0672226723 574 pages. Index. "This book is for those individuals charged with implementing an audio system for which preliminary engineering has been completed. The task at hand, then, is one of executing this basic design with detailed drawings and installation procedures in a way which will minimize systems problems. In this way the book complements most other audio books which focus on systems and equipment layout and configuration. A world of detail and knowledge is needed to turn a rough design into an optimized, functional system, and this book addresses many of the issues associated with building systems." - from Preface.
