Sound System Engineering provides an accurate, complete and concise working tool for all those involved in audio engineering. This fully updated third edition runs the gamut of sound system design from the simplest all-analog paging system to the largest multipurpose digital systems. Written by two leading authorities in the field of audio engineering, this highly respected guide covers the fundamentals necessary for the understanding of today's systems as well as for those systems yet to come. Topics covered include: * Mathematics for Audio Systems * Using the Decibel * Interfacing Electrical and Acoustical Systems * Loudspeaker Directivity and Coverage * The Acoustic Environment * Large Room Acoustics * Small Room Acoustics * Designing for Acoustic Gain * Designing for Speech Intelligibility * Microphones * Loudspeakers and Loudspeaker Arrays * Signal Delay and Signal Synchronization * Signal Processing * Sound System Equalization * Putting It All Together Packed with revised material, numerous illustrations and useful appendices, this comprehensive text is a necessary addition to any audio engineering library.
