Between the Lines

Between the Lines is a book about tuning sound systems for live events, but more importantly, it's a book about making decisions. Beginning with an overview of system design fundamentals, the author then shares his personal approach to sound system design and alignment, and his rationale - not only why decisions are made, but also the order in which they are made, which can have a profound effect on the resulting uniformity of the system.

Readers will learn to consider the outcomes and tradeoffs throughout the process, and the author's school of thought yields a mental framework for creating consistency, regardless of the size, scope, or scale of the sound system.
