The course is organized by the Department of Science and Methods for Engineering of the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, in cooperation with RCF SpA, a leading international manufacturer of professional sound products and systems.
The primary goal is to provide engineers with a specific knowledge of the state-of-the-art technologies related to sound, transducers and speaker systems and their applications in the professional market. The course is organized in modules taking the participants through a learning process from the basis of electro - acoustic components like transducers, amplifiers and digital processors till the design of a complete audio project based on a real case study. An international reference project carried out by RCF engineers will be used as a studying guideline to be followed during the course.

 

Topics

  • Environmental Acoustics in open air and inner spaces including design and simulation methods.
  • Transducers and speaker systems including clusters, arrays and point source configurations.
  • Electronics including circuit analysis, filters, amplifiers and DSP.
  • Sound systems design including practical experiences in measurements, listening tests and tuning.
