Save time in the field by presetting your speaker output delay and level offsets. Here’s a model from a recent show where I estimated the level and delay for a pair of relay speakers and line of front-fils. If you know the difference in distance between two sources, you can accurately estimate their time offset, […]
When you’re setting up a digital console under pressure, keep it simple!
Hypothesis: By choosing a lower crossover frequency I can expand the coupling zone between main and sub. Conclusion: While lowering the crossover frequency does expand the coupling zone between main and sub and this fact may influence the system design, its advantages are secondary to the efficient functionality and cooperation of both drivers. Coupling zone: […]
There is nothing worse than spending an entire event struggling with feedback demons. You may have been taught to fight feedback with a graphic EQ, but there is a better way. Actually, that’s not true: there are six better ways. Use my guide to controlling feedback onstage and mix in fear no more. “The feedback […]
Key Takeaways Verify crossover slopes by: Comparing them to a measurement of your DSP. Comparing them to my pre-measured templates. Calculating bandwidth. I have often heard the advice: Avoid doubling up your crossover filters. Most modern speakers come pre-baked with high/low-pass filters. If we insert an additional filter in our output EQ near these native […]
