I have developed, what seems to be, a lesser known method to find target coverage angle and quickly estimate average splay for a line array in the field in relatively few steps. I discovered it by necessity while creating Pro Audio Workshop: Seeing Sound 3 years ago. Recently a student challenged me on a couple of points and it motivated me to take a closer look to see if I could make it more efficient. Here's how I have seen other people do it. Bottom speaker down angle - Top speaker … [Read more...]

Do ground stacked subwoofers really give you 6dB for free?
Any measurements made at ground plane will always be 6dB louder, despite subwoofer distance.Flown subwoofers give you 6dB for free just like ground stacked as long as a maximum height is respected. I have always thought that ground-stacked subs would produce 6dB more SPL because they are coupling with the ground. You've probably heard people say things like: "Having subs next to a boundary gets you 6dB of additional sensitivity""The ground is like a mirror, doubling sub energy. " I … [Read more...]
