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.

Auditorium Video System

Bordentown Middle School Auditorium Video System

System Requirements

Bordentown Middle School was in need of a permanently installed auditorium video system.  The new system would be used for events and presentations.

The existing system was comprised of a 30-year old screen and a small projector on a cart, which required wires to be draped across the floor.

The school wanted to have a large projection screen, and inputs in the front of the stage and sound booth.


System Design

As part of our auditorium video system design, we took laser and light measurements.  Our team determined the lumen requirements for the projector and the correct projection screen size.  We reviewed the vertical space on stage for the screen, as well as the ambient light in the auditorium.

Equipment list:

Eiki 6,000 lumen projector

DaLite Tensioned Electric Projection Screen

Atlona video input plates, providing VGA and HDMI connectivity on the front of the stage, and in the sound booth.

Creston BPC-8 wall controller for simple control of the projector.


Result

The new auditorium video system is used often for presentations and events and has eliminated the need to wheel out equipment and provides a larger and brighter image.

Philadelphia Military Academy Auditorium Sound System

System Requirements

The Widener University Baseball Stadium did not have a permanent sound system installed, and would have to set up a powered loudspeaker in the window.  This became a hassle and didn’t provide adequate coverage.  The new system had to cover three sections of bleachers and the field, with the ability to handle both speech and music.


System Design

Featured Equipment:

    • Three Community R.35-3896 loudspeakers for the stands.
    • One Community R.5MAX for the field.
    • Crown XTI-4002 amplifiers.
    • Shure rack-mount mixer.

Result

The new system covers all three sections of the stands evenly as well as onto the field.  Both spectators and athletes experience high-quality sound and the operation of the system is simple for the staff.

Wall Intermediate School Auditorium Sound System

Wall Intermediate School Auditorium Sound System

System Requirements

The existing sound system in the Wall Intermediate School’s auditorium lacked coverage and clarity. Due to the position of the existing loudspeakers being over the stage, there was an issue of feedback.  Additionally, the controls were located on stage so there was no way of mixing the sound from within the audience area.

The new school auditorium sound system had to cover the seats, which are laid out in a 180 degree, raked circle.  Additionally, controls needed to be in the back of the auditorium with additional connectivity.


System Design

Using EASE Focus, we designed a QSC-based loudspeaker system utilizing their `AD-S12 cabinets.  An AD-S8 was added as a foldback monitor for the stage.

Featured Equipment:

  • QSC AD-12 loudspeakers for the audience seating.
  • QSC AD-S8 loudspeaker as a foldback monitor for the stage.
  • QSC CXD4.5 amplifier.
  • QSC TouchMix30 digital mixer with iPad control.
  • Shure BLX-R handheld wireless microphone.
  • Two 8X4 Rapco snakes, one each installed on each side of the stage.

Result

The new auditorium sound system has improved coverage and sound quality. Assemblies, performances, and monthly board meetings have all benefited from this.

South Brunswick Theater Sound System

South Brunswick High School Theater Sound System

System Requirements

The new high school theater sound system had to provide coverage for the entire theater, including the back raised area.  The project was a complete overhaul with new loudspeakers, mixing console, control system, and wireless microphone package.

The back part of the theater has walls that close creating small lecture halls, so the system had to be adaptable to multiple configurations.


System Design

One of our specialties is high school theater sound systems, so our design team was a natural fit for the project.  Working with our colleague, Hadi Sumoro with HX Audio Lab, we created a full 3D model of the space for a new speaker system.

Equipment list:

Community IV6 Line Array Cabinets

Community  IV6-118s Subwoofers

(4) QSC PL380 Amplifier

(1) QSC Core 110F Digital Signal Processor

(1) Allen & Heath D-Live Digital Mixing Console


Result

The new high school theater sound system provides coverage for the entire theater, including the raked seating in the lecture hall areas without any delays.  The quality of sound and additional functionality now allows the room to be used for any event, big or small.

Kingsway High School Auditorium Sound System

Kingsway High School Auditorium Sound System

System Requirements

Kingsway Regional High School, located in Swedesboro (Woolwich Township) New Jersey was in need of a new high-performance sound system for their 700-seat Eitel Theater.  After years of renting equipment for their musical and events, the district had the funding to install a permanent sound system for the space.  After installing their stadium sound system the previous year, JD Sound and Video was brought in to complete a design.

System Design

We took on-site laser measurements of the auditorium which allowed us to create a 3D model of the space.  We imported this into EASE, an acoustical modeling and sound system design program and created a loudspeaker design consisting of three

(3) Community IP8-1153

(1) Community i2W8

(2) QSC CXD-series amplifiers

(1) Community dSPEC DSP

(2) Shure ULX-D wireless microphone systems

(1) Behringer X32 Mixing Console


Result

The new sound system provides exceptional speech and music reinforcement with even coverage throughout the space.

Triton High School Auditorium Sound System

System Requirements

The new school auditorium sound system for Triton High School had to provide significant improvement of both sound quality and coverage.   The existing system was comprised of two loudspeakers, mounted on the side walls.  The sound coverage varied greatly, and the system could not handle full-range sound, which was critical for musicals and talent shows.


System Design

The auditorium had good acoustics, so we weren’t worried about reflections or issues with the room itself.  We used EASE Focus and worked with our design team on a left/right hang of QSC’s KLA-12 line arrays with powered subwoofers.

Featured Equipment
  • QSC KLA-12 Powered Line Arrays
  • Symetrix Digital Signal Processor
  • Shure QLX-D wireless microphones
  • Furman power conditioner/sequencer

Result

The new school auditorium sound system has been a huge improvement for the school.  Vocals are clear, and music sounds natural and full-range.  The new mixer allows for wireless control via iPad, and the new wireless microphones can be managed from Shure’s Wireless Workbench software.

Highland High School Auditorium Sound System

Highland High School Auditorium

System Requirements

The new sound system had to provide high-quality speech and music reinforcement while not blocking any sight lines or lighting fixtures.  The existing system was over 20 years old and was not capable of handling high-level music, which was a requirement of the new system.


System Design

A center cluster would have blocked lighting and the projector so JD Sound & Video took measurements of the auditorium and used EASE Focus to model a left and right hang of QSC KLA line arrays.  This designed proved to provide good coverage and speech intelligibility and was easy to implement.

Featured Equipment
  • QSC’s KLA powered line arrays and subwoofers
  • Soundcraft Expression digital mixing console
  • Shure SLX wireless microphones
  • Furman remote and rack-mounted sequencers

Result

The new system provides great sound throughout the auditorium.
