Line Arrays: Theory and Applications
Line arrays of loudspeakers are often employed to provide increased directivity, generally in the vertical plane. For improved performance, contemporary line arrays employ specially designed loudspeaker elements to provide a nearly continuous line source. However, even these may have "imperfections" relative to a perfect line source. This paper provides mathematical models to evaluate the directivity response of line sources and to quantify the effects of certain imperfections.
