Trainee Acoustic Engineer and Laboratory Technician

Sennheiser electronic GmbH & Co. KG
(1 year 1 month)Wedemark, Germany

I spent 13 months working at Sennheiser in the Studio Monitor department under the Erasmus Programme. This included work on the Neumann range of studio monitor loudspeakers. My typical tasks involved:

- Measuring various aspects of partially or fully assembled speakers in the anechoic chamber

- These included but were not limited to: frequency response, group delay, phase, harmonic and intermodulation distortion, maximum SPL and directivity

- Measurements of individual drivers using the 'Klippel' measurement system - ranging from 1 inch tweeters all the way up to 12 inch subwoofer drivers

- Design and simulation of loudspeakers and subwoofers

Trainee Engineer

KEF Audio, GP Acoustics (UK) Ltd
(2 months)Tovil, Maidstone, Kent, UK

- Analysed frequency response of a driver by measuring the velocity of the cone with laser.

- Measured the voltage across loudspeaker crossovers over the 20 - 40k frequency range. Checked for errors and gave them a pass or fail by comparing them to the reference crossover.

- Graphed electrical impedance of LF driver over the frequency range. Identified the resonant frequency and other defining features.

- Measured acoustic frequency response of newly produced speakers in anechoic chamber. Compared against lab standard speaker and accepted if within a 1dB tolerance.

Labourer

AJ Building Services Ltd
