    SynAudCon has announced that registration for the three-day Sound Reinforcement for Technicians (SRT) seminar, held in the Chicago metropolitan area October 5-7, is now open. SRT utilizes a multi-media presentation that will instruct attendees on how to understand the audio signal chain, establish the proper gain structure, maximize the signal-to-noise ratio, and equalize the system. During SRT, the measurement of voltage, impedance, polarity, SPL and STIPA will be demonstrated. More importantly, attendees will learn what these measurements mean and how… View this story

    SynAudCon is offering “Audio Applications – System Optimization & Equalization,” a web-based training course designed to help audio professionals optimize their sound reinforcement systems to their fullest potential. “Audio Applications” addresses challenging topics such as acoustics, amplifier and loudspeaker power ratings, the amplifier-loudspeaker interface, gain structure, and EQ. It starts by explaining the theory behind the concepts, and then uses those theories to establish practices. Specifically, the course—prepared and presented by SynAudCon’s Pat Brown—will help in setting the gain structure… View this story

    line arrays
    Pat Brown 08/04/15 06:48 AM,
      Your multi-box line array looks great. You’ve seen them on TV, but now you’re standing in front of a real one, expecting the best sonic experience of your life. You play a favorite music track, but something doesn’t sound right. You check the DSP settings, and then the aiming. All looks good, but it still doesn’t sound right. Now what? The multi-box line array is a system of full-range loudspeakers, arranged to allow variable vertical coverage control via the… View this story

    SynAudCon has announced three seminars that will be presented in Asia. The Singapore (August 20-21) and Bangkok (August 24-26) seminars will cover sound system design principles. OptEQ will be presented in Shenzhen on August 31 – September 1. The sound system design seminars will present a logical, intuitive, and comprehensive system design approach beginning with analysis of a room’s acoustics. From this information, the attendees will learn how to select and place loudspeakers to achieve speech intelligibility and music clarity.… View this story

    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. At the… View this story

    power amplifiers
    Pat Brown 06/08/15 04:11 PM,
      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
