In episode 38, the hosts are joined by Merlijn van Veen, a noted audio educator, particularly on the subjects of system optimization, array theory, and subwoofers. Currently the senior technical support and educational specialist at Meyer Sound, Merlijn talks about system engineers and how it’s not just about getting the mix right, but also about delivering the same show to everyone.
The discussion also touches on sound pressure levels (SPL), still a highly misunderstood concept in pro audio circles. Both the hosts and Merlijn have been doing a lot of research on SPL of late, so the conversation offered a great opportunity to dig further into the topic. And it wouldn’t be a complete discussion with Merlijn if the subject of subwoofers weren’t addressed!
