Convention or series no. ISO 6926:1999
Title Acoustics - Requirements for the performance and calibration of reference sound sources used for the determination of sound power levels
Original title Acoustique - Prescriptions relatives aux performances et à l'étalonnage des sources sonores de référence pour la détermination des niveaux de puissance acoustique [in French]
Bibliographic information International Organization for Standardization (ISO), Case postale 56, 1211 Genève 20, Switzerland, 2nd ed., 1999. v, 11p. 17 ref. Price: CHF 67.00.
Abstract This international standard specifies the essential acoustical performance requirements of reference sound sources, used extensively in comparison methods for determining the noise emissions of physically-stationary sound sources, as well as their calibration procedures. The acoustical performance requirements relate to temporal steadiness and repeatability, spectral characteristics and directivity index. Replaces ISO Standard 6926:1990 (see CIS 90-2048).
