Sound Systems: Design and Optimization – Bob McCarthy – 2nd Edition

In this guide to reinforcement alignment and design, Bob McCarthy shares his expert and effective methodology from years of teaching audio professionals. Written in a clear and easy-to-read style and illustrated with color diagrams and screenshots throughout, McCarthy’s unique guide gives you all the newest to ensure perfect sound reinforcement and fulfill design needs.

Outlining sound is spread over a listening area, looking at the physics of speaker interaction, methods of alignment including mic placement, equalization, speaker placement and acoustic treatment, and now including case studies offering real world examples to fully explore different principals discussed, this book provides the definitive guide to sound reinforcement design and optimization.

The methods of alignment are shown, including measurement mic placement, and step-by-step recipes for equalization, delay setting, level setting, speaker positioning and acoustic treatment. These principles and techniques are applicable to the simplest and most complex systems alike, from the single speaker to the multi-element “line array.”
