Manifold Drivers – How Much Additional SPL is Realized.

Two drivers can be manifolded onto a single horn to achieve increased acoustic output. But "how much "is not as straightforward as one might think.

Polarity 101 – Some subtleties regarding device polarity

Since most sound reinforcement equipment uses bipolar power supplies (allowing the audio signal to swing positive and negative about a “zero” reference point), it is possible for signals to become inverted in polarity (flipped over).

Understanding Horn Directivity Control

Pattern control is essential in sound reinforcement systems. The beamwidth of a horn is determined by some key size/wavelength relationships. Charlie provides a short history and an overview of the math.
