    PSW Top 20 presented by Renkus-Heinz   “Subwoofers should be located on the floor if at all possible.” This is one of those classic bits of audio “conventional wisdom.” I hear it from system operators on nearly every project. But is it true? If we look at the physics of sound, we learn that, as with most things in the world of audio, “it depends.” So let’s start by discussing why the floor might indeed be a good place to… View this story

    Phil Vaught isn’t your ordinary country artist, so it’s no surprise that he won’t settle for ordinary equipment. When the crossover musician recently needed new monitors for the 200 performances that take him all over the country, annually, he chose FBT’s StageMaxX 12ma. The wedges, which he praises for their “big sound in a little box,” have turned out to be just as impressive – and unique - as Vaught’s music. Influenced by artists ranging from Elvis to Foreigner, and… View this story

    When metalcore band Return to Rome learned it was going to perform at the Reading and Leeds Festivals in England, founding member and current bass player Harri Lowe became laser focused on the finer points of sound and tone. Lowe selected Harman’s dbx 676 Tube Preamp Channel Strip for the performance because of the depth and clarity it brings to the band’s sound. Lowe got his hands on the dbx 160A at his first studio job at an independent label,… View this story

    Karl Winkler’s reference to “great quotes” in his recent column (here) got me thinking about the many (too many to count, in fact) insightful comments that have appeared on the pages of ProSoundWeb and Live Sound International over the years. It lead to a weekend of reading more than a hundred archived articles, and from them, I’ve drawn the following quotes about the world of pro audio. “People don’t come to hear me mix, they come to hear the act.… View this story

    The other day while testing one of our new products, I noticed significant resonance in the low end. But the last time we tested the same device, it was not there. What changed? Well, it turned out that the polarity reverse switch had been turned on. As simple as this may sound, depressing the switch completely cleaned up the low-end resonance and mud. What was actually occurring was the room resonance at one of the given frequencies happened to be… View this story

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   Since the vocalist is the only musician who can’t put their instrument away in a protective case after the gig or rehearsal, it’s important to take very good care of it. Eventually every singer has some vocal trouble, and if you’re not careful, it can really lead to long term damage. That’s why it’s important for a singer to learn to be especially aware of the need to take care of him… View this story

    In many ways, loudspeaker technology is the primary limiting factor in sound reinforcement system design and performance. Transducers are always problematic, having to comply with the laws of thermodynamics and all. Not only are they inefficient at turning electric energy into acoustic energy, they also add a significant amount of distortion to the signal during the process. Some years ago I was in Washington, D.C., doing research for a potential patent for a vibration reducing device, and I came across… View this story
