound pressure distribution by realizing the method without approximation errors as in the conventional method. [Means for Solving the Problems] According to the present invention, the speaker elements are arranged at a plurality of points in the space, the same human power signal is supplied to these speaker elements through the respective different filters, and the same space as these speaker elements The desired signal transfer characteristics defined for each of the points (hereinafter referred to as controlled points) at least one less than the number of speaker elements, and the signal transfer between each of the speaker elements and the controlled points The coefficients of the respective filters are calculated using the characteristics, and the coefficients are set as the corresponding filters, whereby the manual signal is transmitted to the desired points at the controlled points at the desired signal transmission. It is controlled to satisfy the characteristics. Conventionally, the number of loudspeaker elements and the number of controlled points are the same, or the latter is large. However, in the present invention, the number of controlled points is always smaller than the number of loudspeaker elements. Principle of the Invention First, the present invention will be described in detail with reference to FIG. In FIG. 1, eight (S ? 2) speaker elements 11 + 12 +-----+ + I S are disposed in space. Also, N 08-05-2019 2 controlled points in the space 11. ,-, 11N are provided. In FIG. 1, when the microphone elements are disposed at the controlled points 11 ░,-, 11N, respectively, the controlled points LL,----11u may be referred to as microphone elements. ???????????? The same input signal is applied from the input terminal 12 to the speaker elements 11.1 ? and -1s through the FIR filters 211, 212 ░-and 213, respectively. By controlling the filter coefficients of these FIR filters 21+, 21 ? and -21 ░, the input signals applied to the speaker elements 11, 1 ? and -'- 1s can be controlled separately. First assume the following conditions. This is generally fulfilled in a normal acoustic environment. (Condition-1) Eight speaker elements 11 + 1z + -31s and N controlled points 11. , And 11 N can all be represented by discrete time series having the same finite length m (hereinafter, such discrete time series will be referred to as "hector"). (Condition2) Transfer functions obtained by Z-transforming each of the impulse responses described in (Condition-1) do not have the same zero point. Now, N desired impulse responses set for each of the controlled points,-, and IN are represented by r, (k) U = 1.2. ? N) and eight speaker elements 1. , And S-N impulse responses between I S and N microphone elements 11+ and '-' II N are gij (k) (i = 1.2.-3; j = 1, 2. -, N), and filters 21. provided in front of each of the eight speaker elements. ,21. Each filter coefficient of h + (k) (i = 1.2. If it is set as ---, S, then filter coefficients hi (k) which satisfy rJ (k)-. SIGMA.gtJ (k) .hi (k) ---- m =-141 are accurately determined. If so, the disadvantages of the prior art can be overcome. ?????????????????? ?????????? ??????????????????????????????????? ??????????????????????????? ????????????

Using the Todai Press, 65-68 (1983)), 11 (-[1; T ((G-(1; D)-1 и Il !! The solution of --- --- --- (6) 'can be obtained. That is, the most important feature of the present invention is the basic equation (4) or (4) for sound pressure control by using control speaker elements and filters whose number is greater 08-05-2019 3 than the number N of sound pressure controlled points. A filter coefficient satisfying the above is obtained, and as a result, the impulse response determined for each of the controlled points can be accurately reproduced by the eight speakers, not by approximation. Therefore, the present invention, in principle, overcomes the drawbacks of the conventional method, which can reproduce only an approximate impulse response at each controlled point. Embodiment 1 FIG. 2 shows an embodiment of the present invention, which is an example in which the whole system is constituted by a digital signal processing system. In FIG. 2, an input signal U (t) to the multipoint radiation type sound pressure controller (the device of the present invention) is supplied from the input terminal 12 to the A / D converter 30, and the A / D converter 30 The signal U (k) obtained by discretizing the input signal U (t) is output, and these are branched into eight identical signals U + (k) (+ = 1, 2,-, S) and eight Fll?

The signal is supplied to a waveform recorder 60 which stores-, N). The output of the waveform recorder 60 and each controlled point 11. ,-. The outputs of the waveform recorder 61 storing desired N impulse response vectors (hereinafter referred to as target impulse response hectles) determined for each 11N are supplied to the waveform manipulator 70, respectively. The output of the waveform operator 70 is supplied to the calculation setter 80. The output of the operation setter 80 is supplied to the filter coefficient determiner 100, which outputs eight FIR filters 21+, 21z,-'. 21 is supplied to the corresponding setting input side. The operation of this embodiment will now be described. In this example, eight FIR filters 21.1, 21z,-. 21, the first input signal U, (k) (+ = 1, 2, '-и и. It is assumed that S) is set to output immediately without processing. In the waveform recorder 60, an impulse response vector (hereinafter referred to as a room impulse response vector) between the speaker elements II, ?, 1 and 1s and the controlled point 11 ? ? ? + 11N is opened and closed as necessary. It is assumed that N target impulse response vectors, which are stored by closing the unit 200 and stored in the waveform recorder 61 for each of the controlled points IL,-, and llo, are stored in advance. The waveform manipulator 70 performs the following processing [1] to [4] using the room impulse response vector and the target impulse response vector stored in the waveform recorder records 60 and 61, respectively.

