A method of analysis of sound reinforcement problems by means of active and passive speech zones is outlined. The need for automatic control of multimicrophone systems is defined, along with the problems associated with the use of voice-operated switches (VOX). Adaptive threshold gating is proposed as the best solution to the problem of active microphone direction. The development and performance of two effective automatic control systems is described.
