Sound System Engineering – Don Davis – 1st Edition


A guide in the day-to-day work of designing sound systems. It examines a step-by-step method of accurately predicting such variables as acoustic gain, speech intelligibility, and required electrical input power while plans are still on the drawing board. It gives an history of audio, and details of audio mathematics, and acoustic instrumentation.

Sound System Engineering, is a practical and useful addition to the audio engineering library. It succesfully addresses the audience intended by the authors, and is a worthy successor to the prior editions. This book is a treasure trove of knowledge about the design and implementation of sound systems, and can be strongly recommended to those readers, who having the requisite practical and/or academic background, are seeking to enlarge their understanding of a particular aspect of the subject…Personally, I expect that Sound System Engineering will become an invaluable resource. The authors and editors are to be commended for the clarity of the presentation and the production of a text that is relatively free from error.
