Signal To Noise, Episode 115: Loudspeaker Designer Rich Frembes

Listen to the podcast interview with Rich Frembes here.

Rich Frembes of Fulcrum Acoustic joins the hosts in Episode 115 and talks about a wide range of loudspeaker design issues, including how to know when a design is not going to work and when to move on, the “personal” aspect of design, and much more. The Signal To Noise podcast is sponsored by Audix and Allen & Heath.

Frembes joined Fulcrum — then a manufacturing start-up — in 2009 following a decade with Eastern Acoustic Works (EAW). During his time with EAW, he advanced steadily through several positions in application/customer support and product development, and also consulted on custom loudspeaker projects and conducted on-site system optimization sessions for high-profile clients. At Fulcrum, he works closely with noted designer Dave Gunness on all aspects of the product line.

A native of Michigan, Frembes previously served as a front of house and monitor engineer with regional and touring bands in the Midwest. It’s been said that he can detect the amplitude and frequency of a mosquito’s whine and then provide that mosquito with high-fidelity concert amplification. In his spare time, he contemplates the fate of neo-capitalist ideologies in a poststructural era, and he’s also an inveterate collector of wooden spoons. In 2014, Frembes was the recipient of the prestigious Willard Scott medallion for his life-long dedication to the pursuit of weather monitoring and forecasting.
