Rosa Middle School Gymnasium Sound System

System Requirements

Rosa Middle School, located in Cherry Hill, NJ needed a new sound system in their gymnasium.  The space hosts daily gym classes, pep rallies, and school events.  A portable system was brought in each time, which was time-consuming to set up and left cables all over the floor.

The new sound system had to provide high-level, even coverage and the main components had to be simple to operate.


System Design

We designed a press box based system which kept costs reasonable while still providing coverage for the entire stadium.  We repurposed an existing loudspeaker as well as one of the wireless microphones.

Featured Equipment:

    • QSC AD-S12 Loudspeakers
    • QSC CXD Amplifier
    • Shure BLX-R Wireless Microphones
    • Alesis Rack-Mount Mixer

Result

The new sound system sounds great with both speech and music and is used daily by staff.

Camden Catholic High School Stadium Sound System

System Requirements

Camden Catholic High School had an older stadium sound system that was pieced together over the years and improperly installed.  The system was down to one functioning loudspeaker and with a playoff game coming up and the school hosting the Thanksgiving game, a new, reliable system was needed.


System Design

We designed a press box based system which kept costs reasonable while still providing coverage for the entire stadium.  We repurposed an existing loudspeaker as well as one of the wireless microphones.

Featured Equipment:

    • Community R.5-94Z cabinets for the left and right side with an R.25-94Z for the center.
    • Repurposed Community R1 for field and visitor’s stands coverage.
    • Crown XTi4002 Amplifiers
    • Alesis rack-mount mixer.
    • Remote audio inputs located at the track.

Result

The new sound system provides coverage for the entire stadium and is simple to operate.   The new equipment rack freed up counter space and allows the system to be locked when not in use.

Highland High School Stadium Sound System

System Requirements

The new sound system had to provide sound for the entire stadium, which included new bleachers that are much wider than the previous set.  Additionally, the school wanted to eliminate renting equipment for graduation and needed a system that could provide sound reinforcement for this event.

    • QSC and Crown Amplifiers
    • QSC TouchMix digital mixer with iPad Control

Featured Equipment:

  • Community R.5-96MAX loudspeakers.
  • Community R.35-3896 loudspeaker.
  • Community ALC-1604 amplifier.

Immaculata University Stadium Sound System

Immaculata University Stadium Sound System

System Requirements

Immaculata University’s Draper Walsh Stadium needed an upgrade to the sound system.  Most of the main loudspeakers were blown and the overall system operation was complicated.  With a short timeline, a new loudspeaker was needed to provide sound for the entire stadium while simplifying the operation.  Prior to our involvement, users needed access to an amplifier closet where they had to manually turn on a rack full of amplifiers.


System Design

Using EASE focus, we verified that using the existing poles would cover the stadium as intended.  Adding a Furman sequencer system with a remote power switch in the press box allowed for powering the downstairs amplifier rack from within the press box.

Featured Equipment
  • Community R.5MAX loudspeakers mounted on the poles
  • Community R.35-3896 loudspeaker on the front of the pressbox
  • Community ALC-1604 amplifier
  • Furman power conditioner/sequencer

Result

The new loudspeaker system provides high-level, intelligible sound for the entire stadium.  Both the stands and field are covered and the processing built into the amplifiers provide protection for overdriving the system.

Paul VI High School Stadium Sound System

Paul VI High School Stadium Sound System

System Requirements

The Paul VI High School stadium did not have a permanently installed sound system, so for games, they set up portable loudspeakers.  They needed a permanent system that would cover the home stands, field, and visitor’s stands, all from the press box, as mounting on the poles would require breaking concrete and trenching.


System Design

Using EASE, an acoustical sound system modeling program, we created a 3D model of the stadium and placed the proposed loudspeakers on the press box.  After some aiming and tweaking, we were happy with the coverage and the system was approved and ordered.

With the R2s, we have great pattern control, exceptional low-frequency response and plenty of headroom which allows the system to be clear over crowd noise.

Featured Equipment
  • Community R2 loudspeakers (various models)
  • Crown CDi amplifiers
  • Shure SLX wireless microphones
  • Furman power conditioner/sequencer

Result

The new stadium sound provides exceptional speech and music reinforcement and covers the entire stadium.  Announcements are clear over the crown noise, and music has a full-range sound.

Allentown High School Baseball Field Sound System

System Requirements

After the successful installation of their stadium sound system, Allentown High School’s baseball team hired JD Sound and Video to install a new outdoor sound system for their field.  The new baseball field sound system had to provide sound for the 1st and 3rd base sides, as well as onto the field.


System Design

(3) JBL AWC82 outdoor loudspeakers mounted to the backstop.

(1) Crown XLS-series amplifier.

(1) Rolls rack-mount audio mixer.
