    Some would say we’re taken for granted. Others might say we’re misunderstood. Still others occasionally say “thank you.” Who are we? Your humble servants, equipment service technicians – or “service techs” for short. Is it true that we stick pins in power amp dolls while dancing naked under the full moon with bones through our noses in order to get your gear repaired to working order? Or how about the rumor that we collect large bags of cash for a… View this post

    From its origins as a single wine store, San Francisco’s PlumpJack Group has grown into a multi-faceted hospitality and lifestyle business.

PlumpJack wanted something better than what major US nightclubs were delivering, selecting loudspeakers from Alcons Audio. PlumpJack Group’s business now includes wineries, luxury resorts, restaurants and clubs, as well as retail outlets. Established in a former printing… View this post

    First opened in 2004, the 4th Street Live! complex is Louisville, Kentucky’s downtown entertainment and dining district. The unique design transformed a two-block area into an open-air mall style entertainment destination. A large A-frame glass roof encloses the area from the elements, with a live performance stage situated on the street. The facilities recently saw a need to upgrade the aging 12 year old sound system. With the expansion of their event programming to include more national artists, 4th Street… View this post

    Equalizers, by their nature and name, are supposed to redress imbalances in a sound system. Unfortunately, equalizers, whether graphic, parametric, or shelving in nature, are only as good as the person using them. Knowing where to turn the knob or push the fader is usually a dark science, but there is a light at the end of the tunnel. The first step in proper EQ technique is to realize the knobs go to the left better than they go to… View this post
