Audio System Design

Torrence Sound Equipment Co. was the first audio systems design and contractor in Northwest Ohio to use acoustic modeling software to design audio systems including installing concert quality loudspeakers with our purchase of AcoutaCADD in 1989.The interior of the hall in the theater Since we have continued to invest in software and tools that when combined with our decades of experience, not only designing audio systems but installing and supporting them for years afterward, we can offer our customers the highest quality performance with the least financial investment. Each audio system or video system we design draws upon over the more than ten thousand systems that we have already installed. Today the engineering staff at Torrence uses EASE software suite (Enhanced Acoustic Simulator for Engineers) to validate our audio system design process. EASE and EASERA provides our audio system designers with an invaluable set of tools for all aspects of professional practice for distributed sound systems and systems using components of traditional spherical directivity such as high Q horn clusters, and two-way and three-way pre-engineered loudspeakers. Third party and manufacturer specific calculators are used for cylindrical radiating systems like concert Line Array Loudspeaker System and Steerable Bass Arrays.
Another design tool we use at Torrence for acoustic and loudspeaker system design is the Bose Modeler. This sophisticated, predictive analysis program also provides Torrence audio system designers with tools to determine the preferred configuration and location of loudspeakers in a room. Bose Modeler software enables audio system engineers to create an accurate acoustical model of a facility, and to develop a design that reduces unwanted echoes, excessive reverberation, and acoustic hot and cold spots.
With the Bose Modeler software program, a number of loudspeakers can be visually placed in an architecturally accurate room model of any size or shape. The speakers can be aimed, moved, turned on or off, and amplified, with set time delay values. Modeler software can be used for existing structures, or with architectural drawings of planned structures. One of the significant advantages of using the Bose Modeler is the compliment of Bose Auditioner. Auditioner audio system design technology makes it possible to actually hear and judge for yourself the precise sound you’ll have in a building. You can even do it before a single piece of audio equipment is installed!
