Line array theory & Audio theory books!!!! Where and which ones?
Posted 28 September 2010 - 09:30 PM
So I understand the basic principles of line array theory, however I want to do some serious reading on the theory behind line arrays, cardioid sub arrays, delays, etc etc. Generally the theory behind the big PA rigs in live events. I have read all of Dave Rats blogs but I just want a paper copy to study.
Is there any particular books that I should get, or avoid hehe. Im not afraid of hardcore research.

Each manufacturer usually has a technical or white paper on how they have 'solved' the issues of line arrays - and how their approach is better than any competitor!
There are some good papers in the AES archive (at cost) or you can buy this book:
Bob McCarthy's book

And hunt the library for the post-war edition of this:
(I found a 1954 copy in a university library once)
