Distance perception of the composite sound image reproduced by multiple loudspeakers, which were placed facing (near and far) a listener on a horizontal plane, was investigated. The multiple loudspeakers were placed at different distances in front of the listener, and reproduced both phantom and real sound images. The results of subjective evaluations showed the possibility that phantom sound images could be composed by the near and far loudspeakers and that listeners could distinguish their distance from it among the real sound images presented by each loudspeaker.
