    Hello Old Soundman! Helloo, Shawn! I am a bassist joining a new band where everyone uses in-ear monitors. Have I ever heard of the band? What genre are they in? Don’t answer those questions! I own a high quality DI/preamp that I have been using on most of my shows for three years now, and in previous in-ear situations with it, I’ve been perfectly happy with no stage volume. The reasons I was asking those other questions was to determine… View this post

    amplifier loudspeaker
    Brian Oppegaard 08/16/12 04:32 PM,
    Power amplifiers have been changing at a fairly rapid pace. Switching power supplies have reduced weight and offered added protection from line voltage variations. Class-D topology has cut the size of power supplies and heatsinks. Amplifiers are also shedding their conventional rack-mount chassis and taking up residence in loudspeaker cabinets. In light of these developments, it’s time to take a new look at the amplifier-loudspeaker relationship. We begin with the usual questions:  How many watts will that loudspeaker handle, and… View this post

This situation resulted in inconsistent sound quality, creating a most frustrating experience for both the announcers and the fans alike. Recognizing the need for a better solution, stadium management recently elected to deploy a more permanent solution consisting of D.A.S. Audio… View this post
