Various array patterns, such as circular, linear, and arc-shaped arrays, have been used in multi-zone sound field reproduction, but most of them are based on empirical rather than judicious selection. This article proposes an iterative optimization method to select the loudspeaker positions from a large set of candidate locations. Both the number and locations of the loudspeakers can be designed with superior performance. Both single-frequency and broadband simulations based on the acoustic contrast control method are performed to validate the proposed scheme, and the performance of the optimized array is compared with that of an arc-shaped array and that of an array optimized with an existing method.
