Installation Product workshop - Nailsworth, UK: details


Knowledge of d&b systems is advantageous but not essential. Participants should be familiar with electroacoustics concepts and principles. Experience with Windows and/or Apple operating systems is also necessary.

The goal

Participants are familiarized with the basics of acoustics, loudspeaker characteristics and design. The xA-Series, xS-Series and xC-Series are introduced, as are the d&b installation amplifiers, both in theory and with listening sessions.



The day starts with an informal introduction to the seminar presenters and fellow attendees.

System reality

Having covered the inner workings of acoustics and loudspeakers in general, we will take a closer look at the d&b “system” approach to loudspeaker design, amplification and processing electronics.

Loudspeaker design principles

This takes a brief look at some acoustical principles, so everyone understands how loudspeakers behave. It’s followed by familiarizing the group with some basic principles of loudspeaker design and the influence they have on directivity and frequency response. There’s no complicated maths and physics; participants experience a variety of phenomena through a number of acoustic experiments.

Introduction to the xS-Series, xA-Series, and xC-Series loudspeakers including subwoofers

A look at the features and intended applications of these loudspeakers; their strengths and differences with specific like for like comparisons including listening sessions.

Introduction to the installation specific integration features

An overview on how to integrate d&b systems with 3rd party control systems, as well as an introduction to input monitoring, load monitoring and override features.

Overview of amplifier GPIO functionality

An introduction to the d&b installation amplifiers general purpose input and output capability.


The content is conveyed in a format that uses practical examples and encourages participants to exchange experiences and play an active role.
