The main reasons because there are so many different applications, and no one loudspeaker is capable of fulfilling all the requirements of all applications. And like most things,… View this post

    Dear OSM: I’m wondering if you have had this question before… Probably, but go ahead. … I work for a local company with dreams of going regional/national… You have something in common with many fellow Americans! And foreigners too! … although my employer never seems to get the gigs. See, you have even more in common with many audio servants!

    At live events (church services, weddings, concerts and so on), it’s definitely not my favorite thing to tell sound operators how to fix their mixes.

When I go to the sound booth, I… View this post

    RCF has announced the sale of its first D-Line HDL 20-A active line array system to Leicestershire-based Chameleon Pro Audio & Lighting Ltd in the United Kingdom. Given the vast spectrum of events for which the company provides production support, Stewart Duckworth’s long-standing sales, rental and installation operation sensed the time was right to invest in its own line array system after previously hiring in. As a result, this month they took delivery of an initial 12 HDL 20-A full… View this post
