System Design & Optimization (SDO) – 3 Days*

25. - 27. September

10:00 - 18:00

This course explores the relationship between the predictive perspective of the MAPP 3D Sound System Design and Prediction Tool and actual sound system performance as measured with FFT‑based transfer‑function analyzers. The instructor will generate and compare data using both tools, in order to help users better understand the correlation between the two. Upon completion of the course, attendees will possess a clearer idea of how sound systems behave in both modelled and real space, and with it, a more informed approach to accurately designing and optimizing systems using Meyer Sound solutions.

SDO is eligible for 18 AVIXA CTS, CTS-D, CTS-I RU.

Low Frequency Control (LFC) – 1 Day*

28. September

10:00 - 18:00

Fusing classroom theory with practical exercises, this one-day course addresses a range of considerations when working with the Meyer Sound LFC subwoofer product line. Topics include verification procedures, cardioid and array configurations, effective cancellation techniques, main-to-LF scaling and alignment, and approaches to combining different subwoofer configurations within a single system.

This course is offered in select instances, as a supplement to Portable System Deployment and System Design & Optimization. Attendees should complete either course prior to taking Low Frequency Control, the content of which is intended for experienced audio technicians.

LFC is eligible for 6.5 AVIXA CTS, CTS-D, CTS-I RU.

*Trainings will be presented in English with French interpretation by José Gaudin. The registration fee includes training materials, AVIXA CTS RU, and catering.
