Acoustic crosstalk cancellation is a signal processing technique whereby two (or possibly more) loudspeakers are used to deliver desired signals exactly at the listener's ears. Such a system is useful for three-dimensional (3-D) audio applications, and removes the requirement for the listener to wear headphones. However, crosstalk cancelers are notoriously nonrobust to slight movements in head position. Recently, a system consisting of two closely spaced loudspeakers (referred to as the "stereo-dipole") has been proposed to improve the robustness of the crosstalk canceler. In this letter we present a robustness analysis of the two-channel crosstalk canceler, and derive optimum loudspeaker positions.
