We manipulate the source distance, emission position and number of negative-index collimation beam in a two-dimensional hybrid sonic crystal by using band-gap waveguide to control the flow of acoustic waves from a point source. The desired beam manipulations can be achieved at many different frequencies by suitably selecting the first order resonant mode of two crystal components and the waveguide structures. These results have potential applications in acoustic mutifunctional directional emission and acoustic integrated circuits. The proposed approach is also applicable for the similar manipulations of other types of acoustic collimation beams.
