Sound Systems: Design and Optimization from Focal Press Sound Systems: Design and Optimization is an exhaustive compendium about sound reinforcement alignment and design. Master designer Bob McCarthy shares his expert knowledge in a clear and easy-to-read style greatly enhanced by many illustrations, color diagrams, screenshots and a few cartoons throughout.

The book has three sections: Sound Systems--a description of what they are, how they work, and how they can be most effective; Design--the whole process of evaluation, prediction and specifying a system; and Optimization--the verification of a system's performance and application.

You'll learn in this intellectually challenging book about how sound is spread over a listening area, the physics of speaker interaction, alignment methods including mic placement, equalization, speaker placement and acoustic treatment. This second edition includes case studies and real world examples of the principals discussed.

Quite an addition to my library and this book is a "must have" for anybody who works in audio and sound. It sells for $69.95 and is from Focal Press, a division of Elsevier.
