It is now time to put a sound system together in order to fill a space with sound. We will need to move beyond the simplicity of speaker order and define speaker coverage with more precision so that we can shape the sound to the contours of the room. The sound system will be a carefully constructed assemblage of parts, each of which has a defined role to play. The definition of such roles will be essential for the on-site deconstruction and reconstruction process that will follow: optimization.
Specification is the culmination of the design process. We have considered the transmission path and the challenges that we are likely to encounter en route. We have learned how the sound system will be perceived by ...
