which I think might be quite slow in practice
You can speed up your simulator/trial/error approach by a factor of about 4.
It somehow seems to pay off to place the mic's in an irregular pattern
the reason for thinking the iterative method would be slow is that it would need a lot of calls to sqrt() as the intersection points of the circles are repeatedly recalculated.
