A Directional Loudspeaker Array for Surround Sound in Reverberant Rooms

  title={A Directional Loudspeaker Array for Surround Sound in Reverberant Rooms},
  author={Terence Betlehem and Colin E Anderson and Mark A. Poletti},
We present a method to enhance the performance of the sound field reproduction approach to 2-D surround sound applicable for reverberant rooms, under the constraint that only a small number of loudspeakers is permissible. The method is based on the idea of using steerable directional loudspeakers to exploit the room reverberation. In home theater applications, exact sound field reproduction is currently handicapped by the unreasonably large numbers of loudspeakers required for operation over… CONTINUE READING
