Fundamentals of Sound Engineering

We invite you to join us for an informative and educational day covering the basics of sound engineering on Wednesday, May 2, 2018.

As sound and vibration become more important topics, it is important to have a strong understanding of the basics.

This seminar can help you answer questions like:

  • What’s the difference between sound power, sound intensity, and sound pressure? When do I measure these different parameters?
  • How can I locate and identify sound sources quickly?
  • When I make ‘quieter’ products why do some people say they sound worse than the previous generation ‘noisier’ products?
  • What role do simulation and test play in sound engineering?

This seminar is designed for anyone who wants to learn how to address acoustic and vibration issues.

Live demonstrations will be given throughout to help reinforce the topics.

In this free seminar, both simulation and test methods for better acoustic engineering will be presented in an interactive, side-by-side format.
