Lemke, Executive Director and CEO, InfoComm International. “Long after their retirement, the Syn-Aud-Con sessions at InfoComm are among the most anticipated by attendees and each day people are able to hear clearly in rooms across the world because of Don and Carolyn Davis.”

Don and Carolyn Davis have dedicated their lives to improving sound quality through education. In 1951, the husband-wife team began their quest selling high fidelity equipment in Lafayette, Indiana. Years later they founded Synergetic Audio Concepts, known as SynAudCon, in response to the growing need for training in the fundamentals of sound reinforcement. Their work in equalization, speech intelligibility and recording technologies provided the backbone for developing training seminars and workshops.

Over the course of their careers, Don and Carolyn Davis have been responsible for the education of more than 10,000 sound contractors and designers.  Authors of numerous books, Sound System Engineering remains an industry standard.

“We were delighted to see Don and Carolyn recognized for their work educating the audio industry,” said Brenda Brown, current SynAudCon owner. “Their efforts resulted in the development of thousands of dedicated audio professionals. Every day we work in their footsteps to continue to expand educational opportunities for audio professionals.”
