System Design and Optimization Training Overview

This two-day course explores the relationship between the predictive perspective of the MAPP XT System Design Tool and actual sound system performance with the SIM 3 Audio Analyzer. The instructor will generate and compare data using both tools to help users better understand the correlation between the two.

Upon completion of the course, participants will have a clearer idea of how sound systems behave in both modelled and real space, and a more informed approach to accurately designing and optimizing systems using Meyer Sound solutions.

This course is eligible for 13 AVIXA Renewal Units for CTS, CTS-D and CTS-I certification levels.

Course modules for system design and optimization include:

Designing with MAPP XT, System Design: LEO Family Aim & Splay, main systems, fill systems, delay systems, relay systems, low frequency control theory and recipes, Galaxy & Compass applications, measurement analyzers, acoustics 101, acoustics 202, system verification with FFT, sub alignment with FFT, system optimization: EQ, delay, level, aim, splay, low-mid beam control, and subjective system voicing

Low-Frequency Control Workshop Overview

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

Course modules for low-frequency control include:

Subwoofer fundamentals, verification, cardioid configurations: In-line gradient, cardioid configurations: In-line End-Fire, cardioid configurations: inverted stack gradient, auto-efficiency, mind the gap, symmetrical arrays vs asymmetrical arrays, horizontal arrays, Meyer Sound LFC Settings, VLFC, main-to-LF configurations, power scaling: main-to-LF ratios, main-to-LF alignment, subwoofer combinations, Delay Subwoofers
