Truth in Audio Welcomes Celestion as a School Sponsor

Las Vegas, NV (May 20, 2019) — Truth in Audio (TIA), the company comprised of accomplished live sound veterans which provides unsurpassed educational opportunities in the live sound industry along with information from manufacturers on cutting edge technologies and products, is very pleased to announce that Celestion, one of the world’s premier suppliers of professional loudspeakers and compression drivers for sound reinforcement applications, has partnered with the group as a school sponsor.

Truth in Audio is a company that provides both new and experienced live sound students with unique educational opportunities, taught by some of the most accomplished professionals in the industry today. Founder and President Bernie Broderick, with a long career working for some of the industry’s most prominent loudspeaker manufacturers (Adamson, L-ACOUSTICS and EAW,) founded TIA  as a company to provide rich educational opportunities in the live sound industry as well as a conduit to connect manufacturers technologies and products with the industry. TIA offers students the unique opportunity to stay current with the industry’s leading techniques, trends and best practices, and a means to keep abreast of the latest in manufacturer technologies. TIA brings together the contributions of many of the live sound industry’s most accomplished veterans, including FOH engineers, monitor engineers, systems technicians, product designers and leading pro audio business executives to provide content for the curriculum, providing historical perspective, as well as a very broad cross-section of personal interpretations of the live sound craft.

“Truth in Audio looks forward to a great partnership with Celestion, a company with a rich history of designing and manufacturing loudspeaker drivers and components, who continue to develop cutting edge technology,” says Truth in Audio Founder and President Bernie Broderick.  “The new AxiPeriodic drivers from Celestion are a perfect example, having used them in our Green Monster Project. We look forward to sharing this and other advanced technologies with the students in our live sound programs.”

Performing the role of two speakers in one, the Celestion Axi2050 is a high power, high-output driver which reproduces a maximum frequency range of 300Hz-20,000Hz without the need for a midband crossover. The Axi2050 delivers an exceptionally coherent signal, particularly in the critical listening band and an extended frequency range; enhancing clarity and speech intelligibility, as well as reproducing music more dynamically and with greater coherence. In contrast to most existing high-sensitivity, wideband drivers which are designed with two separate diaphragms, the Axi2050 uses a single, large diameter, sculpted, circumferentially axiperiodic, annular titanium diaphragm. This breakthrough technology enables the device’s remarkable wideband output, as well as providing a number of other significant advantages.

“We look forward to working with the talented Truth in Audio team,” adds Ralph Nichols, Celestion VP of Business Development, North America.  “This is a great opportunity to work with a uniquely qualified organization to educate the current and future generations of sound engineers and promote the passion of live sound audio, as well as educate them about our new technologies and create even further awareness of the Celestion brand.”
