Course Description

Instruction covers key principles of distributed audio including sound technology, source components, distribution equipment, speakers and control options. Students learn about line level and speaker level signals and wiring, component and speaker selection, impedance and amplifier/speaker performance calculations. Multi-room music system design steps, installation procedures and troubleshooting techniques are also discussed in detail.

Informative text, detailed color diagrams, and engaging case studies make learning distributed audio efficient and enjoyable. Special In Depth articles provide deeper background and technical information on critical topics, and Project Management Tips coach installers on good management practices. An online Glossary provides ready access to definitions of key terms.

The course is divided into 11 training modules – each module ends with a quiz, and a comprehensive test at the end of the course allows students to demonstrate their newfound knowledge of whole house audio systems.

After completion of this course, students are prepared for hands on, product specific training in a training center or on a job site.


Students should be familiar with the operation of a basic stereo system and have basic knowledge of structured wiring (see the Fundamentals of Structured Wiring Online Course for more information).
