The Design of Three Unusual Loudspeakers for the High Court of Australia

Three unusual loudspeaker systems providing specific radiation patterns were designed as part of the overall design of a sound reinforcement system for the High Court of Australia. The first loudspeaker was a distributed array of dipole loudspeakers, each housed in a trough; the second was an acoustically curved line array utilizing 34 drivers; and the third was a short tapered line array utilizing six drivers and a tweeter. Primary requirements for each loudspeaker were its architectural shape and finish, radiation pattern, and frequency response. The integration of these requirements necessitated a holistic approach to the design of each loudspeaker. The design process, the hardware implementation, and the performance of each loudspeaker are discussed.
