    Constructed in 1923-1924, the Rialto Theatre in Montreal was inspired by the Neo-baroque-style of the Paris Opera House, and has come to be recognized as one of the most iconic buildings in the city, designated as a National Historic Site of Canada. The Louis XVI style interior was designed by Emmanuel Briffa, designer of more than 60 Canadian movie houses. Despite its glorious design, the Rialto ceased operation as a cinema in 1990, and has since undergone many transformations. Over… View this story

    Sound engineer James “Jimbo” Neal recently selected a pair of VUE Audiotechnik h-15 active loudspeakers for the final leg of the Brian Setzer Orchestra’s Christmas Extravaganza tour. Neal’s objective was to augment the existing Sound Image stage monitors with a compact, high-output side fill system.  “I’ve used many different configurations for side fills over the years, but have always struggled to achieve sufficient coverage and sound quality from a compact footprint,” explains Neal. “My contact at Sound Image recommended that… View this story

    L-Acoustics Certified Provider Audio Video Electronics (AVE) of Maple Grove, Minnesota, reports that it recently installed an L-Acoustics KIVA loudspeaker system at St. Andrews Lutheran Church in nearby Mahtomedi. According to AVE Vice President Kevin Crow, “St. Andrews has a beautiful 1,200-seat sanctuary with a nearly five second reverb time, so going into this project, we knew that speech intelligibility was one of our primary issues of concern. Furthermore, with an 80-member choir, chamber group and huge pipe organ, St.… View this story

    For nearly 60 years Milne Stadium has been home to generations of Albuquerque’s local sporting events. Recently the 6500-seat arena received a wide-ranging makeover, including a new playing surface, new paint and stucco, and a new audio system featuring Community R-Series loudspeakers. As Sound and Signal Systems’ William Hartley explains, the stadium’s previous sound system had been problematic for some time. “A few years ago they installed a new scoreboard behind the end zone, complete with a long-throw, single-point line… View this story

    In the previous segment, we looked at the basic process of using a high-resolution FFT (Fast Fourier Transform) analyzer to view the frequency and phase response of a 12-inch cone driver in a typical 12-inch/2-way loudspeaker. In that segment, we established that the 30-degree off-axis response of the cone driver is substantially lower in level (12 to 18 dB), as well as highly irregular in phase and frequency above approximately 2 kHz, when compared to the driver’s on-axis response (Figure… View this story
