An article by R. D. Fay presents a method for calculating the complete performance at any frequency of an electro-magnetic speaker from a plot of its electrical impedance measured when the speaker is loaded by a closed air column of variable length. The present article applies this method to a dynamic microphone, yielding pressure sensitivity at lower audiofrequencies and providing a means of calculating microphone mechanical impedance and other characteristics. Improvement in accuracy which may be achieved by proper choice of area for closed air column is discussed.
