    Harman’s Crown Audio announces it has adopted the Common Amplifier Format (CAF) for DriveCore Install (DCi) Series Amplifiers. Developed by SynAudCon, the CAF is a report for presenting specifications and measured performance metrics of audio power amplifiers. Effective July 2015, Crown DCi Series amplifier specifications will be available in the CAF. CAF was designed to provide amplifier performance metrics in a concise and well-defined format and in a manner that facilitates direct comparisons between various manufacturers and models.

      This article is partly technical, and partly philosophical. It’s about power, and has to do with how consumers use power ratings to buy products. It is not necessarily limited to audio, even though that is where it ends up. There are two primary uses for power ratings: 1) To describe the rate of work performed by (or energy consumed by) a product, and 2) Because of the previous item, to determine whether or not a product can perform a… View this story

    Registration is open for the upcoming SynAudCon three-day Sound Reinforcement for Technicians (SRT) seminar to be held June 13-15 in conjunction with the InfoComm 2015 show in Orlando this coming June. SRT instructor Pat Brown provides a multimedia presentation, covering the theory behind how systems work, and he also demonstrates how to use instrumentation to look “under the hood” to troubleshoot systems. On day three, system tuning is presented in a technical yet practical way. In addition, the seminar will… View this story

    More than 80 audio professionals recently converged on Shenzhen, China to attend a three-day SynAudCon Sound System Design seminar. The session was hosted by EZPro International, a distributor for Community Professional, EAW, Mackie, Symetrix and other leading brands, who’s vice president, Tao Zhang, had previously lived in the U.;S., working with Community Professional. During that time he also attended several SynAudCon seminars, experiences that motivated him to bring that high level of audio education to China. “Audio education is difficult… View this story

    As the name implies, “OptEQ” is an optimized sound system tuning process developed by SynAudCon (Synergetic Audio Concepts), and it was presented to an audience of more than 100 consultants, contractors and end users over the course of two days in early January at the American Airlines Training Center in Ft. Worth. I was fortunate to be one of those attendees. As usual, the workshop was brilliantly prepared, hosted, and presented. Pat and Brenda Brown of SynAudCon are simply the… View this story

    Registration is open for the upcoming SynAudCon three-day Sound System Design in-person training course, to be held March 9-11, 2015 in Atlanta. In the course, instructor Pat Brown presents a logical, intuitive, comprehensive approach to system design. It begins with analysis of the room’s acoustics, then using this information to select and place loudspeakers based on the necessary directivity for achieving acceptable speech intelligibility and music clarity from the complete system. The course also demonstrates the modern tools of sound… View this story

      As I was preparing for our recent OptEQ workshop in Dallas, a few things crystallized for me, the most fundamental being “what is equalization?” If you ask 10 audio practitioners this simple question, you’re likely to get 10 different answers. In the most literal sense, equalization means to “make equal.” But make what equal? Here are some thoughts for consideration. Literal Definition In the strictest use of the term, equalization applies to the correction of minimum phase aberrations in… View this story

      Adequate signal-to-noise ratio is one of the characteristics of a professionally designed sound reinforcement system. The terms “dynamic range” and “signal-to-noise ratio” are often used interchangeably, but a closer look reveals that they are not exactly the same thing. The dynamic range of a sound system is the difference in level between the highest signal peak that can be reproduced by the system (or device in the system) and the amplitude of the highest spectral component of the noise… View this story
