In this paper we present several refinements to a wave-packet model of sound generation from large-scale turbulence. We examine heated and unheated jets at Mach numbers of 0.5 and 0.9. Pressure fluctuations associated with large-scale structures are modeled with the Parabolized Stability Equations (PSE) for linear disturbances to the turbulent mean-flow. We show that PSE provides better agreement with near-field microphone-array data at low frequencies than previous models based on linear stability theory. We examine the extent to which microphone data is contaminated by fluctuations uncorrelated with largescale structures. By filtering out the uncorrelated fluctuations, via the proper orthogonal decomposition (POD), better agreement between data and theory is obtained.
