    LynTec announces the release of a new white paper titled “New Federal Distribution Transformer Regulations Coming in 2016.” Written by Alan Tschirner, vice president and general manager of LynTec, the document highlights the changes being made by the Department of Energy (DOE) to existing regulations on distribution transformers, and how those changes will make business more costly for manufacturers and audio professionals alike. Audio consultants regularly use distribution transformers to isolate installed sound systems from the rest of a building’s… View this story

    LynTec announces the CTR Series of high-current latching contactor panels for the company’s RPC Series controllers. In conjunction with the controllers, the CTR panels give users the option to control loads — either individually or as part of a sequencing group — that require more power than the maximum 30 amps a motorized circuit breaker can provide. “For some customers, installations are getting more complex, and current loads are getting more demanding. Meanwhile, changes in technology are leading to new… View this story

    To attract the event planners and meeting managers, the Westin Long Beach Hotel in Long Beach, California, recently transformed its large ballroom into a 4-room convertible space with divisible walls. The hotel turned to local integration firm Spinitar to incorporate the latest audio system and technology including equipment protection from Furman. According to Rudy Zavala, associate systems designer at the firm, the goal of the installation came down to three things: simplicity, functionality and reliability. “One big ballroom is great… View this story

    LynTec announces it has added three new circuit count panels to its RPC line of remote-control breaker panels. The new panels make it possible for LynTec customers to add more circuits to their designs in the same horizontal wall space to control a greater number of components, as needed. “Space is always at a premium in electrical closets, which are usually too small to begin with. That’s why we made a point of adding higher-density panels to our offering as… View this story

    This article is provided by Audio Geek Zine.   A power conditioner is one of those items that might be pretty low on the “things to buy” list. But for a home studio, or especially a live recording set-up, definitely consider getting one sooner rather than later. So what is power conditioning? Power conditioning is a kind of vague term to that covers voltage regulation, surge protection, spike protection and noise reduction of the AC power that runs all your… View this story

      Intuition is one of the most valuable tools of the sound system designer. But sometimes intuition can lead us astray. Humans tend to think in terms of linear relationships rather than proportional relationships. But most significant changes in an audio system are related to the proportional change rather than linear change. For example, a 2-to-l power ratio produces a 3 dB increase in level, regardless of the initial power. A 1 watt to 2 watt increase produces the same… View this story
