    line arrays
    PSW Staff 09/30/12 09:25 AM,
    In this Real World Gear installment, we look at compact line arrays, which we’ve defined as those with 8-inch (and smaller) LF drivers.

For dynamic full-range music presentation, compact arrays are usually accompanied by at least one subwoofer. In addition, the vast majority of full-range models… View this post

    While sound system operators have come to enjoy the considerable benefits of digital signal processing, it’s important to understand how these devices truly interact with loudspeakers. There’s a lot of cause and effect that sometimes gets overlooked, resulting in less than optimum performance, and leaving the operator scratching his head as to what’s going wrong. One particularly important aspect that is often overlooked is using a DSP to drive loudspeakers with a manufacturer’s prescribed settings (or other target drive function).… View this post

Over its nearly forty years of service, the Wells Fargo Arena has had several sound reinforcement systems, all of which lacked power and were unintelligible to one degree or another. Recently that changed when the school raised funds for a whirlwind renovation project that resulted… View this post
