    ATK Audiotek (Valencia, CA) deployed 104 Powersoft K10 power amplifiers to drive loudspeakers serving the recent Democratic National Convention at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia. The systems served more than 180 speeches and 15 musical performances across the four-day duration of the event. ATK Audiotek, which also served the Republican National Convention in Cleveland the week prior, was charged with delivering reliable audio with high speech intelligibility for both events. This effort was led by ATK head system tech… View this story

    LynTec announces the addition of Telnet control to the company’s complete line of RPC series power control panels. Telnet expands RPC’s interface options, strengthening the lineup’s onboard monitoring and control capabilities from any remote location. “Installations are moving toward a shared Ethernet backbone, and we added Telnet to the TCP/IP protocol to meet the need for simple monitoring and control over the network,” says Mark Bishop, president of LynTec. “As a manufacturer, we have the most choices for control of… View this story

      With the wealth of knowledge about power available here on ProSoundWeb it’s a good idea to constantly evaluate our knowledge of power, or actually, your knowledge about power. Rather than submit you to the typical “right or wrong” questions with exact numerical answers, I’ve elected to provide a different means of self-evaluation. The test is “open book”, based upon the information shared in the article series and other resources, and I can tell you up front that the answer… View this story

    Festival season, in particular, means dealing with portable generators for show power. At performance venues, we hardly give power a second thought, simply handing our tails or feeder to the house electrician to tie into the “company switch.” Then we check the voltages at the distro end with a meter to make sure everything is connected properly, and that’s usually it – no more thinking about the power until it’s time to disconnect at the end of the gig. The… View this story

    phantom power
    Bruce Bartlett 06/21/16 06:22 AM,
    This article is provided by Bartlett Audio.   Unsure about phantom power? Let’s clear up the mystery. Nearly all mixing consoles and audio interfaces provide phantom power at their microphone input connectors. Most condenser mics need phantom power to operate, so you simply plug the mic into the mixer to power it. But the ways we use and connect phantom power can make a big difference in how well those mics work. So what, exactly is phantom power, and how… View this story

      How much power can an audio amplifier produce? As you might expect, “it depends.” I will approach this from two angles—in theory and in practice. This article will deal with the theory. Part 3 will show how things play out in the real world. Importance Of Efficiency Amplifiers don’t make power. They convert it. Any audio power that comes from your amplifier must in turn come from the utility outlet that it is connected to. This is why the… View this story

    Provided by Live Sound Advice.   No, it’s not the name of an insurance company or a European sports car—GFCI is an abbreviation/acronym for Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter. They’ve been required in many localities for electrical outlets located near sinks or the outside of residences since the early 1970s. The two types of GFCIs you’ll encounter are either built into the power outlet itself (Figure 1, left) or inside the circuit breaker at the power panel (Figure 1, right). Both… View this story

    PSW Top 20 presented by Renkus-Heinz   The majority of live shows and events present interconnect challenges. We need to interface our gear with installed house systems, recording or broadcast trucks, A/V companies, rental gear, and even equipment from our own inventory that has different connectors. My company’s inventory, for example, consists of various analog and digital consoles, some of which have 1/4-inch TRS (tip/ring/sleeve) connectors for outputs, while others have XLR connectors and still others are outfitted with some… View this story
