    Tectonic Audio Labs and design/install firm Definitive Audio collaborated to solve perennial audio problems for St. Louise Parish, a large Catholic Church in the Pacific Northwest (Woodinville, WA). “The existing loudspeaker solution was primarily based on three 2-way, 15-inch trapezoidal boxes in a center cluster,” explains Dennis Schlossberg of Definitive Audio. “In order to fully cover this large and wide space, three separate systems were previously employed in total—the main center cluster and two independent fill systems mounted on pillars… View this post

The source of the music for this dancing would have been called a “jookbox.” A second version is that “jook” meant “sex” which may have made sense since brothels were some of the first establishments to install… View this post

    Justin Pommer is no stranger to the recording studio. After starting out as a drummer close to 20 years ago, Pommer began engineering in what he calls “mini-studios,” and over the past two decades in commercial facilities and various studios of his own, he learned his way around the mixing board, honing his sound and craft and ultimately moving into producing. Over those years, Pommer has recorded numerous artists that range from Tower Of Power to Tom Petty, and he… View this post

    church sound
    Jon Baumgartner 10/01/14 12:49 PM,
    On more than one occasion, I’ve been called to a church to inspect the facility for the purpose of designing a new sound system. Upon arrival, I discover that the church has perfectly adequate audio components that have been tuned and balanced perfectly inadequately. It never fails—when I inform the owner that the system is fine and simply needs to be properly tuned, I get the response that the church has just paid somebody several hundred dollars to tune the… View this post

    For too many years, football fans and supporters of Roswell Independent Schools in Roswell, New Mexico suffered the poor performance of small paging horns that squawked announcements no one could understand and that emitted music no one could feel. When money finally became available to make improvements, the school hired local firm J&G Electric to oversee the project. Relatively new to the pro audio market, Mike McClain of J&G Electric made a thorough search of possible options that would resolve… View this post
