    constant voltage

    This article is provided by Rane Corporation. Constant-voltage is the common name given to a general practice begun in the late 1920s and early 1930s (becoming a U.S. standard in 1949) governing the interface between power amplifiers and loudspeakers used in distributed sound systems. Installations employing ceiling-mounted loudspeakers, such as offices, restaurants and schools are examples of distributed sound systems. Other examples include installations requiring long cable runs, such as stadiums, factories and convention centers. The need to do it… View this post

    Last month millions turned out in London, England, to mark Queen Elizabeth’s 60 years on the throne. Not since Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee 1897, has Great Britain celebrated a monarch’s 60th anniversary. Needless to say an event of this magnitude required a reliable and flexible networking transport, and Audinate’s award winning Dante technology was chosen as the digital media network backbone for all the live sound events and festivities.  Audio production house Britannia Row Productions was responsible for all the… View this post

    You never know what you’ll come across at a yard sale – a few months ago, I found this little beauty, a Kent DM-17 microphone. Kent was a brand established by Buegeleisen & Jacobson musical instrument distributors, which was based in New York City in the early 1960s. It was known primarily as a guitar brand, with some of the early guitars made by Guyatone and Hagstrom. In addition to guitars and basses, the Kent name was on amplifiers, guitar… View this post

    Founded in the late 1890s, Calvary Baptist Church in Salt Lake City has long been noted for its high-energy gospel services. The sanctuary’s 1990s-era sound reinforcement system lacked the power and clarity needed to maximize the impact of Calvary’s gospel musicians and vocalists, with Audio Video Electronics of Maple Grove, MN recently providing an upgrade headed by Danley Sound Labs loudspeakers and subwoofers. Not long ago, AVE performed an installation at Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church in St. Paul, MN, and… View this post
