Product workshop in 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.
Participants are familiarized with the basics of acoustics, loudspeaker characteristics and design. The E-Series, T- Series, Y-Series and V-series point source products are introduced, as are the d&b mobile amplifiers, both in theory and with listening sessions.
The day starts with an informal introduction to the seminar presenters and fellow attendees.
Having learned about the inner workings of acoustics and loudspeakers in general, a closer look is taken at the d&b approach to loudspeaker design, amplification and processing electronics. Starting with a bit of company history which is followed by an exploration of the System reality to discover why d&b does things the way d&b does them.
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 E-Series, T-Series, Y-Series and V-series point sources
A look at the features and intended applications of these loudspeakers; their strengths and differences with specific like for like comparisons.
Introduction to the subwoofers within E-series, T-series, Y-series and V-series
We will listen to and compare E12X, E15X, B4, B6 subwoofers.
Introduction to the d&b range of stage monitors
A look at the features, configurations and intended applications of M2, M4, Max 2 and M6 floor monitors.
Hands on listening session
Most of the afternoon is dedicated to actually setting up different systems out of the three Series. Everybody can experience how the loudspeakers and amplifiers can be handled and, most importantly, how they sound.
The content is conveyed in a format that uses practical examples and encourages participants to exchange experiences and play an active role.
