The concept is based on the recreation of the sound in a classical shoebox size concert hall. Therefore the audience surface is divided in the dimensions of such a hall. Per hall the direct sound (for good localisation and definition) and reverberant sound (for the acoustical ambiance) of a shoeboxhall is recreated by central clusters and lines of loudspeakers on the virtual walls. Experience with the concept for a 70,000 p audience will be reported.
