Cloaking an object in 3D sound. Like a submarine for instance.


First microwave, now sound. Pretty soon a full Klingon/Romulan cloaking device.

At Philips, we are obsessed with Sound. So we hope our consumers can enjoy optimal sound playback with our products. You can configure your sound system for maximum impact with the following advice from the pros:Place your speakers equal distances from each other and from the listening area, roughly in the shape of an equilateral triangle. This improves the stereo effect and your sound experience in the centre of the room.Angle both the left and right speakers towards the area where youll be doing most of your listening. This gives you an even bigger sweet spot.Place your speakers at the same height, preferably in line with your ears. Itll mean hearing more detail, especially at high frequencies.Where you position your speakers has an effect on bass performance. If you place speakers against a wall or in the corner of the room, youll experience extra bass but possibly with too much boom. Position them in the middle of the room and the bass will be less intense, but more precise.To stop your speakers from vibrating, place them on a flat, stable surface. Heavy furniture made of wood is best.
