Cinema Tech Tip: Free Loading

Take advantage of free acoustical power: always place subwoofers on the floor behind the screen – NOT on a platform with the screen loudspeakers. Floor-positioned subwoofers take advantage of “half-space” loading, which increases radiated power by about 3 dB, WITHOUT adding any extra amplifier power. Even better: place the subwoofers on the floor AND push them all the way back against the solid wall behind the screen. That is called “quarter space” loading, and results in about 6 dB greater SPL, without using a larger amplifier. The very low frequencies produced by the subwoofers have no problem going right through any draping or masking below the screen.

Cinema Tech Tip: Looks Can Be Deceiving - VGA vs DataPort

It may look like any old VGA video connector, but it’s not. DCA and ISA Series amplifiers and DCP, DCM, and DXP processors use a special QSC connection interface called DataPort, which enables DSP crossovers, speaker-specific EQ, and monitoring and control of amplifier and loudspeaker functions on a single cable. Although many off-the-shelf VGA cables may work with satisfactory results, the QSC DataPort specification requires that all 15 pin conductors be present and that all audio I/O conductors be shielded. Many VGA cables use only 7 pins. If pins 5 or 10 are tied to ground, damage to amplifier may result. Therefore, only QSC supplied DataPort cables should be used.

Cinema Tech Tip: No Tilt Required

The mid-high frequency section of most 3- and 4-way QSC screen channel loudspeakers has a pre-set downward tilt. When it is properly elevated to approximately 5/8 image height behind the screen and aimed to the last row in a typical stadium-style cinema, there is no need for additional downward tilt. This allows you to minimize the distance from the horn to the screen, and keep it flush within a baffle wall.

The Practical Realities of Immersive Audio

Cinema Tech Tip: What does “Axisymmetric” really mean?

All QSC SR Series surround loudspeakers feature Axisymmetric coverage. That means that sound is distributed evenly on all axes within the loudspeaker’s defined coverage angle. Unlike many conventional loudspeakers, there is no vertical and horizontal coverage pattern, so aiming is made much simpler. Up/down tilt and side-to-side “pan” aiming is all that is needed to cover any area in a cinema.
