    meyer sound
    PSW Staff 12/03/15 01:43 PM,
    Large-format line arrays (which we loosely identify as models with 12-inch and larger woofers) are ideal for large-scale concert and event applications, both indoors and outdoors. They really deliver in terms of output, and in many cases, are now much more than simply loudspeakers, better described as fully integrated systems. The vast majority of the models we’re presenting here incorporate dedicated power and DSP packages (onboard or rack mounted), as well as being outfitted with increasingly sophisticated control, networking, and… View this story

    subwoofers
    Gary Parks 09/15/15 01:49 PM,
    Visceral, deep, percussive, tight, punchy – just some of many words used to describe bass response. A prominent low end forms the foundation for many styles of music and helps get the audience moving. Subs are specialized loudspeaker cabinets, typically operating somewhere inside the range between 20 Hz and 150 Hz, and they usually cross over into the full-range mains around 100 Hz. Especially toward the bottom of the range, these LF sounds are felt in the body as much… View this story

    line array
    PSW Staff 08/14/15 12:43 PM,
    Compact line arrays are those we’ve defined as having low-frequency drivers measuring 8 inches or smaller. Array modules in this genre offer a relatively small footprint in terms of size, weight and cost, yet they are capable of delivering significant output. They’re conveniently portable due to the size/weight factor, and are suitable for a range of fixed installations as well. Compact arrays present a scalable solution – a single unit will provide main coverage to a relatively small space, and… View this story

    Looming in the background of recent wireless microphone development lies the growth of high-bandwidth wireless broadband services, smart phones, digital television, and other spectrum-hungry applications. Driven by the repurposing of wide swaths of RF spectrum traditionally used for wireless mics (2010’s clearing of the 700 MHz band, the upcoming Incentive Auction of the 600 MHz band, and their equivalents throughout the world), manufacturers are pursuing solutions so that the wireless mics and similar devices will remain viable in the future. … View this story

    consoles
    Craig Leerman 08/11/14 06:26 PM,
    Digital consoles have certainly changed the way our workflows and the ways we mix. No more cumbersome large-frame analog consoles that take four or more stagehands to move and set up. No more promoters and event planners crying about how much room said large-frame analog console and associated outboard drive and effects racks are occupying at front of house. No more large, heavy analog snake cables to coil up at the end of the gig now that we can run… View this story

    loudspeakers
    PSW Staff 06/09/14 11:01 AM,
    While line arrays get much of the press, the real workhorses of pro audio are traditional 2-way loudspeakers. They remain invaluable for a range of very good reasons, with versatility that translates to “great bang for the buck” topping the list. A quick check of manufacturer websites bears this out, where information on dozens of 2-way models are just a few clicks away. Available in a wide range of sizes and cabinet shapes, they can serve as mains, side fills,… View this story

    digital consoles
    Craig Leerman 05/06/14 02:46 PM,
    Digital consoles are also referred to as “mixing systems,” and it’s an appropriate moniker because in addition to supplying control surfaces with a lot of onboard functionality as well as I/O, they can be further expanded in a variety of ways with the addition of “outboard” capabilities such as offline editing stations, remote apps, interface cards and modules, and of course, digital snakes, networking, and personal monitoring. Offline editing provides the ability to set up patching, scenes and other parameters… View this story

    loudspeakers
    PSW Staff 04/14/14 11:04 AM,
    Despite their rather scant appearance, many modern column loudspeakers deliver exceptional full-range performance, and this can be furthered by companion LF boxes and subwoofers. Although they’ve been around for more than a half-century, column loudspeakers are popular because they offer a compromise solution for those who need efficiency in the vocal range combined with even coverage and a very slim, unobtrusive profile. A look into line source coupling behavior and pattern control tells us that loudspeaker cones exhibit coupling behavior… View this story

    While smaller digital consoles have been getting the lion’s share of attention of late, there’s still a lot going on when it comes to larger models. In the past month or so alone, Yamaha, Soundcraft and Midas have introduced new larger consoles. Solid State Logic (SSL), long noted for its studio consoles, also recently entered the market with the appropriately named “Live” large-format desk. Many mix engineers still rely on larger consoles both for reasons of necessity and personal preference.… View this story
