The Loudspeaker and Control Room as a Wholly Integrated System

The recording studio control room and its loudspeaker monitor system have been the target of a wide variety of design techniques over the past years. The design and the measured performance of a loudspeaker and control room in which the monitor loudspeaker is horn coupled to the room are discussed. The console and the room become a manifold section of the horn. This provides an increase in the efficiency of conversion of electric input power to acoustic output power, extends the lower frequency limit, and improves the response. Other features of the room design provide a nominal control over the ratio of direct to indirect sound while maintaining excellent diffusion, eliminating critical listening positions. All other requirements of the physical and architectural and optical parameters of a control room are accommodated without compromise.
