Introduction Sound system design, and more specifically, loudspeaker systems design, is an interesting mixture of art and science. Some system characteristics follow predictable mathematical relationships, indicating an analytical approach by the designer. Others are subjective, and are more a matter of opinion than a matter of scientific fact. The would-be system designer must differentiate between the two, and arrive at a compromise that maintains the most important attributes of both. Here are some things to think about when selecting a sound reinforcement system for your auditorium.
