    John Horrell, president of Durrell Sports, recently installed FBT loudspeakers in the school auditorium for Music City’s Ensworth School. With a student body that includes children of Nashville’s resident musicians, high-quality sound is consistently needed to support school shows as well as the many performances given by parents – professional musicians who enjoy the opportunity to raise money for the school. “Because of Ensworth’s notoriety in Nashville, many musicians in the area seek out the school for their kids,” said… View this post

    EDITOR’S NOTE: This fine article was featured in the March 2004 issue of Live Sound International. We reprint it here in celebration of our 25th anniversary. How many sound systems are in use? Many millions, for sure, and they’re found in all types of venues and for all kinds of programs. So one would think we’d know exactly how to do it by now. But there seems to be plenty of examples to prove that we don’t. Why should this… View this post

    Flatirons Church, located in Boulder, Colorado, recently invested in new Eastern Acoustic Works (EAW) Redline loudspeakers to accommodate the growing needs of their church. They required a solution for the times when attendance to the church exceeds seating in the sanctuary – often by as many as 1,000 worshippers. By deploying Redline in the lobby, everyone in attendance has the same worship experience. It also provides them with a system to use for outside events, which are a common occurrence… View this post

    When I was getting stated in this business, I had some excellent mentors along the way.

While organizing the U.S. Air Force Band Sound Workshop (an annual event for military sound engineers) during the 1990s, I passed along this information to the budding audio people, many of whom were musicians transitioning to sound for a variety of… View this post
