New York (July 9, 2008)--It was Public Enemy that once asked the musical question, "Bass--how low can you go?" Now musicians can find out for themselves with Cerwin-Vega's Understanding Bass Management in PA Systems: A Guide for Performers.
The document provides in-depth detail on bass frequencies and their properties, why subwoofers are important, the types of subwoofers available and their characteristics, the history of bass in PA systems, system configurations for various applications, setting up powered and non-powered subs and full range cabinets, cables and connectors, and setting up crossovers.
"We did a survey and discovered that most people have a lot of questions regarding the proper use and set up of PA systems," states Mike Newman, brand director for Cerwin-Vega. "We wanted to create a series of informative guides to help people get the best sound out of their performances. What better place to start than with bass? It, of course, has been the foundation of our reputation since the company started in 1954."
The bass management user guide is free of charge and can be found at the company's website.
