Wave field synthesis (WFS) is an auralization technique which allows to control the wave field within the entire listening area. However, reflections in the listening room interfere with the auralized wave field and may impair the spatial reproduction. Active listening room compensation aims at reducing these impairments by using the WFS system for their compensation. Current realizations of WFS systems are limited to the reproduction in a plane only. This reduction in dimensionality leads to effects that limit the performance of active room compensation. This paper analyzes these limiting effects on a theoretical and practical basis.
