He was elected a Fellow of the Audio Engineering Scoiety in 1984 for his published research on radiation patterns from loudspeakers, the acoustical transmission of perforated cinema screens, and the theory of sound-system feedback. He is a certification examiner for the Custom Electronic Design and Installation Association. He has written more than 350 published papers, articles, and anthology chapters, and several books.
