The maximum sound reinforcement attainable in large reverberant halls is highly dependent on the directional properties of the loudspeakers used, particularly in the lower frequency range. A method of designing loudspeakers for unidirectional sound radiation will be presented. Frequency response curves for such loudspeakers will be compared to those for conventional enclosures and applications will be considered.
