The parametric loudspeaker has difficulty in reproducing the audible sound only to near-field. In this paper, we therefore propose a near-field sound propagation method based on individual delay-filtering for the carrier and multiple sideband waves. In the proposed method, their waves are emitted to different directions using the parametric array loudspeaker consists of multiple line-type parametric loudspeakers. The method can realize the near-field sound propagation because the audible area, which their waves are composited, is limited near to the parametric array loudspeaker.
