While there has been a wealth of research on the syntax, semantics, and pragmatics of human-robot communication, there has been less attention paid to the \textit{acoustics} of robot communication. In this work, we define two key problems central to the acoustics of HRI: (1) Proxemics-Guided Dyadic Acoustics, and (2) Acoustics-Guided Dyadic Proxemics. We present an initial mathematical solution to these problems, and present proof-of-concept validation of our solution to the Proxemics-Guided Dyadic Acoustics problem.
