Sound zones enable multiple simultaneous sound experiences in the same physical room without interference. In this paper, we present an interactive sound zone setup that can produce two sound zones within a confined space. Through a tangible remote controller, users can change the volume, size, and position of these sound zones. In addition, we have built a custom visualisation display that provides real-time feedback of the sound zones to support users' understanding. Sound zone systems pose novel challenges for the HCI community, including how users may understand and interact with sound zones. Our setup offers a concrete solution into investigating these challenges.
