    This article is provided by Church   I coined a phrase circa 1989 known as the “Looks About Right” approach to sound system design. It denotes any design effort that simply “guesses” at where a loudspeaker might work well, lacking any effort to prove it out with the design tools so readily available. Of course it needed an acronym, and soon became known as the LAR factor, and was even included in one of the chapters that I wrote… View this story

    Martin Audio has announced an upgrade to Display, the software brain of the MLA Series. Display is the numerical optimization process that eliminates trial-and-error tuning sessions, so that an MLA Series system achieves the required audience coverage. Based on an acoustic model of array behavior, it gives a prediction of the direct sound produced over the audience as well as areas where sound is to be minimized. It takes the guesswork out of array design, deployment and control ─ generating… View this story

Now let’s get to the fun stuff: choosing key technologies and system design. This is the point in the process that we start to pick out the big picture items of the project. Sometimes the church… View this story