Then, the group delay D'4 is obtained. Not only when the target impulse response vector is given by calculation in advance, for example, when it is desired to cancel an acoustic signal from a certain sound source, the impulse response between each sound source and each controlled point is the target impulse response vector.

N) Remove one element from the head of each of the impulse response vectors for the target impulse response vector f determined at the controlled point and the room impulse response vector g. That is, the same delay amount common to each impulse response vector is removed. However, if D d ? D is not satisfied, accurate target impulse response can not be reproduced in the control described later. It is because of the physical reason that it can not "control a signal which is advanced with a signal delayed in time". The processes of [1] to [4] described above are devices for determining the rank of the equation (4) ? ? described above by the number of rows of the matrix G. Next, the waveform manipulator 70 outputs the target impulse response vector and the indoor impulse response vector which have been subjected to the above processes [1] to [4] to the operation setting unit 80. Here, the room impulse response can be represented by a vector of length m, as for the two conditions (condition-1) mentioned above. (Condition-2) Transfer functions obtained by Z-transforming the room impulse response are the same and do not have zeros. Shall meet The calculation setter 80 uses the input from the waveform manipulator 70 to perform the following process [61 to [9].

Then, the target impulse response vector is appropriately zeroed to create a vector of such a length as to satisfy the equation (00), and this is made into the target impulse response hektor again. [71N target impulse response vectors are used to create a target impulse response vector R having a length of N и (m + L?1) as shown on the left side of equation (4). [8] Using S-N room impulse response vectors, find the matrix of (N. (m + L-1), 5-L) as shown on the right side of equation (4). [9] For L defined in [6], (when L = N-(m1) / (S-N)) (N и (m ?

After performing the processes of [61 to [9] above, the calculation setter 80 outputs I?R, CG, GIFT (or ?) to the filter coefficient determiner 100. As shown in FIG. 3, the filter coefficient determiner 1oo comprises three matrix multipliers 101, 102, 103, one inverse matrix calculator 110, and a coefficient distributor 120. The operation of the filter coefficient determiner 100 will be described below with reference to FIG. 08-05-2019 5 [10] Matrix multiplier 101 (7) CT (or ?) is input to input terminals 101-11m [1 ;, 102-2], their product is calculated, and c-, cT (or G) are output Ru.

[13] R is input to the input terminal 103-1 of the matrix multiplier 103, and as a result, a filter coefficient ? such as clothing is obtained. ??????? ----- S, [14] The coefficient distributor 120 has eight filters 21. .

The acoustic signals emitted from 1 ?, ?, 1s completely reproduce the characteristics of the target impulse response defined for these points at N controlled points 111 ░ ? ? ? 11 It will be done. By the way, for the calculation of the filter coefficient, various successive approximation methods can be used other than the above-mentioned processes of [1] to [14]. When using the successive approximation method, it is also necessary to pay attention to the convergence of the algorithm, but the inverse matrix as described above or the norm minimum generalized inverse matrix [z? Compared to the method of directly obtaining ((1;-(CT)-'thing), it is advantageous in terms of computational complexity and memory capacity. In the case of the successive approximation method, the filter coefficient determiner 100 in FIG. 2 may be replaced with a sequential filter coefficient determiner 130 as shown in FIG. The successive filter coefficient determiner 130 is composed of a sequential operation circuit 131 having a sequential calculation and a coefficient distributor 120. In the sequential operation circuit 131, for example, the following steepest descent algorithm is used [Fazeev et al .: Calculation method of linear algebra, industrial book.

