Lighting that spark of innovation

In almost anything you do, you learn by doing. Challenge sparks innovation; problems spark solutions. And in the contracting field, sound reinforcement is certainly one area where learning requires doing. All the "book learning" in the world is no substitute for experience. With each new challenge you find insights and tricks of the trade that apply not just to this job and not just to this type of job, but to the job of sound reinforcement in any venue.
That is why this issue is one of the most eagerly anticipated issues of the year. We pre-sent you with a range of diverse projects: stadiums, churches, business offices, convention centers, river boats, outdoor spectacles and even a touch of show business. By showing you what others are doing and how their innovations solved their problems, we hope to provide you information you can apply to your own challenges.
At the very least, you might pick up some trade secrets from the best of the best in contracting, consulting and installation. At best, maybe these stories will spark your spirit of innovation. Sometimes solving the unsolvable requires nothing more than the ability to say "What would happen if I tried this?"We hope this collection of insights from others in the field gives you some new ideas to try with your own design dilemmas.
