About NEUASA: We are the first national student organization of the Acoustical Society of America in Boston. Within the Society there are over 13 subcategories of acoustics ranging from underwater to architectural. NEUASA strives to build a cross-disciplinary community on campus for students who are interested in acoustics and to provide an environment that enables first hand experience and sharing of ideas.

He is a co-founder of several companies, holds 9 patents, and has made a career of something he developed a passion for in high school. He co-advises the Wireless Club and has been a licensed amateur radio operator for better than years. His degrees are from Northeastern in electrical engineering and his graduate research was in acoustics.
We will investigate loudspeakers and some of their characteristics, how to select them, a quick way to determine the best enclosure size, and have some hands-on experimentation with real equipment and loudspeakers.