In this method, eight arithmetic circuits 141. , 1413 calculate in parallel, the amount of calculation required for the determination of the filter coefficient is Q31. Compared to the case of calculating ?Q3)? equation, it is apparently 1 / S. Therefore, the time required to calculate the filter coefficient can be significantly reduced. [Embodiment 2] The above-described embodiment 1 has acoustic signals radiated from eight (S ? 2) speaker elements, at N (N ? 5-1) controlled points. Arbitrary sound pressure distribution is realized by controlling so as to satisfy an arbitrary signal transfer characteristic (target in-plus response) defined for each controlled point. However, when performing control to "set the sound pressure of all N controlled points to zero", it can be understood from the fact that R in ?2) becomes a zero vector, the eight FT11 filters 21+,- , 21 and the tap coefficients are all zero, practically meaningless control is performed. However, in the control such that the sound pressure of all the N controlled points is kept at zero and the acoustic signal is present at a place other than the controlled point, especially in the teleconference system etc. It is extremely demanding as a means to prevent "howing" caused by acoustic coupling. Therefore, another configuration example of the present invention which enables the above control by slightly modifying the apparatus shown in Example 1 is shown in FIG. In FIG. 6, parts corresponding to those in FIG. 2 are assigned the same reference numerals and duplicate explanations are omitted. In FIG. 6, the input signal U (t) from the input terminal 12 is also supplied to the delay circuit 160 and its output is supplied to the speaker element 9. The delay circuit 160, N controlled points from the speaker element 9; , And 11N are respectively emitted from eight speaker elements 11.1.quadrature. , And IIN are provided to provide an appropriate amount of delay to arrive later than any of the acoustic signals emitted respectively. In other words, the speaker element 9 and the N controlled points 111,----, 11. Speaker element 1. . 1 ?. It means that the delay circuit 160 is unnecessary if it is set so as to be farther than the distances of-, i, and each of the controlled points 11 ░,-, 11N. The use of the delay circuit 160 is to avoid contradictory situations such as "a signal delayed in time and a signal advanced beyond this" is controlled. Also, a waveform recorder 62 is added, and is connected to the subtractor 170 together with the waveform recorder 61, and the output of the subtractor 170 is supplied to the waveform operator 70. Next, the operation of this embodiment will be described. In this embodiment, the waveform recorder 62 already contains the loudspeaker elements 9 and the respective controlled points 1.1. , ?, 'I N N impulse response vectors r s (j = 1. 2. ---9N) shall be memorized. The other parts are initialized as in the first embodiment. First, the impulse response vectors rj and rj stored in the waveform recorder 61.62 (j = 1.2. ?? N) is subjected to the operation of S, = ('j-rj----------------061) by the subtractor 170, and as a target impulse response vector, C4 is input to the waveform controller 70. 06) In the equation, if rj is all zero vectors, then the target impulse response vector is as follows, which corresponds to each controlled point 08-05-2019 7 from the speaker element 9], 11. -. The phases of N impulse response vectors rj up to 11N are reversed. That is, this process obtains an impulse response with the phase of the vector 74 inverted. Thereafter, the same processing as in [1] to [14] described in the embodiment 1 is performed, and eight FIR filters 21. ,-21. The coefficient of should be determined. ??????? ????????? After the setting of the filter coefficients for the speaker elements 11 and 12 is completed. If an input signal is given from the input terminal 12 to-, 1, N controlled points 11. , -11. The acoustic signal at the point satisfies the target impulse response given by the surface equation, and a situation is created as if the speaker element,-, 1, s are sounding in opposite phase to the speaker element 9. Therefore, the speaker element 9 and the speaker element 1. , ?, and 1s, the sound pressure at N controlled points IL, ? and IIN becomes all zero and the controlled points 11. . --- An acoustic signal will exist in places other than IIN. That is, by adding one or more speaker elements configured to always emit an acoustic signal of finite amplitude to the apparatus described in Example 1, N controlled points IL in the sound field,-, 11 N It is possible to control so as to make only the sound pressure of the sound pressure zero, and emit an acoustic signal of sufficient volume at other points. This indicates that the device of the present invention can also be used as one of the means for preventing howling. Embodiment 3 In Embodiment 2, one or more of the speaker elements 9 configured to emit acoustic signals of finite amplitude all the time, as a method of preventing the ringing of the present invention as a method It explained that it was effective. In the embodiment 3, another embodiment of the present invention will be described in which howling is suppressed by nulling the output signal of each of the microphone elements installed at N controlled points. FIG. 7 shows this embodiment. In FIG. 7, parts corresponding to FIG. 2 are given the same numbers. In FIG. 7, a target impulse response convolution circuit 180 is newly added. This circuit 180 represents a target impulse response vector provided for each of N controlled points, ie, each microphone element, using an I'IR filter or the like, and executes a convolution operation with a time series in real time. It is a thing. The input signal 11 (k) is supplied to the input side of the target impulse response convolutional circuit 1.80, and the output is supplied to the subtractor 190 together with the outputs of the respective microphones 111,-, 11N. There is. Next, the operation of this embodiment will be described. First, it is assumed that the filter coefficients for eight Fill filters 21+,-, 21s are set by performing the processes of [1] to [] 4J shown in the first embodiment. At this time, if the same input signal is applied to the target impulse response convolution circuit 180 and the speaker elements 11, 1 ?, ? ? ?, 1 s, the output signals of the microphone elements 111, ?, lIN reproduce the target impulse response. Therefore, the same signal is input to the subtractor 190 exactly. Therefore, the output signal of the subtractor 190 is zero, and the effect of suppressing howling can be obtained as in the inventive device described in the second embodiment. In addition, in this embodiment, N controlled points 111,-. There is no need to make the sound pressure at 11 zero at all, so for the person in the space (controlled point 111,-, IIN) the speaker element, the sound signal from-, 1, is sufficiently clear 11. Each controlled point to be given by 08-05-2019 8 gender, that is, to provide a human-friendly environment. , -11. Has an extremely superior feature that it can suppress howling while controlling the This is a great advantage that can not be achieved without the device according to the invention. At each side described above, controlled points 11. ,-. 