With its catalog of both active digital bi- and tri-amped systems and passive home theater speakers, MSE Audio has announced the release of the Theater Sound Designer. This online tool will enable audio designers to design theaters and media rooms with the right speakers to achieve high performance audio for any given size space.
MSE Audio has hundreds of theater options available in on-wall, in-wall, Custom Box, and floor-standing formats. The theater designer provides specific product recommendations to guide the integrator through the product selection.
Theater Sound Designer will go live on the MSE Audio website on Thursday, February 17. It will also debut at DSG Distributors in Plainview, NY, on Thursday, February 17 from 12:00 PM to 4:00 PM and Friday, February 18 from 9:00 AM through 3:00 PM with lunch served. A live complete demo of the Theater Sound Designer will be delivered at 10:00 AM Friday, February 17 via DSG Distribution’s Facebook page and YouTube. Attendees will also see live demos of the SoundTube STNet audio-over-IP system and a new Linear Array DCB410 floor-to-ceiling subwoofer.
“The Theater Sound Designer is our first step in providing more relevant application-based information to our partners,” says Ken Hecht, vice president. “Using the Theater Sound Designer will help our resellers to easily find the right loudspeakers to meet the installation, performance, and budget objectives of their customers.”
Theater Sound Designer features dARTS digital speakers and PhaseTech CI and PC products. It will soon expand to include Induction Dynamics theater options. The theater/media room systems offered include a range of MSE Audio’s many patented and trademarked technologies that includes the dARTS in-room calibration system, the soft dome tweeter, Positive Clamping System that prevents the wall from becoming part of the speaker, Unicel Acoustic Treatment to minimize sound wave interaction with the wall when using in-wall speakers, Absolute Phase crossovers for broad on axis response, patented Bass Extending technology, and patented RPF Flat Piston and glass fiber drivers.
To use the Theater Sound Designer, users answer a short series of questions about the theater space: seating distance from the screen, sound level required, what type of speakers and subs, and the number of surround speakers. By selecting the parameters that meets the project requirement, the theater designer will present the options for the optimal theater loudspeaker/subwoofer audio designs for the project.
Additionally, MSE Audio’s engineering staff stands ready to help with any additional audio design assistance integrators may need — at no charge.
