An experimental study of a duct with active noise cancellation both "upstream" and "downstream" of a primary sound source is presented: this is an extension of the common single-channel installations, where sometimes a detrimental sound radiation from the upstream end occurs. The two adaptive feedforward systems, controlled by the filtered–X LMS algorithm, operate almost independently of each other. The duct section between the two secondary sources becomes an acoustical resonator with sound-soft reflection at both ends. Some passive absorption in the duct is advisable to avoid resonance overload of the active components.
