Description

Long considered one of the key books on the well-informed audio engineer's shelf, Sound System Engineering provides an accurate, complete, and concise tool for all those involved in designing, implementing, and testing sound reinforcement systems. This new fourth edition includes eight new chapters leading the reader through both cutting-edge topics-e.g., IBM's proposed thought-controlled sound system-and solid basics, such as loudspeaker specifications, wave equations, and digital audio.

Topics covered include:



Psychoacoustics and how the brain processes sound


Digital theory


Mathematics for audio systems


Using the decibel


Interfacing electrical and acoustical systems


Audio and acoustic measurements


Large room and small room acoustics


Designing for acoustic gain


Designing for speech intelligibility


Wave equations


Microphones


Loudspeakers, loudspeaker arrays, and loudspeaker directivity


Power ratings for amplifiers and loudspeakers


Computer-aided system design


Signal delay, signal synchronization, and signal processing


Sound system equalization

Packed with numerous illustrations and useful appendices, this is a concentrated capsule of industry standards and knowledge that spans the complete range of sound systems, from the simplest all-analog paging systems to the largest multi-purpose digital systems.
