Effective Sound Masking Requires Proper Loudspeaker Coverage


If you were tasked with installing office lighting, would you save a few bucks by specifying fewer fixtures and thereby creating a workplace environment with annoyingly inconsistent lighting? Probably not. But sound masking system designers sometimes under-specify the number of loudspeakers needed to achieve a uniform masking system. And while it’s true that fewer loudspeakers means a lower cost, it also means poor sound masking performance.

What is a Conferencing Bar?


A conferencing bar (similar to a sound bar) is a type of loudspeaker with a very wide and low enclosure.
