Given a frequency response for a signal processing device, set of devices, or physical space it is possible to construct an equivalent (identical frequency response) series RLC circuit.

1) Does this offer information about the system that the frequency response in and of itself does not?

2) Is the series model the most appropriate model, or is some other configuration more informative?

Many thanks in advance

Maybe you could connect several RLC circuits in parallel that in total give the response you want? A single circuit will only have a single resonant frequency, so I don't know that there's another better way to do this. – Alan Rominger Feb 7 '13 at 0:40
