Crosstalk canceller in stereo channel audio reproduction system has the purpose to deliver desired signals exactly at the listener's ear. Generally. it has a Poor performance in low frequency bands. Frequency-warped Otters are used to provide improved performance in crosstalk canceller for these problems. However. such filters are more complex to implement than conventional filters. This paper presents an efficient method for low-order IIR approximation of frequency warped crosstalk cancellation filters using Pole-zero dewarping. The method preserves the advantages of frequency warping, but has a computational complexity that is similar to the conventional method. This Paper also presents a series of experiments that validate the method of crosstalk canceller.
