Audio Room Mapping
One of the services that sets us apart from the usual AV companies is our extensive experience in the live sound arena. These are challenging surroundings often requiring not only a deep understanding of a huge range of high tech tools but also the ability to think outside the box and interpret what is required on a bespoke basis.
Having spent over 25 years on tour around the world with many top selling artists our experience in setting up huge multi zone audio systems is second to none.
Having your expensive TV’s, amp’s and speaker systems installed onto and into your boat should not be the end of the process.
Its important to understand that every aspect of a room affects its sound. Speaker placement is often less than ideal audio wise on a boat, but once they are placed, windows,
soft furnishings, floor coverings and the like all play a role in how we hear the sound they are trying to reproduce.
The images left are examples of measurements made for optimal room acoustics / seating position, the freq response measurement in graphical form,& the calibration microphone used to take the measurements .
By implementing room mapping we measure the effect all of the above factors will have on audio. Numerous measurements are taken around a room using specially calibrated microphones and sophisticated software. The sound system, once installed (and the room furnished) should be optimised. This not only involves EQ of the speakers, but also time correlation, phase alignment and impulse correction. The smallest correction of any one (or all) of these parameters presents a huge difference in the end result.
And it’s not just about a computer churning out a set of figures. Using our accumulated knowledge to achieve the correct interpretation of the data is paramount. We take pride in vastly improving what typically results in an average audio experience.
Most importantly we recognize each client will have individual tastes and preferences. We are eager to take into account each clients personal needs. Settings will always be tweaked post install as part of our service to allow for individual preferences.
