    The New York City Police Department’s headquarters building in downtown Manhattan is understandably a challenging RF environment. Inside, the 500-plus-seat auditorium is used for all manner of presentations using wireless microphones, as well as video teleconferencing, for applications that can range from officer graduations and assemblies to large-scale counter-terrorism strategy and information exchanges with other police and security agencies around the world. As good as the sound components in the auditorium are, the existing wireless microphone systems had been experiencing… View this post

    When traveling to different time zones, we need to correct our time-keeping tools in order to align our activities to the local standard time. Very simple. Likewise in sound reinforcement systems, we often encounter multiple sources of misalignment, albeit in much smaller time increments. The importance of these misalignments is often subject to debate, but with the advent of a wide variety of very good digital processing products, correcting such anomalies is no longer out of reach for most of… View this post

    The sound is ear-splitting: the howl of race tuned engines vying with each other to strip paint by SPL alone from the concrete walls of the long U-shaped arena at Tierp, purpose-built on an old military airfield in central Sweden. The brainchild of Lief Andréasson, this derelict patch of perfectly level wasteland has been turned into one of the most modern drag racing arenas in the world - with a host of other purposes planned - 2.51km (1.56 miles) of… View this post

    Over the years many have debated the relative merits of “looking at screen traces” on an analyzer versus using human hearing to determine how a loudspeaker, or an entire system, actually performs. While both practices are of course valid, it’s extremely difficult for the human ear to detect, characterize, and correct small deviations in frequency and phase response, and even harder to characterize driver distortion in a meaningful manner. Likewise, the ear is often stymied when attempting to typify transient… View this post
