Sound power radiation of dipole and bipole sources

  1. Nov 12, 2014 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    For a fixed given electrical power to two monopole sources, producing the same frequency. Which mode, either in-phase or out of phase, will radiate the most sound power into the far-field?

    2. Relevant equations
    Is the radiated sound power dependant of the given electrical power? Or is the radiated sound power dependant on the different radiation patterns of the sources (i.e. figure of 8 for a dipole)?

    3. The attempt at a solution

    sound power ?

    dipoles and monopoles are for RF transmission
    please clarify

    Apologies. I should have been more specific. Assume the sources are two small loudspeakers radiating low frequencies, ie omnidirectional radiation.
