Overview


This much-anticipated new edition of Sound Field Amplification continues its reign as the only communication sciences book devoted to sound field amplification. Both professionals and students will benefit from the presentation of the theoretical foundations of sound field amplification and its practical applications. Readers will appreciate the straightforward and comprehensive approach to topics such as how children "learn" to hear and how acoustics affects the learning ability of all children. The new edition continues to provide a solid foundation to understanding why the topic of sound field amplification should be included in any discussion of what is needed to ensure success in children's learning. The book also provides the information necessary to conduct sound surveys, obtain funding for amplification systems, and act within the parameters of the laws and regulations governing this topic.
