McCauley Sound Expands System Design Group Program
Contractors Benefit From Factory Design Services To Win Loudspeaker Installations.
Puyallup, Washington, March 8, 2004 — McCauley Sound, Inc. has expanded their System Design Group services. Responding to overwhelming success measured in the first year of the program, McCauley Sound, Inc. intends to double the resources and personnel allocated to this group for 2004.
The System Design Group (SDG) is a free factory design and support service which leverages McCauley Sound’s in-house engineering expertise for the benefit of McCauley’s contractor and consultant partners. The goal of the SDG is to provide a factory-approved loudspeaker system design to our contractor partners for any installation which they believe could benefit from a McCauley loudspeaker solution. By making McCauley Sound’s extensive engineering resources and expertise available to the contractor during the design phase of an installation, a contractor has the advantage of bringing a highly developed and sophisticated loudspeaker design to the bargaining table when proposing a solution to their customers and clients… without the additional expense of specialized staff, equipment, training or software.
Since forming in 2003, the SDG has created high-output foreground loudspeaker designs for over a hundred installations, including houses of worship, nightclubs, sports arenas, auditoriums, theaters and more. A testament to the program’s value, nearly 74% of installations designed and proposed through the SDG program have been accepted by the venue, and installed through the partner contractor
The SDG’s design process is highly streamlined and requires little effort from the contractor. Working off simple paper drawings, CAD files, or architectural blueprints, the System Design Group’s CAD team models a realistic three dimensional representation of the proposed installation. Once completely realized in a 3D model, the SDG imports this venue geometry into an EASE 4.1’s acoustic simulation, and based on the predictions EASE software provides, develops and refines a complete loudspeaker solution for the proposed installation. After the SDG meets and agrees that the proposed loudspeaker system has been optimized to meet all the design, performance and budget goals for the installation, the SDG assembles all the project information into a final presentation package, complete with full-color images detailing the performance, power and coverage of the proposed solution. Finalized, and delivered to our partner contractor, these materials become a valuable tool in his sale presentation to the client.
This free service provides McCauley Sound’s design and build partners with an invisible ally in the modeling, design and specification process. The entire process takes as little as three business days.
