### Compensating Loudspeaker frequency response in an audio signal

Yes, you can do this with a Wiener Filter which uses the Wiener-Hopf equation to determine the least squared solution to the filter that would compensate for your channel, using the known transmit and ...

### Why don't unit circle poles lead to infinite amplitude response for Butterworth lowpass?

You've made an understandable mistake. You are probably looking at this picture: That is not the unit circle, and it isn't even in the $z$ domain. What you are looking at is the locations of the ...

### This is how my professor is finding the frequency response of an LTI system when given the impulse response. Is this wrong?

Your professor is right, and you're almost right too. The filter is clearly an FIR filter, but because its frequency response can be expressed as a geometric series, a recursive implementation is ...

### Can two different impulse responses give the same frequency response?

No. The impulse response and frequency response of an LTI system are related by the Fourier transform, which is one-to-one.

### For 2D signals can it be said that the frequency response is the same as the Fourier transform?

Yes for 2D signals you can take a 2D fft, and if the 2D signal is represented in the time domain, then its fft is represented in the frequency domain. 2D FFT's have many other interesting ...

### Design a linear-phase FIR filter approximating the magnitude of a given IIR filter

What you do in step 1 is simply truncate the infinite impulse response to approximate it by an FIR filter. If you use sufficiently many filter taps, the approximation becomes arbitrarily accurate. ...

### why exponential term neglected in equation?

The magnitude of that complex exponential is 1. Recall from complex algebra: any complex number can be expressed as $z = r e^{j \phi}$ where $|z|=r$ is its magnitude and $\arg z = \phi$ is the ...

### In time series analysis, is taking a multi-period difference equivalent to a band-pass filter?

What you are describing is two cases of a more general form of a Comb Filter (I encourage you to go through the link, but I'll adapt to your particular case here): $$y(n) = x(n) + \alpha x(n-K)$$ ...

### For an LTI system, why does the Fourier transform of the impulse response give the frequency response?

The intuitive answer is that an impulse in time at t=0 contains all frequencies of equal magnitude, so applying an impulse to an LTI system is the same as applying all frequencies at once, thus the ...

### Can two different impulse responses give the same frequency response?

To add on to what has been said, what you're asking is, if you have $h_1$ and $h_2$ as impulse responses of a LTI systems (continuous-time or discrete time) and $H_1$, $H_2$ their respective frequency ...

### Design of a digital A-weighting filter with arbitrary sample rate

It's a common misconception that the approximation of an analog filter by a digital filter must be bad close to Nyquist. This idea might come from the ubiquity of the bilinear transform, for which ...

### What is the time unit of the converted Channel Impulse Response?

Because you don't have background in wireless communications, I will try to answer as simply as possible. What is the time unit of the converted CIR? Just time unit. It can be second, ms, us, etc. ...

### Why the frequency response plots (of causal filters) only show positive frequency?

This has absolutely nothing to do with causality. The frequency response of a real-valued filter (i.e., one with a real-valued impulse response) is (conjugate) symmetric, i.e., the negative ...

### Correcting phase response of a signal

You can equalize magnitude and phase simultaneously by defining a desired complex frequency response $$D(\omega)=M(\omega)e^{j\phi(\omega)}\tag{1}$$ with magnitude $M(\omega)$ and phase $\phi(\omega)$ ...

### Can two different impulse responses give the same frequency response?

Let me play with fire, since I agree with @Jason R answer. Some consider, loosely, that the frequency response is magnitude only (which is not correct, as a frequency response should have a phase as ...

### Why must I take abs of filter frequency response?

Frequency response has two parts: amplitude response and the phase response. Both of these are represented as a complex signal when you get the response from freqz. ...

### Understanding the H1 and H2 estimators

Let's define the true transfer function $H_0=P_{xy}/P_{xx}=P_{yy}/P_{yx}$. $H_1$: The transfer function is computed as the ratio of the cross spectrum between the input and output signals, to the ...

### Calculation of inverse impulse response in the frequency domain

Your result is correct, even if it seems a bit counterintuitive. Note that you don't compute the Fourier transform but the discrete Fourier transform (DFT). The system you want to invert has the ...

If you are using a floating point implementation you can simply use a unit impulse as an test signal. The output will be the impulse response and you can take the Fourier Transform to get the ...

### Bandwidth of a complex pole

My understanding of bandwidth is that it is the frequency range outside which the signal power drops by 3dB. That is the usual definition, yes. A better phrasing may be "drops by 3dB from the ...

### Phase response of non-symmetric FIR filters

The phase is indeed not linear as we would get when the impulse response is symmetrical or anti-symmetrical about its center coefficient. In the plot of magnitude and phase (which we can get using the ...

### How to obtain impulse response from a plot of magnitude of frequency response?

You state in your question that you have a "magnitude response". In that case, you cannot reconstruct the time-domain signal corresponding to the impulse response, because phase information is missing....
