Today's sound reinforcement requires systems which are compact, produce high SPLs, and have controlled, even dispersion. Computer simulation allows us to find some answers to these frequently conflicting demands. Simulation helps us to design systems and to predict their behavior when they are arrayed. By using examples, this paper attempts to show that these theoretical tools can help provide solutions to real world sound-reinforcement problems and whether or not the models truly reflect reality.
