One approach to blind source separation of instantaneously mixed, non-stationary sources involves using the generalized eigenvalue decomposition of two estimated covariance matrices. The assumption is that the source statistics change with time whilst the mixing matrix does not. A recent generalisation of this approach to convolutive mixtures was achieved by extending the generalized eigenvalue decomposition to polynomial matrices. In this paper, we present a further investigation into this broadband BSS technique. We derive some expressions for the conditions under which source separation is possible. The validity of our analysis is illustrated through some computer simulations.
