Considering whether point source loudspeakers might be right for the toolbox as well as the particular needs of certain applications.

Chapter 2 of 4 in the new Biamp Expert Series on Loudspeakers, entitled “Crossing The Line: Don’t Overlook Point Source Approaches,” is now available for free download (below).

It wasn’t too many years ago that most shows were supported with trapezoidal point-source loudspeakers that were either horn loaded or front loaded.

There were numerous touring companies providing proprietary loudspeaker systems, some well engineered and some not so well. Rigging was often an afterthought, and many systems were ground stacked. Companies sprang up that did nothing but design and build aftermarket flying hardware to support both proprietary and manufacturer loudspeakers.

The Expert Series on Loudspeakers is presented by Biamp and features top authors from ProSoundWeb and Live Sound International magazine.
