The Design of Three Unusual Loudspeakers for the High Court of Australia

Document Thumbnail

Three unusual loudspeaker systems providing specific radiation patterns were designed as part of the overall design of a sound reinforcement system for the High Court of Australia. The first loudspeaker is an acoustically curved line array utilizing 34 drivers; the second is an array of dipole loudspeakers, each housed in a trough; and the third is a short tapered line array using six drivers and a tweeter. Primary requirements for each loudspeaker were architectural shape and finish, radiation pattern, and frequency response. The integration of these requirements necessitated a holistic approach to the design. This paper discusses the design process, the hardware realization, and the performance of each loudspeaker.
