Like the utility company, sound system designers sometimes need to drive lots of loads from a single source, and drive them over very long distances. Both of these obstacles can be overcome with a transformer-distributed loudspeaker system.
If you understand how these systems work, you can effectively design and troubleshoot them. You will learn how transformers are used for signal distribution, including how they affect the applied voltage and current, and how they reflect the connected impedance.
This course will answer questions like:
✅ How many loudspeakers can I connect to an amplifier?
✅ What size amplifier do I need?
✅ What are “power taps” and how loud will they make the sound?
✅ What gauge of wire is adequate?
✅ How many loudspeakers does it take to cover a room?
The last lesson includes scenarios that will walk you through some distributed system design scenarios. We use EASE Address for some design scenarios. A tutorial is included.

Course materials for you to keep include: the video transcriptions, reference manual, and SynAudCon IntelliKwik Software Program.
SynAudCon training is set up similar to college courses. The lower level courses lay the foundational principles for the upper level courses. Course 50 – How Sound Systems Work and Course 100 – Principles of Audio are the suggested perquisites for this course. Taking the self-evaluation quizzes will help you determine if you need to take those courses first.
