Sound reinforcement is the increasing of the power of sound signals and reproducing them as acoustic signals. This book gives an introduction to the fundamentals of sound reinforcement engineering, and also explains how it relates to disciplines such as room acoustics. It discusses in detail the components and layout of sound reinforcement systems and gives examples and case studies of successfully installed systems.
