Sound field control involves the generation and manipulation of acoustic fields using electroacoustic transducers . This encompasses spatial audio reproduction , zonal sound control , active absorption or reflection of sound , and active noise control . In all of these technologies either loudspeakers or structural-acoustic actuators are used to produce a sound field with a controlled spatial and temporal distribution. For example, in the context of spatial audio an array of loudspeakers may be driven to reconstruct a pre-defined sound field, such as that experienced in a concert hall during an orchestral performance .
