What is covered in Home Cinema Audio Calibration School with HAA Levels II and III Certification?
Day One In-Person: Level II Integrator Certification
This session focuses on advanced design and calibration and is evenly split between classroom education and hands-on workshop activities. This portion of the program leverages the design principles introduced in part one and expands them with more technical explanations and examples. It discusses acoustical principles to create a deeper understanding of design standards aiming to prepare the learner with better problem-solving skills. During this part of the program, learners will experience the HAA TurboCal process which has been specifically designed to support an efficient and practical audio calibration process; we will calibrate a live system during the workshop. Training high points include learning how to use an FFT and RTA analyzer, how to be a pro listener, calibration documentation, advanced sub-woofer calibration, speaker and seating placement, and designing a practical acoustical treatment strategy.
Days Two and Three In-Person: Level III Advanced Integrator Certification
This is an all hands-on session designed to bring all the prerequisite training to the test. The workshop session pulls all the information and techniques from the previous program elements into a fantastic review and cements the concepts for the most complete understanding. The learner is tasked to incrementally design and calibrate a high-performance system. The HAA PowerCal process will be used to produce a system that will meet the highest performance metrics. Additionally, several eye-opening instructor-led learning sessions will be conducted with the live audio system. You’ll understand subwoofer placement, room modal analysis, speaker/seating placement and acoustical treatment design from both a theoretical and experiential point of view. This class will forever alter your perspective on audio and reveal new opportunities in building high performance systems.
