A General Approach to Loudspeaker Array Synthesis Methods

Document Thumbnail

Loudspeakers arrays are often used by sound reinforcement in large concert halls and outdoor events to provide increased directivity. Unlike to what happens in the loudspeaker systems, there is an entrenched theory in antenna array synthesis, which has been used extensively over the past few years. This paper focus on discussing several consolidated antenna array’s synthesis methods. Then, a simulation’s software is implemented to show theirs pros and cons for using a loudspeaker array. Finally, an efficient synthesis method is proposed to achieve the required characteristics.
