    FFT-based field measurement systems have made it possible for us to do phase alignment at fixed installations as well as at live events, where every venue demands a different approach. This is particularly important since mid-high boxes are often flown and subwoofers remain on the ground, meaning that phase differences at the listener location can be very significant. Given the interest in the subject, and the remarkable improvement it can bring to a system, it seems like a good idea… View this story

    Yorkville Sound is now shipping the new Parasource Series of active 2-way loudspeakers that can be utilized for main, fill, and stage monitoring applications. Parasource loudspeakers are available with a 10-, 12- or 15-inch ceramic woofer, joined by a 38 mm (1-inch exit) compression driver feeding a large conical horn that delivers improved constant directivity and improved midrange response. Transducers are bi-amplified, driven by efficient, high-headroom Class D switch-mode power amplifiers with passive cooling that reduce overall cabinet weight. Integrated… View this story

    If one could listen to only the direct sound of a loudspeaker, the world would be a very different place! Unfortunately, free field listening, where you have no reflections, room modes or ambient noise, is hard to achieve in everyday life, so we listen to loudspeakers in real rooms. The interaction of a loudspeaker system and a room can be very complex to understand, model or measure! One way to measure this interaction is to measure the impulse response of… View this story

  • line arrays
    Jeff Berryman 04/09/14 01:57 PM,
    This is a discussion of line array high-frequency output capability, and what it might mean to you. The specific quantity we’re looking at is the frequency response at maximum output power for all drivers. This is the maximum acoustic output of the array as a function of frequency. I will call it the power-bandwidth response. Here’s a question: what power bandwidth must line array elements have in order to deliver a flat frequency response to audience seats? Because of the… View this story

    Your beautiful worship sanctuary is also an “echo chamber”—a less than ideal acoustic environment. Meanwhile, your sound system is also far from ideal, perhaps purchased from the local music store mostly because the price was “right.” Your task, and “no” is not an option: provide intelligible sound to the entire congregation. Even if the musicians and pastor are the best, how many folks will continue to attend when they can only understand every other word? You might be aware that… View this story

    Eighteen Sound  has announced the release of the XG10 line source waveguide with a 1-inch throat entry, which was recently on display at the Prolight+Sound show in Frankfurt. The XG10 has a transmission line acoustic design that minimizes internal reflections and acoustic loss, while the throat shape has been optimized for lowering air distortion. It delivers exceptional performance when paired with an Eighteen Sound 1-inch-exit high-frequency compression driver. The waveguide has been optimized to provide a 10-degree vertical dispersion angle,… View this story
