    Juice Goose is now shipping the CQ 1 (“Qiwi”), a new concept in AC power sequencing that fits in a 2-gang wall enclosure and functions without a master control device, meeting a need for distributed, non-racked power control presented by the proliferation of powered loudspeakers. Qiwi operates just like the other Juice Goose CQ Series models with plug-and-play networking simplicity. It’s 15-amp duplex turns on with a single sequence event. Like other CQ models, the Qiwi has a sequence signal… View this story

    One of the topics that I’ve seen poorly understood, and even deliberately used to mislead people, is the issue of wireless microphone transmitter power and the effects said power has on system performance. Let’s start with the basics: all things being equal, more transmitter power = more range for the system, but not in a linear way. In broad terms, when discussing analog wireless systems, the receiver wants to see a signal from a transmitter (carrier) that is at least… View this story

    Crown Audio is now shipping the four highest-powered models in its DriveCore Install (DCi) Series of power amplifiers. Available in both DCi Analog and DCi Network Ethernet-linkable configurations, the 4-channel and 2-channel amplifiers deliver 1,250 watts per channel into 2, 4 or 8 ohms, as well as 70 volts rms and 100 volts rms (all channels driven; 2,500 watts in bridged mode). The models include the DCi Analog 4-channel DCi4|1250 and 2-channel DCi2|1250, and the DCi Network 4-channel DCi4|1250N and… View this story

    Ashly’s nX family of two- and four-channel power amplifiers has been expanded with the addition of twelve new 800 Watt and 400 Watt models. These medium output amplifiers are the perfect complement to the high-output 3,000W and 1,500W nX models. All nX Series amplifiers feature Ashly’s programmable outputs on each individual channel using rear panel DIP switches to select Low-Z (down to 2 Ohms), or High-Z, (70V or 100V) constant-voltage outputs. The nX8004 has four channels rated at 800 watts… View this story

    Provided by Sweetwater.   Q: I have what may seem like a silly question, but I’ve been racking my brain and I can’t seem to come up with the answer. Well, not really a question, really, but I keep getting confused by this: “The continuous load on a fuse in an enclosure should not exceed what percent of its rating?” You see, I’m doing some work, and I noticed that the above question does not indicate enclosure size, which in… View this story

    LynTec has introduced the new Remote Power Control Mobile (RPCM), the first intelligent power distribution panel to bring three distinct new features to mobile power distribution, including motorized circuit breakers, current monitoring at the branch circuit level, and remote monitoring capabilities. Attendees of the upcoming LDI 2013 show in Las Vegas (Nov. 22-24) can get working demonstrations of the new RPCM at booth 1367. “We are thrilled to introduce our groundbreaking RPCM mobile power distro at LDI 2013,” states Mark… View this story

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   My buddy Nick Batzdorf (a name that should ring a bell with those of you who read recording magazines) wrote a great piece about the new supercapacitors over at The gist of the article is that the new devices are rapidly revolutionizing energy storage, replacing the traditional chemical battery, which will make a difference in many of the items in our everyday lives, from phones to electric cars. Supercapacitors beat batteries… View this story

    I felt the need to write this article after a recent cross-country trip, and I’m pretty sure many of you can relate to my experience. At a newer, modern airport, I was waiting to board a connecting flight, and everything appeared to be going as planned until the departure time suddenly changed on the monitor - a one hour delay. However, I never learned the reason for the delay, because the gate attendant making the announcement either had the mic… View this story

    Do I really need an AC (alternating current) power conditioner or regulator? Isn’t my surge protector enough? Two of the most commonly asked questions regarding power, for sure. Answers, in part, come from an understanding of modern-day realities. AC power is far noisier and contaminated than at any time since its inception. This is due not only to an increased population taxing utility lines, but also because of the proliferation of computers and microprocessors. These devices typically run on switching… View this story
