This course will answer these questions and more.
Course 130 – Equalization
Course 210 – Advanced Equalization
The last lesson in this course “connects the dots” between all of the concepts presented by walking through some case studies.
The principles are universal and apply to all loudspeakers, DSPs, and measurement platforms.
This question often comes up, “Should I take both courses?” The answer is “no”. Course 210 – Advanced Equalization has Course 130: Equalization content with additional lectures. Looking the detailed course outline will help you with your decision.

The course is for experienced audio practitioners. We recommend a skill level consistent with graduates of our Course 50, Course 100, and Course 120.

Pat Brown is a 1978 graduate of the University of Louisville with a degree in electrical engineering technology. With a background as a musician, sound technician, retail music store owner, contractor, and consultant, he is familiar with the many aspects of audio. He served as an associate instructor to audio legend and SynAudCon founder, Don Davis. Pat along with his wife Brenda own and operate SynAudCon and have been providing training for the audio industry since 1996. Pat, the main instructor for SynAudCon, has the unique gift of being able to share his knowledge of complex technical topics in an easy-to-understand real world manner through multi-media demonstrations. SynAudCon is recognized as an industry leader in audio education.
SynAudCon offers both in-person and online audio training. There are regularly scheduled in-person seminars and special one-time events on audio-related topics. With the release of the online training in 2010, SynAudCon training is now more accessible worldwide.
Pat writes articles for several publications. He authored three chapters for Glen Ballou’s “Handbook for Sound Engineers”and is co-author of Sound System Engineering 4th Edition. He considers SynAudCon online audio training courses as his most complete “book”, being able to explain the concepts and principles with animations and demonstrations.
He was chosen as NSCA “Educator of the Year” in 2005 and NSCA “Mover and Shaker” Award in 2011. He received Great Britain “Peter Barnett” Award in 2012.
SynAudCon has given private seminars to many companies and organizations, including the Kennedy Space Center, Disney World, Sea World, IMAX, Purdue University, the US military, Siemens and many audio manufacturers. He has conducted seminars in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, China, Thailand, Philippines, Singapore, South America, Australia and Canada.
Pat and Brenda Brown founded a second business in 2005 – Pro Sound Testing, Inc. Pro Sound Testing measures loudspeakers to produce data files for use in room acoustics modeling programs. Pro Sound Testing was the first company of its kind in the USA. The experience of developing a measurement facility and measuring hundreds of loudspeakers from dozens of manufacturers has allowed him to develop some methodologies and specifications that have influenced a number of industry standards.

Well structured, easy to understand. J.E.
The information was clear and concise. I think not being in a lab type environment misses out on the immediate hands-on nature of this topic. R.H.
Yes I agree with this. I hope you can spend a day on a job site to implement these principles It’s doing it so you can see and hear the “cause and effect” that brings it to life. Brenda Brown
Lots of great information, thoroughly and plainly explained. Though it was said to be software-agnostic, it does seem to lean heavily on FIR Capture (which does seem like a pretty useful software, admittedly). K.E.
And thank you to Pat for such a great course. We will definitely be putting some of our Field Applications Engineers through Course 210 but more likely Course 130. While I’ve enjoyed in person SynAudCon classes in the past this allowed me to do things at my own pace which was helpful to go back, and re-watch/re-read. L.F.
I loved the content in this course. There is math and physics that I haven’t considered since college. That being said, the question about ‘Which time window will have the best low frequency resolution’ was a real thinker, and I wound up guessing on the second time around the exam. L.F.
For me everything is perfect, just positive comments. M.L.
LOTS of good information in this course. It is just a lot to take in. Z.W.
