System Requirements

Williamstown High School has a large gymnasium with seven sections of bleachers and a balcony area.  The original system, installed when the school was built, consisted of three hanging loudspeakers.  This layout didn’t cover many areas of the gym, wasn’t loud enough for events, and the building announcements were unclear.  The athletic director, who recently transferred from a school where we outfitted their gym with a new system, brought us in to design a new system.  After providing a demo to the administration, we were awarded the project.

System Design

After taking laser measurements of the gym, we worked with the technical applications group at Community Loudspeakers to come up with a system design to cover the entire gym.  Using acoustical modeling software, we determined the optimal layout with loudspeaker angles and coverage areas.

Equipment list:

17 Community R.5 loudspeakers

3 Community iS215 subwoofers flown from the ceiling

Rane HAL digital processor

QSC amplifier

Shure SLX wireless microphones


The new gymnasium sound system provides outstanding sound quality for the entire space and allows for simple zone control.
