Learning Objectives

Understand the acoustic behavior of a variable curvature line source and its sonic performances over the audience
Master the physical deployment of a variable curvature line so that electronic adjustments become optimization rather than correction
Design a variable curvature line source in Soundvision software, using advanced setting tools for inter-element angles and FIR filters
