Lady looking at Standards on computer | AVIXA



From defining processes and requirements, to promoting reliable performance of AV systems, AVIXA standards can increase your competitive advantage.

When a draft standard reaches a mature enough stage in the development process, the draft is posted for public review and comment before final publication. During the public review phase, feedback is welcomed from anyone who has a material interest in the draft.

Public Review and Comment 

Technical Review of AVIXA Draft Standard: A103.01:202X, Measurement and Classification of Spectral Balance of Sound Systems in Listener Areas—Open Now! 

AVIXA Standards is requesting constructive input on the latest version of the Spectral Balance draft standard. 

This Technical Review is a query for draft comments via an online form. Anyone with a material interest in this standard may download the draft (for FREE) and submit comments using the form linked on the cover page of the draft. 

Download the draft here.

Standard Scope:
This Standard defines the parameters for characterizing the spectral balance of sound systems by evaluating its transfer function to identify variations in frequency response averaged across the audience listening area. The Standard defines a process to measure, document, and classify a sound system’s ability to reproduce a relatively uniform spectral balance, also known as a uniform frequency response.

Commenting Guidelines:
Technical Review closes at 12 AM EDT on January 31, 2021. Technical Review is open to anyone with a material interest in this standard. AVIXA Membership or CTS credentials are NOT prerequisites for participation. 

*Unlike Public Review, Technical Review participation does not require a processing fee. The draft is free to download. 

Only comments submitted via the online form linked on the cover page of the draft will be considered. All comments must be specific and cite which portion (section or line number) of the document they refer to. Each comment must be actionable. If you have a correction or a critique, please provide a solution or alternative for the Spectral Balance task group to consider. All comments must be submitted in English. (However, since the finalized standard will be translated into Spanish, Portuguese, and German, AVIXA Standards especially appreciates any comments from non-native English speakers that point out idiomatic English or US-centricity.) 

AVIXA Standards and the Spectral Balance task group greatly value your time in reading, understanding, and critiquing this draft.

Per ANSI Essential Requirements

Prompt consideration shall be given to the written views and objections of all participants, including those commenting on the PINS announcement or public comment listing in Standards Action.

If resolution is not achieved, each such objector shall be informed in writing that an appeals process exists within procedures used by the standards developer. In conformance with these requirements, you have the right to express an objection to the comment resolution proposed by the task group for a period of two weeks from the date of notification.

These procedures are outlined in detail in the procedures manuals found in the Public Groups documents folder.
