Part VII: Acoustical circuits

3.4. Acoustical elements

Acoustical circuits are frequently more difficult to draw than mechanical ones because the elements are less easy to identify. As was the case for mechanical circuits, the more obvious forms of the elements will be useful as an intermediate step toward drawing the analogous circuit diagram. When the student is more familiar with acoustical circuits, he or she will be able to pass directly from the acoustic device to the final form of the equivalent circuit.
In acoustic devices, the quantity we are able to measure most easily without modification of the device is sound pressure. Such a measurement is made by inserting a small hollow probe tube into the sound field at the desired point. ...
