This paper reports the design and implementation of a method to perceptually assess the acoustical prop- erties of a car cabin and the subsequent sound reproduction properties of automotive audio systems. Here, we combine Spatial Decomposition Method and Rapid Sensory Analysis techniques. The former allows in- stant comparisons between auralized measured Vehicle Impulse Responses (VIR) over loudspeakers, avoiding headphone-related shortcomings, while rapid sensory analysis overcomes time-consuming product profiling and language-specific problems, commonly found in the evaluation of audio material. The proposed method is described in terms of capturing, analyzing and reproducing the sound field. A brief overview of the experimental procedure is presented as well as preliminary results of a pilot experiment.
