    It’s a Monday afternoon and I get a phone call from a local production company to work a press event the following day at a local race track (local being an hour and half away). I accept the gig and the next day hop on my bike (the motor-driven type) and go to the track, and specifically, the large circus-type tent where the event is being staged. No equipment truck in sight, of course. A quick phone call to my… View this story

    Over the years, in my many encounters with church building committees, there’s often a common theme: The desire to build a room that can be utilized for a multitude of functions, including worship, special events, dinners, receptions…the list goes on. It’s a discussion filled with looking toward the future, and one that necessitates compromise in order to accommodate any number of issues. For example, wouldn’t it have been nice—25 years ago—if the building committee had considered that there might be… View this story

    Provided by Sweetwater.   Q: Despite my experience within the A/V industry (I wont say how long it’s been), I’ve never quite gotten the hang of everything. Admittedly, this is because I’m a bit more of a video expert, but I’d like to remedy that. So I wanted to get clarification on a few things. The largest (and perhaps most important) being, how do I choose the correct gauge of wire for loudspeakers? A: Selection of the appropriate wire gauge… View this story

    differential inputs
    Pat Brown 10/01/13 03:31 AM,
    Take a free lesson in a SynAudCon web-based training course   Mechanical analogies can be very useful for under standing electrical concepts. Electricity, that unseen force that powers much of the world around us, is an abstract concept to most people because we can’t see it or touch it safely. The simple mechanical system of a bicycle can provide understanding of a common electrical circuit - the differential input. One of the best ways to avoid extraneous noise pickup in… View this story

    Editor’s Note: Nothing discussed here is true… Right? :>) Check any good handbook of physical constants and you will find that silver has much lower resistivity than copper. In fact, silver has the lowest resistivity of anything that is solid at room temperature, and is thus suitable for making wires. However, the practical solution is to use thicker copper. Still, to avoid the debilitating nature of skin effects, the best solution is to use silver plated copper wire.  Of course,… View this story

    amplifier damping
    Jerrold Stevens 05/13/13 02:21 PM,
    Ever have one of your friendly amplifier reps walk in your office to present their new mondo-gazillion-watt beast and point out the damping factor spec of greater than a bazillion? Why, gee-whiz! That’s like 10 times more than the other guy! It must be awesome! Right? Well, as we have seen before, it depends on how you are going to use it. Let’s start with defining damping factor and see what it means to us. Amplifier damping factor is defined… View this story

    Motorized winches. Lift machines. Line shaft winches. Cable drum winches. Whatever you want to call them, they’re everywhere these days, with more coming. To ride the wave, however, a lot more understanding has to be brought on board. (Get it? Wave…board?) Winches that are designed to lift scenery, lighting or other heavy stuff is what we’re talking about. Please don’t confuse them with machines used for opening and closing curtains on traveler tracks. They are a whole different animal and… View this story
