    The main effect of damping in a loudspeaker is to reduce the SPL produced by the loudspeaker’s diaphragm moving because of its own inertia after the signal stops. The frequency of the sound it produces with this movement will be at the resonant frequency of the moving system. A common term for this is “overhang”. In severe cases this can translate into “one note bass”. Types Of Loudspeaker Damping There are two types of loudspeaker damping: mechanical and electrical. The… View this post

So in an effort to help, I’ve whittled down a concentrated list of the top technical concepts I think everyone in our business should have under their collective thumbs. Of course there are many more important ideas and concepts that… View this post

    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   Not too long ago, in a church not that far away, the battle had begun. It started off innocently enough. The bass player and drummer had to share a monitor because there were not enough to go around (budget constraints, you know). The first request was for a little more bass in the monitors. That was followed by a request for more kick and snare, then a little more bass. Now the drummer… View this post

    St Joseph Parish has been a part of the Needham, MA community for more than 100 years. Beginning with a humble wooden church in 1894 and expanding its campus over the years to include a convent, elementary and middle schools, and a range of ministries. In 1966, having outgrown its existing sanctuary, the church completed construction of their current building. Though there have always been sonic challenges, the space has served them well for more than four decades. The room’s… View this post
