The commonly used split vector quantization (SVQ) method is inferior to unconstrained quantization due to independent coding of the split subvectors, resulting in a coding loss. In this paper, we propose a conditional PDF-based split vector quantization (CSVQ) method to recover the coding loss. The CSVQ method is developed assuming the line spectrum frequency source distribution as a multivariate Gaussian and the subvectors are quantized sequentially to exploit the correlation between the subvectors. The new CSVQ method is evaluated for wideband speech LSF quantization; CSVQ is shown to outperform traditional SVQ and provide comparable performance to the recently proposed switched split vector quantization (SSVQ) method. In addition, the transform domain SVQ method is also realized to show that its performance is limited by the distance measure used in the transform domain.
