    Why are there so many different kinds of loudspeaker drivers and types? Working for a loudspeaker manufacturer over the years I’ve heard many people say, “What’s the best speaker you make?” Or, “I’d like your best I5-inch loudspeaker,” etc. The truth of the matter is the “best” speaker depends on your application. 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! As well as people all over who work for caterers, Top-40 bands, laser companies, gardening services, and of course, the… View this post

    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. But when there is basic stuff happening like constant feedback, the monitors turned up louder than the mains, EQ that has taken the vocals out of the mix, and so on, I feel compelled to help, and also to spare the ears of those in the audience. When I go to the sound booth, I… View this post
