College of St. Benedict Raises The Ceiling On Audio Performance

EASE Address

“EASE Address is fast and easy. The initial budget takes half an hour. I just import a plan view of the floor into the program as a bitmap image, enter an average value for ceiling height, then lay speakers on top. As the number or type of speakers is changed, EASE Address displays direct SPL for seated or standing listeners.”

The article "New Heights" published in the October issue of System Contractor News introduced EASE Address as an intuitive and accurate tool for the planning of ceiling loudspeaker systems. Find the online article here.
