Time and level localisation curves for a regularly-spaced octagon loudspeaker array
Simon, LSR and Mason, R (2010) Time and level localisation curves for a regularly-spaced octagon loudspeaker array In: 128th Audio Engineering Society Convention, 2010-05-22 - 2010-05-25, London, UK.
Multichannel microphone array designs often use the localisation curves that have been derived for 2-0 stereophony. Previous studies showed that side and rear perception of phantom image locations require somewhat different curves. This paper describes an experiment conducted to determine localisation curves using an octagonal loudspeaker setup. Various signals with a range of interchannel time and level differences were produced between pairs of adjacent loudspeakers, and subjects were asked to evaluate the perceived sound event’s direction and its locatedness. The results showed that the curves for the side pairs of adjacent loudspeakers are significantly different to the front and rear pairs. The resulting curves can be used to derive suitable microphone techniques for this loudspeaker setup.
