    BASSMAXX has found a home in Treehouse…the immensely popular South Beach techno venue where low end and a high intensity crowd are married in a euphoria of music and dance. BASSMAXX provided and installed six self-powered double 18-inch subwoofers and four self-powered double 12-inch bass horn cabinets, complete with on-site system tuning and optimization, into the subsequently crowned Miami NewTimes “Best Small Music Venue – 2012”. “These days, DJs’ demands on equipment are consistently surpassing the status quo of just… View this post

The earliest audio myth I can recall is the benefit of fancy wire for connecting loudspeakers, and it’s still going strong. Some vendors… View this post

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   Here’s a list I love from Steve Guttenberg, the audio reporter over on the CNET blog. It’s the top 10 reasons why music is compressed today. As you’ll see, there are a lot of things in the list that make sense. With all the talk about hypercompression (over-compression), we tend to forget that people really do like the sound of compression. It’s just when it’s used to excess that engineers and listeners… View this post

    This article is provided by Behind The Mixer.   I couldn’t believe my eyes!  The sound check was over and the sound guy had all the volume faders set at zero and all the EQ pots set at the noon position.  Listening to the music during the service, it was obvious there was no depth to the mix. That was probably 20 years ago, but the memory has stuck with me. Mix depth is the mix arrangement of sounds in… View this post
