The Radiation Characteristics of a Horizontally Asymmetrical Waveguide that Utilizes a Continuous Arc Diffraction Slot
One of the unique requirements for sound reinforcement speaker systems is the need for flexible coverage control‚Äîsometimes this requires an asymmetrical pattern. Vertical control can be achieved by arraying sound sources, but in the horizontal plane, a horizontally asymmetrical waveguide may be the best solution. In this paper the radiation characteristics of horizontally asymmetrical waveguides with continuous arc diffraction slots are discussed. Waveguides with several different angular variations are developed and their radiation characteristics are measured. Symmetrical and asymmetrical waveguides are compared, and the controllable frequency range and limitations are discussed.
