In this workshop we’ll cover the fundamentals of what sound is and why it matters to you. You’ll learn how the physics of sound apply to using your gear more effectively, and how to buy gear smarter. You’ll also learn how to properly measure decibels, how many are enough and how to comply with noise ordinances. DJs are often confused as to how and why a powered speaker could fail, and in plain language you’ll learn how to keep yours running reliably. This is an essential primer to the 201 course and a must for all DJs.
