    To accomplish anything in life, we, as humanly creatures, must utilize an assortment of resources to accomplish any given task. For example, going to a store to purchase something involves brain time in making the decision to venture out, “wear and tear” on our vehicle, and the depletion of our finances – all are expenditures of resources. Even something as simple as watching TV, in which our visual and auditory perceptions are held captive or distracted, can be viewed from… View this post

Yes, these are the days that turn sound company owner and manager thoughts to Alternative Revenue Sources (ARS). The contracting/install market is generally one of first potential ARS markets that come to mind. There’s that club downtown that wants to stop renting and buy a system.

    This article is provided by Behind The Mixer.   A sound tech from Washington writes regarding finding the right house volume levels, “It’s either too loud for the elderly or too soft for the youth, or too much electric or not enough bass, it’s just impossible to please everyone.” My grandmother’s cooking immediately comes to mind. My grandmother was a good cook. I’m not talking “Paula Dean with butter in everything” or “Bobby Flay with everything jazzed up.“ I’m talking… View this post

    line arrays
    PSW Staff 09/07/11 02:35 PM, 0 Comments
