Spat5 panning type for non-sweetspot installation

Hello all, I am working on a future installation that will use 32 speakers. The speakers will be mounted along the walls and ceiling. I was wondering if you could recommend a panning type that would work best for a sound installation where there will be no sweet spot.

For this kind of sound installations, I usually recommend KNN-panning which is a distance-based technique (distance between virtual source and loudspeakers).
Hope this will work for you.

Awesome thank you!


For people who feel like they have hit the sweet spot of privacy level, for people who feel like they are very pragmatic and invest just the right amount of effort to obtain a sufficient level of privacy and proud of this setup from the bottom of their heart - What’s your setup? Why did you 9Apps Showbox choose a setup like this?
