    This article is provided by Rane Corporation.   Constant-voltage is the common name given to a general practice begun in the late 1920s and early 1930s (becoming a U.S. standard in 1949) governing the interface between power amplifiers and loudspeakers used in distributed sound systems. Installations employing ceiling-mounted loudspeakers, such as offices, restaurants and schools are examples of distributed sound systems. Other examples include installations requiring long cable runs, such as stadiums, factories and convention centers. The need to do… View this post

    Located in northwestern Tennessee, Bethel University is a small Christian institution of higher education. In recent years, its student body has swelled to nearly 5,000 students, and with that increase has come new interest in its many athletic programs. The Bethel University Wildcat football team plays at Wildcat Stadium, which now manages the larger crowds with an upgraded system built around Ashly Audio. The stadium sound reinforcement system, installed by Lowrance Sound Company (Union City, Tennessee) nearly a decade ago,… View this post

    As with the ever-ongoing debates about “tubes versus transistors,” “analog versus digital” and “Mac versus PC,” there’s not likely to be agreement any time soon about “objective versus subjective” when it comes to sound quality. Extremists in the “Objectivist” camp argue that, “if it can’t be measured, it doesn’t exist” while on the other hand, the “Subjectivist” side firmly backs the idea that “human beings can hear things that can’t be measured.” How often has it been suggested, “use your… View this post

    Provided by the No Shock Zone.   Most musicians really don’t want to learn about electrical engineering, or even how basic electricity works. Everyone, however, should learn how to test for and avoid electric shocks on stage. Guitar amps and mixing boards as wired from the factory are inherently safe, but they can become silent-but-deadly killers if plugged into an extension cord or wall outlet that’s improperly grounded. This is because guitars are held in moist hands while wet lips… View this post

    CBC’s Studio 42 at Maison Radio-Canada in Montréal is to Canadian television what a room like Studio 8H in Rockefeller Center is to US broadcasting history. First opened 42 years ago, the flagship studio has been used for countless awards ceremonies, talk shows, concerts and other live-event programs over its four-plus decades. Earlier this year, “Le Studio,” as it’s known to millions of Canadians, underwent a significant technical upgrade, including a new sound systems for Studio 42’s audience seating, and… View this post
