1. A method for dynamically positioning audio signals in an environment comprising the steps of:

  • receiving audio coordinate values for the outputs of a given sound source;

    providing a matrix of values defining individual spatial positions within said environment;

    comparing said coordinate values with said matrix of values to provide attenuated amplitude levels for sound source outputs; and

    mixing signals from said sound source outputs through a coupler to four transducers to be reproduced thereat, wherein different attenuated amplitude levels apply to each of said four transducers.
