    Middle Atlantic Products is introducing the new HRF Series Half Rack family of products that will also serve to help develop an ECIA standard for the half-width rack format. The new HRF Series half racks–which incorporate the dimensions of the proposed standard–feature a low profile design and compact dimensions. An offset cable tie area keeps their overall width to a slim 10 5/8-inch, which makes them an important off-the-shelf solution for maximizing the amount of usable rack space in confined… View this post

    In the early 1990s we were the kings of grunge, based in Seattle. We were the capital of music at the time, and we had a ton of wedges. Literally, a ton or more, as our company had over 100 of them. A few hours down the road in Oregon, we heard tales of a well established rock band using custom-fitted “headphones” that went inside the ear, like a hearing aid. At the time I remember saying, “that’s the dumbest… View this post

    The Rose Theatre in Brampton, Ontario, is a confident combination of glass and brick that boldly reflects the city’s pride. When it opened in 2006, the theatre came equipped with a brand new loudspeaker system but, as technical coordinator Trevor Nash explains, all was not rosy in the garden. “Plans on paper don’t always successfully translate into real world situations,” Nash says. “There were coverage issues in several areas of the auditorium. Although adding ground stacked subwoofers and 2-way cabinets… View this post

    The Danish arm of KPMG, a worldwide accounting and consulting firm, makes a bold statement through its new 33,000-square-meter headquarters building in Copenhagen designed by architects 3XN. As part of the building architecture characterized by three interlocking polygons, KPMG’s auditorium features a virtually invisible system of Meyer Sound MM-4XP miniature self-powered loudspeakers to ensure intelligibility for company presentations. “It was a challenging room because the architects did not want any loudspeakers visible, not even color-matched ceiling grilles,” states Anders Jørgensen… View this post

    Atomic Professional Audio’s growth has always been fueled by their habit of expanding the services they offer, and their inventory, in anticipation of the evolving needs of their clients. That ethic comes from the top down, from co-founder Kevin Margolin. And it isn’t terribly different to the way he sizes up potential gigs with a critical eye ahead of time, in an effort to make sure every show run as smoothly as possible. “When I look at a site –… View this post
