Loudspeakers, Mutual Coupling and Phantom Images in Rooms

Document Thumbnail

The use of loudspeakers in pairs for the reproduction of two-channel stereo gives rise to mutual coupling effects which compound the usual loudspeaker/room interface problems. In this paper, the performance of pairs of idealized loudspeakers in various idealized acoustic environments is discussed and conclusions are drawn concerning the reproduction of centrally-panned phantom images.
