This Frequently Asked Questions Wiki has been compiled mainly from the answers to questions posed by members in IPSNET. Thus it draws on the combined experience and knowledge of a broad range of broadcast sound practitioners.
There is information from basic Ohm's Law electronics through to a grounding in acoustics, along with a glossary of abbreviations and acronyms used in broadcasting.
The IPS FAQ Wiki is quite separate from the IPS Audio Compendium, which is more general and historical in character.
