Boundary Interaction of Diffuse Field Distributed-Mode Radiators
Traditional phase-coherent acoustic radiators are subjected to destructive interference when they interact with their boundaries. A new class of acoustic radiator is discussed whose radiation is spatially and temporally diffuse, mitigating the problem by producing sympathetic boundary reflections. Results from computer simulations for both classes of radiator are presented, and these are compared to single boundary and listening room measurements.
