Master Class M4
M4 - Bob Hodas
Wrangling the Room
Acoustician and studio musician Bob Hodas has traveled the world tuning over a thousand rooms from Tokyo for Sony Entertainment, to London for Abby Road, and Stateside for Blackbird and Lucasfilm. The focus of the master class will be the loudspeaker/room interface and optimizing system performance. A slide presentation will demonstrate the frequency and phase response of loudspeakers placed properly and improperly in a room. Integrating subwoofers with the main speaker system for both stereo and surround systems will be covered, as will be equalization and what types of acoustic treatments to use and how to determine their proper placement.
