The audio quality of flat panel loudspeakers may be improved dramatically by selectively driving specific panel modes using an array of force actuators distributed on the panel surface. An optimal actuator array layout will maximize the energy coupling between the actuators and selected panel modes, while simultaneously eliminating modal crosstalk within the operating frequency band. We present results for optimal force...
