    HK Audio unveiled the LUCAS Nano (Lightweight Ultra Compact Active System) for the U.S. market at the recent Summer NAMM 2012 show in Nashville.

    In the days before InfoComm, representatives from Danley Sound Labs arranged an impromptu demonstration of the Danley Jericho Horn family of beefy point-source loudspeakers for long-throw applications. The team rented a 25kV generator and a lift and found an undeveloped industrial park in the desert adjacent to Nellis Air Force Base. Although originally arranged for the benefit of a few representatives from a large university who were considering a Danley Jericho system for their stadium, word of mouth swelled the… View this story

    The number of music festivals being staged around the world has grown tremendously over the past decade or so. They’re a huge draw for good reason – audiences get several hours (and sometimes even a couple/few days) of live music, provided by artists of diverse or similar styles (something for everyone’s tastes), and usually at a reasonable price. Tributefest in Santa Clarita, CA (just north of Los Angeles) is emblematic of this thriving genre. Held in the city’s beautiful Central… View this story

The maximum force for a given current and magnetic field will occur when the current is flowing perpendicular to the magnetic field. In a moving coil loudspeaker, a coil of wire is immersed in an air gap in a magnetic circuit. The magnetic field is “radially”… View this story
