      A letter to a church building committee might read: Thank you again for the opportunity to provide you with a proposal for the sound system for your house of worship. While we appreciate your interest in “good stewardship” in the funding of this project, and understand your request for “church pricing” for the work, the following points should be kept in mind when determining the best value for the dollars spent. #1 - Dynamic Range Church sanctuaries are usually… View this story

    An interesting development has occurred in recent times: folks have become much more aware that the acoustic space plays a critical role with respect to the final sound of the room. In other words, unless you “fix the room,” changing the sound system may in fact not solve the problem at all. And truth be known, bringing the room acoustics up to an “acceptable level” is often actually easier than setting up a PA system!  Testing One, Two, Clap Go… View this story

    Market of Choice is a regional grocery chain offering with nine locations in Oregon. Their stores emphasize high-quality background music to create a pleasant atmosphere for shoppers with clear, intelligible voice paging for customer service. Pro Sound and Video of Eugene, OR designed and installed the audio system for the newest Market of Choice location in Beaverton, OR. Pro Sound’s Anthony March says the stores are well-designed and attractive but different areas have different ceiling heights and ambient noise can… View this story

    The Hotel Roanoke & Convention Center is a complex that includes business and entertainment facilities. Originally built in 1882 and renovated many times since, the hotel includes multiple meeting spaces and a ballroom, but until recently these areas didn’t always enjoy the desired level of audio processing and distribution flexibility. With a desire to improve sound quality, the hotel appointed audio installation firm IES Communications to devise a system able to network every area in every possible configuration seamlessly –… View this story

    You may remember learning about Haiku in grade school. Basically it’s a short form of Japanese poetry usually written in three phrases of 5, 7 and 5 syllables. There are some other “rules,” but you really don’t want a return to grade school, right? Recently toward the end of yet another fine day in the publishing world, Craig Leerman and I started goofing around with Haiku applied to pro audio. We ended up laughing a lot and decided to add… View this story

    There’s so much hating going on nowadays! We even see it among over-the-hill yuppie sound guys who have heard songs by a certain band played too many times to check sound systems nationwide. But I’m not going to pile on the crowd of haters! Not even when I receive notes like this one from Tim. No! The OSM is on the love trip! Dear OSM: When you’re preparing for a rock gig at your club, what tunes do you like… View this story

    This article is provided by Commercial Integrator   It’s a truism that almost nothing is 100 percent efficient; a measure of the inefficiency of most devices we deal with is how much heat they produce. Heat is energy that has been lost for one reason or another and is not available to do the task at hand, whether that is moving our car along the road, moving a loudspeaker’s cone to produce sound, or moving large quantities of 1’s and… View this story

    I’ve been in the pro audio business for 20 years, but I never set out to be a sound system provider. But in 2008, after eight years working at a large university’s theatre complex, well, as Bob Dylan said, “one day the ax just fell.” I called all of my old friends but couldn’t find a decent gig anywhere. So I ended up mixing acoustic acts for next to nothing in a local bar and grill. This little bar had… View this story
