    I occasionally travel from Sydney Australia to Marcoussis on the south side of Paris for training in advanced concert sound system design and deployment. My new contact at L-Acoustics there is Yann-Gael Gicquel, who I have not met in person yet. It's only a coincidence, but I thought there was a possibility you could be him. (A lot of people that work there are musicians as well as speaker design engineers) So often it is a small world.......:cool:

    Thanks, I hope my French grammar is okay. I also studied Spanish and sometimes confuse the two languages!

    Spanish and French are indeed very similar, there were a couple of mistakes but it was okay :) this forum is very friendly towards newbies, I'm glad I joined :)

    Here Marcoussis is mainly known as the training centre of our national rugby team. You know it, the one that failed in World Cup finals several times (including vs Australia back in 1999 after defeating Jonah Lomu's New Zealand in semi-final) and still never made it to be the World champ.
    I didn't know they also have musical events there.

    Not musical events but it is the home of L-Acoustics manufacturing and design facilities. L-Acoustics makes some of the world's most advanced phase coherent speaker systems for large concert touring and installation systems. They hold patents on several designs of speaker components and computer software for modeling room acoustics. The owner and main designer is by trade an elementary particle physicist and mathematician and has won many awards for his work.

    Things have been pretty rough in Paris recently. But let’s trade houses. You can come live in Portland, Oregon, in our house for a year, and we’ll stay in your house. We love France!
