The Gain of a Sound System

Document Thumbnail

A simple equation for system gain before feedback is derived for a sound system in a room. The equation is sufficiently accurate for purposes of engineering design. The use of system equalization in achieving the calculated system gain is described. A procedure for experimental checking of the system gain of a completed sound system is outlined.
