Sound reinforcement svstems use multiple loudspeakers to increase the power of sounds, so that artists can communicate with large audiences.
To perform accurately, a reinforcement system must act like a single sound source, radiating a coherent arc of sonic energy. The only way to do this is with a curved array in which the speakers combine acoustically to produce a single wavefront.
Coherence By Design
In 1980, Meyer Sound created the first curved loudspeaker arrays. And spawned a host of imitations. Today, curved arrays are everywhere. After all, arranging loudspeakers in an arc is a pretty simple chore.
