Imaging and Loudspeaker Directivity: To Beam or Not to Beam

Document Thumbnail

Through the years we have learned much about which measurements can most accurately predict the way loudspeakers will sound in domestic listening rooms. As a result, we are better able to make loudspeakers that will sound the way we want them to sound. One of the most important design elements is loudspeaker directivity. This paper discusses means for controlling directivity in loudspeakers meant for home use, and how these design choices affect what we hear.
