Wye Cables….Why not?

July 26, 2017 by Ben Stowe, CTS
A DJ recently posed the following question on an industry chat board, “If it’s such a bad idea why do so many Djs do it?” I think the simplest answer to the question would be that there are a lot of things people don’t understand, and in the absence of good information they do things that shouldn’t be done. This isn’t exclusive to DJs, not even by a long shot. If it were, we wouldn’t have the Darwin Awards or those great shows on TruTV documenting poor decision making at it’s finest.   The topic that prompted him to post that question was whether or not you could/should sum the outputs of a mixer using a wye cable so...

American Audio Is Ready To Make A Big Impact

July 26, 2017 by Mobile Beat
If you use portable speakers, you no doubt have or need speaker stands.  American Audio has reinvented the humble speaker stand to be an eye-catching statement that helps to create a safe and inviting atmosphere. With a familiar shape and offering adjustable height between 3.6ft and 6.14ft, the CSL-100 can support any speaker up to a weight of 60 pounds. However, what sets it apart from any other stand on the market is its legs, which are constructed from robust opaque polycarbonate and contain a series of multi-color LEDs. These can be used to make the legs glow in a choice of 20 static colors or come to life through the use of 22 dynamic... [read more]

It All Starts with a Conversation

July 26, 2017 by Mobile Beat Staff Writer
The audience is ready, you have the microphone, and now you are about to open your mouth to address everyone. The question is, will your comments uplift the audience or prove to be utterly useless? This one tip could actually determine your success right from the start. I have been a speaker now for over seventeen years. From keynote presentations to workshops, I have been in front of every type of audience you can imagine.

The Phrase That Pays Part Four – Help

July 25, 2017 by Mitch Taylor
This is Part 4 in our Phrase That Pays series and the word from the phrase How Can I Help You for today is Help.   The Beatles said it best. Help. I need somebody help. Not just anybody help.  Helping is what sales is all about.  Your potential client has a problem. They believe they may need whatever it is that you offer. They feel that you might be the best fit for their problem. Otherwise, why would they have contacted you at all? At least they gave you a call or an email right? You have an opportunity before that first contact to make a mental shift.  You can approach them from a mindset of they just want... [read more]

Feeling Comfortable?

July 25, 2017 by Dave Ternier
In August 2011 I attended an “event” that set the stage for what getting uncomfortable felt like. I had travelled to Minneapolis, Minnesota with a colleague and the truth was that neither of us had never felt so incompetent and unsure of ourselves. We nearly left half way through, but in the end, we allowed ourselves the experience of becoming incredibly vulnerable in a space with complete strangers. It was my very first MarBecca workshop…and it was very, very uncomfortable. I don’t recall a single time in my life prior to that point when I felt pushed to become so uncomfortable. It sucked. Plain and simple, it was awful. But yet, since then I have travelled to many more MarBecca workshops for more of that feeling…that unique experience of being made to feel completely, nakedly and uncontrollably... [read more]
