The problem of sound radiation by a system consisting of two vibrating circular pistons embedded in two of three dierent planes perpendicular to one another forming a three-wall corner is considered. The earlier published results dealing with the sound radiation by sources vibrating in a three-wall corner are the basis of analysis. According to the earlier studies, the exact formulae for acoustic power of radiation of two circular pistons are used. The formulae are expressed as double Fourier

The acoustic power of the two sources are expressed in the form of the Rayleigh formulae whereas, in the case of the mirror images, it is expressed in the form of the single series expansion containing spherical Bessel and Neumann functions. In the case of the mutual acoustic power of the sources, approximate formulae are presented for low frequencies. On the basis of the results obtained, the corresponding formulae valid for a two-wall corner are presented as the limiting transitions. All the results presented can be useful, e.g. in designing the room acoustics and outdoor system everywhere the free eld conditions are disturbed by the acoustic waves reected at rigid vertical walls for the wavelengths being considerably shorter than the geometric sizes of the walls.
