Salem Middle School Auditorium Sound System

Salem Middle School Auditorium Sound System

System Requirements

Salem Middle School was using a portable sound system for events and shows and was looking to have a permanent sound system installed to provide a high quality audio experience by staff, students, and guests.


System Design

Our certified design team took 360 photos and measurements of the room and created a model as a proof of concept to ensure the positioning of the proposed loudspeakers would cover the entire room.  Since there was not a room or booth to house a mixing console, a rack-mount digital mixer that can be controlled by an iPad was proposed.

Featured Equipment:

    • JBL CBT column line array loudspeakers.
    • JBL SB2210 subwoofers
    • Allen & Heath QuPac digital mixer
    • LEA CS704 digital amplifier
    • Shure BLX-R wireless microphones

Result

The new sound system sounds great, and has been a welcome addition to students, staff, and guests.  Every seat has great audio quality, and the digital mixer allows staff the ability to program presets and save settings.

Pittsgrove Middle School Band Room Acoustics

System Requirements

Pittsgrove Middle School wanted to reduce the “echo” and “loudness” in its band room. The hope was that adding the treatment would also help reduce sound transmission to other nearby classrooms.


System Design

The first step was to take laser measurements of the room and impulses, which we accomplished by popping balloons and recording them with a digital recorder.

With software, we analyzed the acoustics of the room and created a layout with the appropriate panels to help control the sound level and bouncing.

Featured Equipment:


Result

The acoustics panels accomplished the school’s goal of controlling the sound, and the alternating colors also add some aesthetic value.

Manville High School Gym Sound System

Manville High School Gymnasium Sound System

System Requirements

Manville High School, located in Manville, NJ needed a new gym sound system that could handle high speech and music levels, and provide clear sound for the entire space.  The school had several sound systems installed over the years, which did not work well in the space.


System Design

Our commercial audio-video design team took laser measurements of the gymnasium to create a 3D model for a loudspeaker layout.  We took into account coverage for the floor and court, as well as the bleachers.  When designing a gymnasium sound system, we also consider the acoustics and mounting points.  We came up with a layout of loudspeakers to provide coverage for both sets of bleachers, and the floor so everyone could hear clearly.  The school needed a simple interface, so we provided an 8″ touch screen with a custom layout to control the microphones and music.  We also programmed the building PA into the system, so when announcements are made, the system will lower the audio so everyone can hear.

Featured Equipment:


Result

The new sound system provides even coverage, great sound quality and is extremely easy to use.  Regardless of where you are seated or standing, you have crystal clear audio.

Primal Cape May Restaurant Sound System

System Requirements

Primal Restaurant Cape May opened in 2021 on the beach in downtown Cape May, NJ.  They needed a new sound system for their restaurant that would provide good audio levels throughout the seating areas, as well as the main front and back beach entrance.  The outdoor loudspeakers had to be able to withstand the salt air and direct exposure to the elements.


System Design

Our design team took a floor plan of the space to create an ideal restaurant sound system layout with loudspeakers in various zones for the best coverage.  We selected a series from JBL which have good full-range sound, even at low levels.  Local volume controls allow the staff to easily adjust the levels as needed.

Featured Equipment:


Result

The new restaurant sound system is easy to use and sounds great.  Guests can enjoy nice background music without having to talk over the audio.

Absegami High School Gym Sound System

System Requirements

The Absegami High School gym sound system was comprised of older loudspeakers and amplifiers which had some issues and were not working well.  Recently, they had some small paging loudspeakers installed hoping to provide better sound, but that did not solve their issue.  We were contacted to help them upgrade the existing sound system in phases.  They needed better sound, coverage on the floor/court since the existing system did not have any loudspeakers for this area, and local connection inside the gymnasium.

Outdoor PA System for Baseball Field

Blackwood Little League Outdoor PA System

System Requirements

The Blackwood Kiwanis Little League Baseball organization needed a new outdoor PA system for their main field.


System Design

Our team reviewed the areas that needed sound coverage and the possible mounting points.  The backstop was the ideal choice as it allowed us to aim the new PA speakers down the 1st and 3rd base side and onto the field.  We selected the JBL AWC-series speakers due to sound quality and reliability.

Featured Equipment:

    • Three JBL AWC82 outdoor PA loudspeakers
    • Crown XLS2502 amplifier
    • Rolls rack-mount mixer

Result

Orthodox Church of the Holy Cross Sound and Streaming System

System Requirements

The Orthodox Church of the Holy Cross, located in Medford, NJ needed a new sound and streaming system.  Prior to our involvement, they were using a phone for streaming and had a pair of home theater loudspeakers for their sound system.  For streaming, they needed a permanently installed camera that could capture the entire Church and was easy to operate.  For sound, they needed even coverage front to back, and something that would work with their loud HVAC system.  They also wanted an audio/video system in their basement which could serve as both an overflow area, and separate meeting space.


System Design

We took laser measurements of the Church to begin our design.  From there, we created a layout of the systems to present to the Church.  Since the HVAC system was a major concern, we provided a demo of the proposed equipment to ensure that there would be no issues.  We lead with a PTZOptics PTZ camera on the back wall, which can be controlled by the Church’s laptop.  For the sound system, we have an iPad controllable mixer with simple presets.  JBL CBT columns mounted on the side walls provide great coverage and sound quality for the entire Church.

Featured Equipment

Result

The new sound and sound and streaming system is easy to use and provides a high-quality experience for both in-person and virtual viewing.  The mixer presets allow anyone to have the system running easily, and the streaming setup provides clear video for live streaming and to the basement AV system.

Cape May Police Academy Audio/Video System

System Requirements

With social distancing requirements, the Cape May Police Academy had to spread their recruits to an overflow classroom.  The issue they ran into was getting clear and reliable audio and video between each room.  They first tried using laptops with a conferencing app, but there were delays and lags which caused disruptions to the classes.  They needed a system that worked independently off of the network and would allow for clear two-way audio/visual communcation.


System Design

The system design accounted for the room sizes, and the need to have clear audio with no echo.  We designed the system around Shure’s MXA series microphone.  We selected the 4′ 710 model, which was mounted to the ceiling in the far classroom.  This allowed the instructor in the far classroom the ability to hear questions and comments from recruits.  The instructor wears a wireless microphone which broadcasts locally through the existing sound system as well into the far end classroom.  A QSC Core 8 Flex processor handles all of the routing and processing for the entire system.

Featured Equipment
  • Shure MXA710 linear array microphone
  • QSC Core 8 Flex digital signal processor
  • PTZOptics Z Cam

Result

The new system allows the instructor to hear questions and comments from the far end classroom, while the recruits in the far classroom can see and hear the instructor clearly.  The system is easy to use and requires minimal user interface.
