The image source method is used to identify early reflections which have a re-enforcement effect on the sound traveling within an enclosure. The distribution of absorptive material within the enclosure is optimised to produce the desired re-enforcement effect. This is applied to a monitor mix and a feedback prevention case study. In the former it is shown that the acoustic path gain of the vocals can be increased relative to the acoustic path gain of the other instruments. In the latter it is shown that the acoustic path from loudspeaker to microphone can be manipulated to increase the perceived signal level before the onset of acoustic feedback.
