Sometimes required due to a last minute whim or poor planning and at other times budgeted, selected, configured, and optimized with as much care as the primary loudspeakers, fill speakers are a commonplace fixture in our work in live sound. Aside from the obvious need, fill speakers are also employed very effectively for imaging/localization in some types of productions. Additional care/coordination must sometimes be provided in some applications to reduce the visibility of these (as well as the primary) loudspeakers and without unintended compromises in the electroacoustic performance of the system.
