THX is joining forces with professional Home Theatre training organization Home Acoustics Alliance. THX and HAA will offer three levels of professional training courses for enthusiasts and experienced AV industry professionals. Courses include theory and hands-on workshops on the essentials of home theatre equipment, technologies, and high-performance acoustic design.
Students who successfully pass the exit exam will receive THX and HAA Certification and be listed on websites of both companies.
This 4-day package includes Integrator and Advanced Integrator courses.
Day 1 & 2 (9-10th February) - THX-HAA HT Integrator Certification
This is a how-to design/calibrate class evenly split between class room training and a hands-on workshop. While designed for the integrator, it continues with the HT Design principles introduced in the HT Advisor class with more technical explanations and examples. It discusses acoustical principles to create a deeper understanding of THX and HAA design standards aiming to prepare the student with better problem solving skills.
The class includes the HAA TurboCal Workshop designed to start you running with 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 analyser, how to be a pro listener, calibration documentation, advanced sub-woofer calibration, and designing a practical acoustical treatment strategy.
Day 3 & 4 (11-12th February) - THX-HAA HT Advanced Integrator Certification
This hand-on workshop is designed to bring all the prerequisite training to the test. You will team up with 5 others to incrementally design and calibrate a high performance system. Following the course, you will understand subwoofer placement, room modal analysis, speaker/seating placement and acoustical treatment design from both a theoretical and experiential point of view.
Personal audio analysers and laptops are welcome for your specific questions but are not required. THX will provide computers and test gear for the classes. Seminars usually run from 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM each day.
Please note, there is no refund if you cancel within thirty days of the class date.
