Multichannel Microphone Array Design (Root Arrays)
5 Channel Microphone Array Design for FRONT SOUND STAGE COVERAGE using CARDIOID Microphones

The first stage in the selection of a specific Multichannel Microphone Array
is the choice of the Front Triplet Coverage

The Front Triplet Coverage determines the part of the original sound field that will be reproduced
by the front set of loudspeakers. The left front segment (in red) will be reproduced between the
left-hand front loudspeaker and the centre loudspeaker, whilst the right front segment (in green)
will be reproduced between the centre and the right-hand loudspeakers, as shown on the right
by the red and green segments of the multichannel loudspeaker configuration.
