    Nicknamed “Death Valley,” Tiger Stadium on the campus of Louisiana State University (LSU) in Baton Rouge is renowned for the deafening roar produced by 92,500-plus fans on Saturdays in support of the school’s powerhouse football team. The noise is notorious for scrambling the communications and sapping the confidence of Tigers opponents, and indeed, the NCAA ranked Tiger Stadium as the loudest stadium in college football, noting as an example that fans’ euphoric response to a last-minute LSU touchdown in 1988… View this post

    Most sound practitioners know that low-frequency wavelengths are much longer than high-frequency wavelengths. But because we can’t see them, to what level do we really understand them? This is an important subject because understanding the nature of wavelengths can aid in optimally setting up and operating the various types of sound systems that most of us come in contact with. Let’s look at the physical differential between low frequencies and high frequencies. They are quite radical, in the sense that… View this post

    As with many types of cable, you can save some money by purchasing Ethernet cable and connectors and assembling/terminating them yourself. Of course, keep in mind that putting together cables of any type requires time, patience and some know-how. Without these essential ingredients, you’ll be much better served by buying pre-terminated cables. That said, let’s get started. First, to attach any Ethernet RJ-45 connector ends to the lengths of cable, you’ll need an RJ-45 crimping tool. Start with a good… View this post

The new system was supplied and installed by Copenhagen-based PRIME A/S. “People come to enjoy a beer or a glass of wine in the afternoon, meaning that the audio system only needs to provide low-key reinforcement during daytime hours,” says Lars Christensen, venue owner. “At night, appearances by live bands and DJs call for something altogether more powerful.… View this post
