    The Fachhochschule (technical college or University of Applied Sciences in English) in Münster, Germany has installed KLA Series fixed arcuate active line arrays loudspeaker system to deliver sound reinforcement at Audimax Hall, one of the school’s largest largest lecture theatres. Located in the nearby town of Steinfurt, Audimax Hall, with a capacity of 200, has pitched rows of seating, rising towards the back of the chamber in classic lecture theatre fashion. It presents an acoustic challenge to any PA system,… View this post

    array prediction
    Bruce Main 04/11/12 04:47 PM,
    Back in the good old days predicting the performance of a group of loudspeakers was a hit and miss proposition. We tried to hit all the people and miss the walls. We were happy if we had enough devices to point a transducer everywhere that needed coverage and enough power to make it good and loud. Complex interactions between devices operating in the same bandwidth, fine level adjustments for individual devices and precise flying angles were the least of our… View this post

    Following its launch at the recent Prolight + Sound 2012 in Frankfurt, VUE Audiotechnik has announced a development partnership with Materion Electrofusion, the world-leading supplier of beryllium and other advanced materials for high-end acoustic applications. VUE Audiotechnik and Materion are currently developing a family of compression drivers based around Materion’s Truextent acoustic beryllium. Extremely stiff and lightweight, beryllium offers a unique combination of properties that dramatically reduce mechanical deformation (breakup), shifting the resonant frequencies inherent in more conventional materials outside… View this post

    d.a.s. audio
    Paul Watson 04/09/12 03:10 PM,
    The D.A.S. Audio journey began more than 40 years ago, when a new enterprise named “Dynamic and Sound” was created by Juan Alberola in Valencia, Spain in 1971. Alberola, with a serious passion for audio, began designing and manufacturing his own loudspeakers and components, initially for studio monitoring and home listening, and all built in-house. Just a few years later, that focus also included producing larger loudspeakers for Spain’s thriving dance club, fueled by the country’s reputation as a European… View this post

    When Yes Events Ltd purchased a major RCF Theatre & Touring (TT+) system nine months ago they were determined to standardize on RCF components from that point forward. Their recent purchase of eight-enclosure TTL33-A compact, 3-way active line array system and two additional TTS28-A subwoofers was a good start on that commitment. In addition, they have invested in six TT25-SMA touring 15in stage monitors and RCF’s proprietary RDNet system software, to integrate with the TTL33-A. According to Yes Events director,… View this post

    Since its founding in 1963, the Boston Ballet has become one of the leading dance companies in the world, and in 2009, moved to its new performance home, the historic Boston Opera House, located in the heart of the city’s theatre district. Now, the ballet is also benefitting from a new sound reinforcement system tailored to support its specific performance requirements. Initially constructed as a tribute to vaudeville impresario Benjamin Franklin Keith and named the B.F Keith Theater, the 2,766-seat… View this post

    When Opera Australia’s artistic director Lyndon Terracini announced that the staging of an open-air opera on Sydney Harbor, there was much skepticism from opera buffs who anticipated a production disaster. The event presented significant technical and logistical challenges—in particular the sound quality of an operatic performance that utilized radio microphones and amplification. However, this open-air production of Verdi’s La Traviata has opened to much acclaim by critics and while Brian Thomson’s open, sloping, diamond-shaped stage with its scene-stealing 9m x… View this post

    At Bicentennial Park near Silao, Mexico, an open-air Mass celebrated by Pope Benedict the XVI gathered a sizable crowd that the Associated Press estimated to reach 350,000 people. To ensure everybody could hear words and music clearly and to full effect, more than 375 Meyer Sound loudspeakers converged at the site—including 268 MILO line array loudspeakers, likely the most ever deployed for any single event. The daunting challenge of audio system design was shouldered by Rodrigo López of Mexico City-based… View this post
