Always remember, though, that you should have a professional electrician sort out any problems that don’t have a simple and straightforward solution. 39 This page intentionally left blank Chapter 5 Advancing the Show 41 Before a tour has even started, part of your job as an enthusiastic audio engineer is to advance the shows, which means that you create documents of your band’s technical specifications (or “tech specs”) and then send them over to your tour or production managers so they can send them to the venues and/or promoters, along with any other documents they need.

The light bulb has two terminals on either side. One is connected to the negative terminal on a power supply, and the other side is connected to the positive terminal on the power supply. This means that the circuit is complete Live Audio. © 2011 Dave Swallow. Published by Elsevier Inc.

If you’re running from a 100-watt, 4-ohm amp into a 4-ohm speaker, the impedance on the speaker and cable would be 6 ohms, giving you only 50 watts of power. Here is another example: A 2-ohm cable passing 2 amperes of current loses 8 watts of power. Thick (low-gauge) speaker cables have less resistance than thin cables of the same length. So use thick cables (at least 12 gauge) to avoid losing power in the cables. The higher the resistance of a speaker cable, the more power you lose through that cable, by the equation Power 5 current 2 squared 3 resistance (P 5 I2 3 R) With this in mind, you should understand that it’s always important to make sure you have the same length and thickness of cable on both sides of a system.
