The theory of a new method of measuring acoustic intensity is presented. The method uses measurements of the cross spectrum of the pressures at two closely spaced microphones. To eliminate the measurement error due to instrument phase mismatch, a circuit switching procedure is used. The method is applicable to any acoustic field subject to the condition that the product of the wave number and the microphone spacing remains small. The method has been verified by laboratory experiment.
