"Congratulations to Don Davis and Eugene Patronis, Jr. for writing the most informative book on sound system engineering ever. The book contains all the elements of theory, design and practical installation. The book is an excellent reference for the sound system engineer." - Don Eger
"This book is a treasure trove of knowledge about the design and implementation of sound systems, and can be strongly recommended to those readers, who having the requisite practical and/or academic background, are seeking to enlarge their understanding of a particular aspect of the subject...Personally, I expect that Sound System Engineering will become an invaluable resource...The authors and editors are to be commended for the clarity of the presentation and the production of a text that is relatively free from error" - Henry S. Valk, Professor of Physics at the Georgia Institute of Technology
"Contains a wealth of information on the design, implementation and testing of sound reinforcement systems. Don Davis' section on audio and acoustic measurements is a must read for anyone serious about performing such tasks...Similarly, Eugene Patronis' section on loudspeakers and arrays is not to be missed...
Sound System Engineering, 3rd Edition takes all of the knowledge contained in the 2nd edition and augments it with up-to-date interface methods and advances in the field of audio acoustics since its last publication. This text is equally suited for both the novice and the veteral audio practitioner. It is written in such a manner that each time your read a portion of it, something new will come to light"
- Charlie Hughes, President of Excelsior Audio Design & Services
"Davis and Patronius have a writing and teaching style that has made the subject manageable for those at many levels of "studenting" (which we all are!) and somehow magically speak a language understood by us all. The darned book is even what I would call a "good read". Davis and Dr. Patronius have taken what may be the most complex field in non-quantum physics and made it not only understandable but useful to the day-to-day practitioner as well as the advanced theoretician and academian." - James L. Sorensen, Engineer & Technical Consultant
