Suppose there is a process $x(t)$ with power spectrum $$S_x(\omega)=\lim_{T\to\infty}\frac{1}{T}\left|\int_{-T/2}^{T/2}\mathrm{d}t\,e^{j\omega t}x(t)\right|^2,$$ ignoring the expectation value for simplicity. $x(t)$ is then modified by $$y(t)=\int_{-\infty}^{\infty}\frac{\mathrm{d\omega}}{2\pi}\,e^{-j\omega t}f(\omega)\int_{-\infty}^{\infty}\mathrm{d}t\,e^{j\omega t}x(t)$$ where $f(\omega)$ is an arbitrary function. I am wondering how to find the power spectrum $S_{y}(\omega)$ of $y(t)$. Intuitively it should be $S_{y}(\omega)=\left|f(\omega)\right|^2S_x(\omega)$ but I just can't seem to prove it using the definition of power spectrum I have given; I'm not sure how to include the $T$ from the time average.
