In this episode of Sound Design Live I talk with the director of system optimization at Meyer Sound and the author of Sound Systems: Design and Optimization, Bob McCarthy, about how to decide where to place your delay towers and how many boxes they should have.
- Movie: WW1 doc They Shall Not Grow Old
- Roskilde Festival
- Sub arrays: End-fire, Gradient inverted stack
- MAPP XT
- Design files for Jockey Plaza
- Do I have enough boxes in my delay towers?
- Compare the ratio of boxes in your Main array vs your Delay array to the ratio of distances they are covering.
- One of the big lessons of this experience was how important it was to not just extend 100Hz and above, but to extend the whole show. If you want it to stay impactful, you have to bring it down to 30Hz.
- If you’re in an outdoor environment, I prefer over covered to under covered.
