The basic components of a monophonic system can be adapted to two-channel stereo by adding yet another channel of amplification and an additional speaker system as shown in Fig. 15.6. The sytem is designed to have each speaker reproduce the sound which is present at its corresponding position at the source.
In stereo practice, proper positioning of the equipment and audience is an important consideration. Another important consideration is speaker and microphone placement—how far apart the microphones should be from each other when recording and how far the speakers should be from each other when reproducing the recording.
