Live Sound Loudspeaker Demo
13 Manufacturers / 26 Systems
October 10-12, 2017 / Dallas, TX
FREE Live Sound Demo

The fall Live Sound International (LSI) Loudspeaker Demo 2017 — a.k.a., “The Ultimate Loudspeaker Experience” — will take place this October during the WFX Expo in Dallas, Texas, held at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center. The demo will feature 13 loudspeaker manufacturers, each bringing a compact and portable system for evaluation — 26 different loudspeakers will be on site. 

Both the portable and compact loudspeakers will reside in the same listening area, and the format will be the same for both.

During each demo session all systems will play identical tracks. Listeners will be able to move from system to system to evaluate what they hear and observe each system’s scale, components and other important details. Manufacturer’s representatives will be on-site to answer questions.

Top theater architects, sound designers and production personnel will be on site to explore new products and technologies.

Controlled listening environment.

loudspeaker systems hosted in one area.

Unique Free Event

Held in conjunction with WFX Expo 2017, the loudspeaker demo is a must-have experience for live sound professionals. The loudspeaker demo provides attendees with the rare opportunity to listen to a variety of systems (line arrays and portable systems) in a controlled environment. 

How It Works

During each compact and portable session, systems are fed identical music tracks. Listeners can evaluate what they hear and also observe each system’s scale, components and other important details, in addition to getting further technical details and pricing information from qualified representatives of each company participating in the demo.
