The current state of the art provides many ways of delivering the omnidirectional sound source for acoustic modelling. They are complicated and unreachable for most scientists to recreate, which is a common problem while constructing optimal, high-quality omnidirectional sound source creates with multiple transducers placed uniformly on the sphere is still unsolved and not describe in detail. This paper provided a quick review of existing omnidirectional sound sources ideas and compared them with conventional, multi-speakers design. Some principles on traditional speaker design concepts are presented, like the dependency between the number of transducers or their size on overall source performance. A novel approach to the complex and detailed omnidirectional sound source design process be discussed.
