    power amplifiers
    Jeff Kuells 02/20/13 05:33 PM,
    For years, power amplifiers with multiple channels (generally defined as more than two) were for either multiple headphones in studios or low-power-per-channel commercial applications. But are multichannel amps viable for mainstream professional sound reinforcement? You bet. Times have changed, and once again with regard to equipment, the change is for the better. Units with 3 to 6 channels have actually been around since the early 1980s. However, these either had a rather low power-per-channel rating or were fraught with design… View this post

    Looking for the right microphone to rectify the inadequacies of a previously installed sound system in its conference rooms, the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools (ACICS) in Washington, D.C., contacted local full-service audio-visual equipment supplier and integrator Metropolitan Audio Visual Company (Metro AV). David Wilkins, CTS, Vice President of Metro AV, with the assistance of mid-Atlantic regional rep firm Lienau AV Associates, proposed the ideal solution: a SpectraPulse Ultra Wideband (UWB) Wireless Microphone System from Audio-Technica. “They called… View this post

    Radial Engineering has announced the new StageBug SB-4 Piezo, a direct box specifically developed to solve the problems associated with amplifying acoustic instruments when using piezo-electric transducers. The StageBug SB-4 begins with a 1/4-inch input to connect the instrument’s piezo transducer output.  This 10 meg-ohm input is 10 times higher than a traditional DI. The higher impedance smoothes out the peaks and squawk that is common to most piezo systems while broadening the frequency response for a more natural and… View this post

    Stade Francois Coty, a French football stadium in the Corsican city of Ajaccio, France, has completed audio upgrades compliant to league standards, with seven Technomad advanced audio loudspeakers covering the entire venue. Home club AC Ajaccio recently transitioned to Ligue 2, also known as Division 2 in the LFP French professional football league. The league-imposed audio upgrades required a higher measure of intelligibility and audio coverage throughout the stadium — a quality the previous audio system lacked. Systems integration company… View this post

    What is impedance? Impedance is the AC (alternating current) version of the DC (direct current) term resistance, which is the opposition to electron current flow in a circuit and is expressed in ohms. Impedance (often abbreviated as “Z”) includes capactive reactance and inductive reactance in addition to simple DC resistance. Reactance depends upon the frequency of the signal flowing in the circuit. Capactive reactance increases as frequency decreases: inductive reactance increases as frequency increases. Because of this frequency dependence, impedance… View this post
