If your system is like in your pic in post #75, you may note the center speaker is having about 6dB less direct sound in the midrange than the side speakers since the baffle step occurs in considerable higher in frequency. In addition your heavily absorbed front wall makes the center speaker a 4pi radiator while side speakers are radiating in 2pi. This gain mismatch is the propable reason to unstable center phantoms you experience.

Have you tried with speakers being all identical ?

I think, and it looks like that in theory, if the listening is performed in a strict miniature spot without lateral movements, the speaker arch with identical distances to the listening position may be better. However for any off-center listener the speaker line looks like a much better alternative. And here I'm not thinking about tiny head movements of few cm but large shifts like up to 1m.

Personally I dont like tiny listening spots. Currently I have my 3 speakers in a line and it works well in almost everywhere in my room.

I used the search function and found this post from KSTR:

Horn vs. Waveguide
post #884

If anyone is interested, I have some detailed insight of James Bongiorno's "Trinaural" (a subset of the "Optimum Linear Matrix", as described by Michael Miles). Could even give you the detailed schematic (but I won't, of course. I respect IP).

Basically it's an an ultra-simply analog matrix, completely LTI (if you have balanced connections, 13 resistors will do it damn close to the real thing). And it works like charms... I swear. It creates an artifical but very supportive (for the illusion that stereo is all about, anyway) sensation of a different vertical size/expansion/pattern, giving way more seperation between instruments and between direct and reverberant sounds (as encoded in the recording). It not easy to describe that in words (for me as a non-native speaker, at least).

And the sweet spot is huge (laterally). Toe-In of speakers (that is, "trading" as the effect in stereo psychoacoustics is called, compensating dT with dL) doesn't work for me at all to widen the sweet spot. It still is pretty balanced stereo in the lower registers, but all sensation of space is lost. Sondstage collapses to a straight 1D line between the speakers.

But not in this thread. Better we go here :
Linear 2-->3 Rematrixing for Speaker Signals

- Klaus

If this is indeed correct, then Trinaural equations are based on coefficient of 0.5. And my question in original post has been answered Thank you.

That is because of a time arrival issue. If you are sitting along the center line between the L/R speakers, the center speaker is actually closer to you than the L/R are. This will perceptively reduce the stereo seperation of the L/R mains in favor of a strong mono center image.

Which is a forerunner of the "energy-preserving matrix decoder" which in turn is a forerunner of the "frequency-dependent energy-preserving matrix decoder" to which I'm listening right now

What about directivity? I finally had 2 hours for myself last night and experimented with three quickly made pipe speakers, matrix from my old denon receiver and dayton RS100. It works! More so on hard panned effects than orchestras but it's a good start. Only two drivers at the opposite end of a horizontal pipe worked well too, sounds a bit like a corner setup in some ways.
Is omnidirectionality good in the mids? Wouldn't a narrower CD all the way down to 100-200hz be better? I know, not an easy thing to achieve.. but I feel there is considerable leak in that range going straight to the ear and not towards the wall..

It's the old question for which we still don't have a good answer, "How much room is needed?", i.e. what reflection pattern is optimal.

Sure, but for this specific application it seems to me you ONLY want the room!
BTW, a corner setup sounds good too. It shows that stereo needs quite a large spread to works well, in my opinion..

So you have done something similar to Stereolith ?

maybe?
I am very keen to know what you have to say about the directivity issue.
