Anyone can tweak and twiddle to get a sound system up and running. But, is it optimized? Is it operating at its fullest potential?

Why guess when you can have solid answers to the following questions.

✅ Is my system noise floor as low as it can be?

✅ Do I have the right amplifier for my loudspeaker?

✅ What is the maximum SPL my system can safely produce?

✅ Am I losing signal in my loudspeaker cables?

The answers to these and many other system questions are unique for each sound system. Course 200 – Signal Chain Optimization presents principles and procedures that will allow you to reason your way through the system setup and calibration. You can have confidence that your system is at its best, and you can know how to find the weak links when it is not.