11N and the speaker element 1. If each impulse response between,, and 1 is measured once, if there is no change in the acoustic environment around these arrangement relationship 1, the controlled point is not necessarily installed. An acoustic signal having a desired impulse response characteristic can be obtained. Next, the results of experiments conducted under the arrangement of the speaker element and the microphone element as shown in FIG. 8 will be described in order to confirm the effectiveness of the device of the present invention. The experiment includes (experimental data) speaker elements; three full-range speakers with a diameter of 10 cm, speaker spacing: 11 cm, one microphone element; one shortest element distance between the speaker element and the microphone element: 90 cm, room volume: 1.2. M, room average sound absorption coefficient; 0.8 + reverberation time; 75 m 5 ec, target impulse response Hector length; 400 points, indoor impulse response Hector length; 400 points, impulse response measurement method, 10'OO times synchronous addition 1 frequency band, 31 .5-3 L0 Hz, sampling period; 8 KHz, algorithm used; 05) Equation 200 times repeated FIR filter; 399 taps. Under such circumstances, the sound radiated from the speaker element 9 is erased using the speaker element 11.1. In the conventional apparatus of this type, it is general to use one speaker element used to extinguish the sound, that is, one speaker element for sound pressure control, but in this experiment, for the sound pressure control of one point Two control speaker elements 11.1 ? are used. This is to construct an apparatus satisfying the equation (5), which is a necessary matter as an embodiment of the present invention. Further, in FIG. 9, the frequency characteristics of the impulse response of the speaker element 11 and the microphone element 11, between the speaker element 1 ? and the microphone element 11, and between the speaker element 9 and the microphone element 11 are respectively curves A and B. Indicated by C. Here, an impulse response (curve C) between the speaker element 9 and the microphone element II is taken as a target impulse response. The frequency characteristic of FIG. 10 is an error waveform (curve E1 ?) representing the difference between the impulse response synthesized using the speaker element II and the speaker element 12 and the target impulse response, and the frequency characteristic (curve C) of the target impulse response. Drawn on the basis of). Also, in this figure, the conventional method shown in equation (2) is used as the speaker element 1. . The frequency characteristic of the error waveform obtained in the experiment in which each of the speaker elements 12 was used (an FIR filter of 1000 taps was used respectively) ) Is also drawn simultaneously as curve Ell Bg. The power of each error waveform is -11 dB (El), -19 dB (E2) when the conventional method is used, and one 256 B (Brz) when the apparatus of the present invention is used, with respect to the power of the target impulse 08-05-2019 9 response. Met. From the above results, according to the present invention device, it was confirmed by experiments that sound pressure control to the position of the microphone element is realized with sufficient performance (performance) over the conventional method. In particular, FIG. 10 also shows the howling margin as it is, and it has also become clear that this device can be applied for howling prevention and that a very large howling margin can be obtained. Moreover, it was also confirmed that the calculation amount required for filter coefficient calculation can save the apparent calculation amount by the method of making the filter coefficient determiner work in parallel by confirming the algorithm of the equation (05). [Effects of the Invention] As described above, according to the device of the present invention, the coefficient of the filter that performs appropriate control is accurately determined for the input signal of each of the plurality of speaker elements, and It is possible to set the sound pressure to be given to an arbitrary target value, and experiments have also confirmed that this device exhibits sufficient performance in practical use. Also, since the device according to the present invention can freely set the signal corresponding to the target impulse response, (1) it differs from the space other than the sound pressure distribution by other acoustic devices in the three-dimensional space where this device is installed. The sound pressure distribution in another space (for example, another room) can also be reproduced. (2) A completely new sound pressure distribution can be created. (3) A signal supplied to a speaker element which is in the same space as this device and gives a target impulse response. The sound pressure of one or more microphone elements set in an arbitrary three-dimensional space can be kept substantially zero by making the signal of the phase opposite to that of the input signal of this device. Therefore, it has the feature that it can provide one method of effectively preventing howling. In addition, in configuring the device of the present invention, using a plurality of speaker units (for example, woofer and tweeter) as speaker elements, combining a plurality of microphone units as microphone elements used as controlled points (for example, directivity Using a microphone is considered to be useful for improving the performance of the device of the present invention. The signal processing system of the present invention can also be configured by a DSP or a microprocessor that performs operations, delay procedures, and the like based on the configuration described above. In addition, although this specification has been described on the premise that an FIR filter is used as a filter, it is also possible to use an IIR filter or the like instead of the FIR filter.
