    At a major racetrack like the Barber Motorsports Park, reliable race-control communications are essential. The 740 acre park, located just east of Birmingham, features a 16-turn, 2.38-mile car and motorcycle racetrack where patrons enjoy Grand-Am, NASCAR, AMA Superbike, and other exciting races. The Indy Grand Prix of Alabama is a major attraction. To ensure clear, properly prioritized communications in an extremely noisy environment, system integrators Data Plus Security of Hueytown, Alabama, installed a customized system based on a Symetrix Prism… View this post

    The National Corvette Museum opened in 1994, just a quarter mile from the famous sports car’s production facility in Bowling Green, Kentucky. It has numerous historical and technological exhibits, but the main draw is an ever-rotating collection of mint Corvettes that span the car’s sixty-plus years in production. The museum also made headlines in 2014 when a sinkhole opened under one of its main showroom floors, swallowing eight cars, but no one was hurt and the damage has since been… View this post

    Communications Design Associates (CDA) recently completed a major upgrade to the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center (BCEC) in Boston, Massachusetts. The BCEC is the largest exhibition center in New England, with over a half million square feet of exhibit space. The CDA team quickly built out the 6,144-channel Audinate Dante network for the BCEC, to route voice and background music across 45 locations – significantly cutting cable and labor costs over the course of the project. CDA has transitioned to… View this post

    Editor’s Note: Follow the links to check out part 1 (loudspeakers) and part 2 (signal processing) of this series. The high-resolution dual-channel audio analyzer is a standard front-of-house tool in the modern sound system. There are quite a few versions available, such as Rational Acoustics Smaart, Meyer Sound SIM, SATlive, AFMG Sys-Tune, Metric Halo Spectrafoo, and more.  These tools are common, quite inexpensive, and offer information that’s fairly easy to understand and act upon. It was only a short time… View this post

    Nestled amid the towering peaks of the front range in Estes Park, Colorado and surrounded on three sides by Rocky Mountain National Park, the YMCA of the Rockies is as beautiful a place to have a conference, reunion, or getaway. The sprawling grounds include nine hundred lodging rooms and nearly sixty meeting rooms, including the six hundred-plus-seat Walter G. Reusch Auditorium. Recently, Sight and Sound Technologies (Colorado Springs, Colorado) replaced the auditorium’s aging sound reinforcement system with new Danley Sound… View this post

    Whether it’s a large festival line array rig or a single loudspeaker on a stick, all audio systems have one thing in common and that’s a need for power. Before starting to design, build, or use any power distribution equipment, the local laws and electric code should be consulted. The place to start is the National Electrical Code (NEC), sponsored by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and published every three years. The purpose of the NEC is to safeguard… View this post

    I’ll bet you have some of these, too: things people say or concepts they have wrong but won’t change, despite considerable evidence. The pro audio market is rife with some of these things. There are good reasons for us to keep doing what we’re doing – if it’s been working. (“If it ain’t broke” and so on.) Nevertheless, if we aren’t continuing to learn, grow and change, we’re stagnating or worse. O.K., let’s start with getting the ones with wireless… View this post

    Rivers Church in Sandton, a suburb of Johannesburg, South Africa, has recently built itself a new home and in so doing doubled its capacity for services. The new church can now accommodate three thousand congregants. Stage Audio Works was brought in to resolve coverage issues with solutions from d&b audiotechnik. “Our pastors André and Wilma Olivier, never wanted it to be two churches, those at the front feeling fully engaged, and those at the back, a little removed. So it’s… View this post
