Sound System Engineering – Don Davis – 1st Edition


A guide in the day-to-day work of designing systems. It examines a step-by-step method of accurately predicting such variables as acoustic gain, speech intelligibility, and required electrical input while plans are still on the drawing board. It gives an history of audio, and details of audio , and acoustic instrumentation.

Sound , is a practical and useful addition to the audio library. It succesfully addresses the audience intended by the authors, and is a worthy successor to the prior editions. This is a treasure trove of about the and implementation of sound systems, and can be strongly recommended to those readers, who having the requisite practical and/or academic background, are seeking to enlarge their understanding of a particular aspect of the subject…Personally, I expect that Sound System will become an invaluable . The authors and editors are to be commended for the clarity of the presentation and the production of a text that is relatively from error.
