Much Later after research and design engineering stints at Shure, Electro-Voice, and other places I wanted to add a ribbon mic to my new microphone company. But I wanted something a little different from a standard figure 8 design. I was fascinated with the multi pattern/non figure… View this story

    System designers interested in understanding room acoustics, loud-speaker characteristics and how they act in enclosed spaces are encouraged to attend SynAudCon’s “Sound System Design” in-person seminar scheduled for February 22-24, 2016 in Houston, Texas. The in-person seminar, presented by SynAudCon owner Pat Brown, presents a logical, intuitive, and comprehensive approach to sound system design that begins with analysis of the room’s acoustics. From there attendees learn how to select and place loudspeakers to achieve speech intelligibility and music clarity. In… View this story

    PSW Top 20 presented by Renkus-Heinz   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 for… View this story
