    Two wannabe smart guys/ engineers on Fri, 09 Oct 2009 ,called Jim




    If you know so much ... Why not give an answer... Its probably beacuse
    you're both too incompetent to give an intelligent answer.
    I've seen some people giving it a try without any real certainty but
    I'm sure you believe everybody is stupid except you ... just shut your
    mouths.
    If you don't have anything to do with your life ... I'm sorry for you
    man as I am for Jim Thompson whose posts are useless..
    Run run guys ... before i catch you.

    OK I understand your reasoning ... but sorry I don't have as much time
    as you people do to give explanations ... There is more fun in life
    then debating on these issues ... .
    But did it ever cross your mind that it is a need of the client? Did
    it ever cross your minds that the Industry where these things are
    going to be placed have conformity issues that only the above
    mentioned Loudspeakers satisfy ... and a whole lot of other reasons
    accompany my decision.

    Ok, you are an idiot. Believe it or not, I HAVE (and do!) designed PA
    systems for a living, as well as do electronic and embedded design. I
    even answered your question. You must just be a stupid troll, with
    nothing better to do than waste people's time.

    It must be a small church then. Usually some digital delays are used
    to feed speakers further away so the sound from the front speakers is
    in phase with the half-way speakers.

    Ok, so you post a dumb question that you seemingly don't understand,
    don't tell us half of the requirements, act like a little baby when we
    ask for more info and cry that we don't understand, don't listen when
    we DO answer your wrong question, and it is all our fault. You're a
    democrat, aren't you???? ;-)

    I'm a troll because I ask a question.?
    That sounds very stupid , doesn't it Charlie.
    You can't even understand what I ask and you claim you can design a PA
    system?
    The instinctive reaction was to laugh one's head of but a careful
    consideration of your words as well as those of the other answers on
    this thread ... convey the message that you suffer from some
    deficiency, or is it something physical? Which is all very sad.
    As I said before my deepest pity for you and the company.

    Compared to European cathedrals it is small, holds about 300 people max
    plus maybe another 50 or so in the overflow area (narthex). But in
    contrast to European ones it fills up twice every Sunday and that's what
    really counts :)

    Our Yamaha mixer does have a DSP with delay features in there but that
    part of the mixer has died many years ago, along with the VU meters.

    The requirements had nothing to do with the technical aspects. My
    answer was atechnical one.
    To illustrate ...
    A man gets a fracture ... and calls his doctor and asks ... Doc what
    should I do if I have a broken leg ... and the Doctor says don't be
    stupid enough to break your leg.
    Now what would you call the doctor? Dumb as hell.
    You put yourself in the situation of the Doctor.

    No, you are the guy who calls the doctor from the roof of the building
    and asks "What should I do if I break my leg?" I am the doctor that
    says "Don't jump off the building, take the stairs or get a ladder."

    Oh, then you probably haven't served in the army :)

    Our drill sergeant could easily reach 90% when he was in the mood. And
    he usually was.


    Nowadays you can even buy switchers for ham radio gear and that ought to
    be the most RF-noise sensitive group there ever was. It's no problem.
    And if it turns out to be one there's ferrite and capacitors.

    I am currently testing a 70kHz several amp coil driver design. About 3ft
    from it the old Astor AM radio plays nice tunes.

    You post under the name of Andrew Edge yet you sign as Martin. Surely, if you
    really worked at MSW Systems http://mswsystems.com/home.htm you would have your
    own email address there. Incidentally, there is nothing on the MSW website that
    lists one of their services as "Public Address System Design". The stated main
    areas of services are "Systems & Networking, Web Design and Business
    Apllications" which says that they are merely engaged in IT design and support.
    This is a far cry from the engineering requirement required for a valid company
    experienced in PA system design. Of course, they could simply have failed to
    enter this function in their services lsting....

    I will be querying management at MSW as to your bonafides...

    It is plainly obvious to anyone who is experienced in electronics that you are
    not an electronics or PA engineer or anything like it. You say "you don't have
    as much time (as those of us who may be competent in the field) to give
    explanations", and that "there is more fun in life than debating on these
    issues".

    These two statements give you away as a fraudster and would NEVER be used by
    someone engaged in the PA design field. In fact, they are statements more likely
    to come from an uneducated juvenile out to cause trouble. Anyone who was
    seriously involved with the design of PA systems, as you claim to be, would have
    at the very least, a knowledge of electronics building blocks and how to select
    the appropriate items for the project at hand. You plainly don't possess this
    knowledge otherwise you would be pleased to describe in complex detail the
    environment you have to work with and the specific problems which this
    environment might present in coming to the best solution. That is the real
    reason why you can't be bothered to provide explanations.

    There are myriad problems in designing a PA system and there is no person on
    this earth who can supply you with the answers without ALL of the specification
    and details. It is a specialised field which does not really fit in with "IT
    Consulting".

    Not only that, but email to MSW Systems bounces. And Google street view for
    12506 Maverick Court, Tampa shows up as a residence in a rural suburb in the
    sticks. Hardly the sort of address one would aspire to for an IT consultancy
    with the claims made in the website below. Smells very fishy to me....

    THe church my wife went to in VT had five services, three of them in a
    500 seat theater down the street (with open concessions stand). They
    pretty much filled them all. Amazing.

    And here I thought Slowman was the asshole of Europe.

    And then we have Washington DC wanting us to be Europe, and may yet
    pull it off.

    Debating issues is one of the most important things a designer does.
    It helps to avoid re-inventing the wheel by sharing knowledge and
    insights.
    Perhaps. But in some cases a potential client wants a solution that is
    prone to problems. Try asking them how many companies they turned down
    because those companies didn't want to supply the solution the client
    *thinks* is best for them.
    100V speakers come in many shapes and sizes. It is impossible a 100V
    system cannot meet any conformance requirement either related to
    safety, enviroment or esthetics.

    For example this is a speaker that may be used in hazardous
    environments:
    http://www.alibaba.com/product-free/10803877/Explosion_proof_Loudspeaker.html

    This is the webshop from the manufacturer:
    http://www.lautsprecher-onlineshop.de

    It is in German, just click around a bit to see what they have.
    Perhaps they have a distributor or give them a call. A lot of Germans
    know how to speak English these days.

  19. You then say to the doctor "Of course, I am a very experienced doctor
    myself; but I didn't tell you anything about the way my leg was broken,
    so you don't know that there are complications".

    Now what does the doctor think of you?

    So you could have a cold one during the sermon?

    :)

    Yeah, Northern Europe and some other areas are rather depressing
    compared to the US in that respect. However, let's not kid ourselves,
    attendance percentage at Christian churches in the US may be 10 times
    better than in Europe but it is slowly sagging.

    You guys should have Baptist chruches where you live now. The choirs in
    many of those are phenomenal, makes you wonder whether the rafters will
    hold.
