This course is designed to facilitate audio system engineers with the understanding of how sound systems are designed, verified, analyzed and optimized for the intended application in a venue. There will be a great deal of theory towards designing sound systems with the main objective of providing a uniform response over the audience area.
There will be hands-on applications and attention will be place on the causes of the regular issues encountered and the possible solutions.
This is strictly a technical course over five days of intensive focus on how to get the most practical benefit from these tools.
- Learn to understand and comprehend the various impulse, frequency response, phase and magnitude traces, what can we do about it and how to do it.
- How to design and optimize sound systems.
- Settings for delay, levels, equalization, speaker positioning including techniques for acoustical treatment, alignment of cross overs and loudspeakers
- Verification, troubleshooting and testing practices for electronics and loudspeakers for distortion, polarity, dynamic range and more
Minimum requirements (1 and 2 is a must):
A firm understanding of the fundamentals (phase, time, frequency, decibels, etc) of audio engineering or any other audio related technical training, courses or seminars will also be beneficial
A minimum professional working experience of 3-5 years as a system technician or engineer, with references in sound system design and installation/set-ups in a variety of venues.
Certificate/Diploma/Degree in electrical, electronics, acoustic, physics, broadcast, media technology, audio production or any combination thereof, will be an added advantage.
