Subject: BAS Birthday Party, While Elephant Sale, & Multi Tone Testing
Featured Guests: Everyone

As is typical of our clinics, it will consist of two new tests that most likely will be adopted industry wide. They are (1) a numeric IMD representation
of multi-tone loudspeaker distortion, and (2) obtaining your loudspeaker's psycho acoustic flat frequency response in a real room, i.e., a reflective
