Abstract: The thesis deals with optimized large-scale sound reinforcement using line source arrays. This is treated as a sound field synthesis problem. The synthesis of a virtual source via the line source array allows for audience adapted wavefront shaping. For practical array designs and setups this is affected by the deployed loudspeakers and their arrangement, its electronic control and spatial aliasing occurrence. The influence of these parameters is discussed with array signal processing revisiting the Wavefront Sculpture Technology and proposing Wave Field Synthesis as a suitable control method.
