Significant misinformation still persists about what is needed for AC power, and proper grounding, for events — much of it potentially life-threatening advice. Two of the leading authorities on the subject will discuss in detail how to provide AC power properly and safely and without causing noise problems. The session will cover theory and practice of AC power for small to large sound systems, from a couple boxes on sticks up to multiple stages in ballrooms, road houses, and event centers; large scale installed systems, including multiple transformers and company switches, service types, generator sets, 1ph, 3ph, 240/120 208/120.
