Methods are shown for calculating Q at different positions in the listening plane of a distributed system and in different directions for a central array. The total power radiated onto different surfaces, the positional or directional dependence of the critical distance, and the articulation loss of consonants can be found. For central arrays, design overlays can be created. For distributed systems, design graphs are included for several example loudspeakers.
