By PSW Staff • July 30, 2014 SynAudCon’s much-lauded “Sound Reinforcement For Technicians” in-person training is coming to Charlotte, NC this coming September 17-19. Sound Reinforcement For Technicians is 3-day multimedia training program that puts learning in the hands of the attendees. The Charlotte sessions will be presented by SynAudCon owner and primary instructor Pat Brown. “When working on sound systems, we need numbers,” explains Brown. “Output level? Impedance of loudspeakers? System polarity? This course is about learning how to take those measurements—and more—and how to interpret that data.” Sound Reinforcement For Technicians features an innovative iPod controlled hardware interface that emulates the instruments needed to take sound system measurements. Via SynAudCon’s signal distribution system, each attendee will be able to measure voltage, impedance, polarity, SPL and STIPA with the instrument. More importantly, they learn what these measurements mean, and how to use them to ensure that the system is performing optimally. The training seminar also walks attendees through the process of troubleshooting a sound reinforcement system and covers a number of topics including system gain structure, grounding and shielding, amplifier selection and system tuning. Day 3 is the presentation of a the step-by-step loudspeaker equalization process. “Sound Reinforcement for Technicians puts meters in hands,” adds Brown. “You make the connections, you take the readings, you draw conclusions – that is what being a complete audio practitioner is all about.” The seminar, approved for 24 InfoCommRUs and 21 BICSICECs, will be held at Neutik USA’s facilities in Charlotte. Price is $895 USD. Register online here or call Brenda Brown at 812-923-0174. SynAudCon Comments Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
