Leading Ceiling Speaker Manufacturers License EASE Address Software
Tannoy, QSC, Bouyer, Bosch, Electro-Voice, Dynacord and SoundTube Entertainment have licensed EASE Address software from Ahnert Feistel Media Group (AFMG) for the design and optimization of ceiling speaker installations and other distributed systems.
“We are happy that these leading brands have adopted EASE Address as their primary tool for designing ceiling systems,” says Stefan Feistel of AFMG. “We have spent many programming hours making EASE Address the most accurate, fastest and easiest to use program for both system designers and R&D engineers. Our GLL data format makes it easy to add new loudspeakers and update existing products without writing a single line of code.”

Also, EASE Address v1.1 will be released this January. The free software update includes:
- Support for transformer settings for constant voltage networks
- Optimization function for SPL variation
- EASE data import and export
