 I find simple things hard to understand due to lack on concentration.

1.  If that's true, maybe professional audio just isn't a good choice for you?  Audio really is managing a million simple things simultaneously.  Under pressure.  And deadlines.

2.  Don't fall prey to the paralysis of analysis.  Do something.

I will speak from my experience.

If you are running continuous music playback and you are running heavy bass music which is pretty much standard with today's hip hop and dance DO NOT and I mean DO NOT power them at the program rating which would be around 3000rms if I am not mistaken for the JBL.

Power them around 1600 (JBL) and you will be golden.  I have setup a few different dual 18's in a few different venues and they blew, not becasue the DJ is an idiot, becasue the woofers were over driven.  I switched out the amp to match the continuous rating of the subs and everything was better.  I could not tell the difference in sound either. (SPL)

If this is for live situations,then that is a completely different story.

being diagnosed with adhd in the 80s, when the time came to listen to mindless repetitive beats or grunge or green day type stuff with my peers, i chose repetition.  Orchestras performing john cage and steve reich seem to as well.  Have you never had the pleasure of listening to a drum circle?Smile

jack, adhd is a copout and can actually help you with sound stuff if you harness its energy instead of scattering it everywhere.

...If you admit that you cannot/will not understand-then asking the same questions over and over again and again will not get you anywhere.  You STILL will not get it...

Of course, if people are going to keep "answering" the same questions over and over..... Shocked

Ok, will do then. Thanks. As for me having a severe lack of concentration, most of the work I
do is hooking systems up and sometimes adjusting the eq, if need be, that is. I get on good with eq'ing because even though I have trouble concentrating, i've found out that if I try and keep focused and dont let my mind wander i'm ok. I know what my ears like, and if it sounds ok to my ears then thats good enough for me. And i've not had a single complaint from anyone who's system i've set up. But hell, i'm not anywhere near a good engineer.

Thanks andy. I lose concentration mainly when i've been doiong something for more than 60 seconds, so to combat it, I try and refresh myself when I start to feel my mind wander. I suppose its kind of like taking a time out. But a short time out, just to refocus again.
