Learn about David Lee’s journey to becoming a loudspeaker designer who is pushing the bounds of audio technology to achieve the monumental sound of BASSBOSS Loudspeakers.
In these series, I dive deeply into the mechanics and functionality of BASSBOSS systems and go over the basic outlines of what to do, and not do, to deliver great sound to your audience every time, and all the time.
These series are all about making you look smarter and sound better. With this information your system setup will be faster, easier and produce the highest quality result.
At BASSBOSS, we want you to easily operate your loudspeaker without getting stuck on the electrical application. This is why we’ve developed a core education series on power usage for BASSBOSS products. In this series BASSBOSS Designer David will be sharing 3 different, but overlapping, scenarios to consider to ensure you can put on a good show with whatever power is available.
One of the biggest challenges when interpreting loudspeaker specifications can often be knowing what power is required to run your system and whether the venue has sustainable electrical output.
Avoid electrical outages, output issues and disappointing your clients by learning what your system requires and being prepared in advance.
Systems for a 20 Amp Circuit
When first booking a gig, it’s critical to ask key questions about the electrical output at the venue. Most modern event spaces operate on a 20 Amp Circuit but it’s important to confirm to avoid outages.
Once the amp circuit is confirmed – you can better plan how to set up your stage for the performance.
The best way to combat limited electrical availability is to distribute your electronics accordingly.
