Silver medal recipient of AES
Professor of University of Technology in Dresden
曾在加拿大滑铁卢大学的音频研究组从事博士后研究，并在美国加利福尼亚州北岭的Harman /JBL公司工作。此后，于1997年回到德累斯顿，成立了柯力普公司（Klippel GmbH），致力于研发扬声器和其他换能器的新型控制与测量系统。
Wolfgang Klippel studied electrical engineering at the University of Technology in Dresden, in the former East Germany, where his initial studies focused on speech recognition. Afterwards, he joined a loudspeaker company in the eastern part of Germany where he was engaged in transducer modelling, acoustic measurement and psychoacoustics. He later returned to his studies and received a Ph.D in Technical Acoustics in 1987.
After spending a post-doctoral year at the Audio Research Group in Waterloo, Canada and working at Harman/JBL in Northridge, CA, he returned to Dresden in 1997 and founded Klippel GmbH, a company that develops novel control and measurement systems dedicated to loudspeakers and other transducers.
Dr. Klippel has also been engaged as Professor of Electro-acoustics at the University of Technology in Dresden since 2007. His papers and tutorials on loudspeaker modeling and measurement – particulary those on large signal behaviour and physical distortion mechanisms –are considered reference works in the field.
