      The most common reference distance for loudspeaker SPL specifications is 1 meter (3.28 feet). The choice is one of convenience – any distance will do. The 1 m reference simplifies distance attenuation calculations by eliminating the division required in the first step:   Loudspeakers must be measured at a distance beyond which the shape of the radiation balloon remains unchanged. The changes are caused by path length differences to different points on the surface of the device. These differences… View this story

Based on an acoustic model of array behavior, it gives a precise prediction of the direct sound produced over the audience as well as areas where sound is to be minimized. It takes the guesswork out… View this story

Installations employing ceiling-mounted loudspeakers, such as offices, restaurants and schools are examples of distributed sound systems. Other examples include installations requiring long cable runs, such as stadiums, factories and convention centers. The need to do… View this story
