Glen Landing Middle School Sound System

Glen Landing Middle School Sound System

System Requirements

Glen Landing Middle School, located in Blackwood, NJ was in need new sound system for their cafeteria, which also served as the school’s performance space.  The existing sound system was pieced together over many years and did not provide adequate coverage or quality.

Equipped with a stage, and hard floors, the new school sound system had to provide high-quality sound while taking into account the room’s acoustics.

There were numerous complaints about coverage, quality, and the ability for the system to handle large performances.


System Design

Laser measurements were taken of the entire room, noting where chairs are set up as well as potential mounting points for the new loudspeakers.  Using a sound system modeling program, we designed a system using Community’s i-Series loudspeakers.  We selected the optimal pattern to provide coverage for the entire space.  A digital processor with a touch screen was installed so the system can be used without setting up the mixing console, making it easy to use for lunches and faculty meetings.  For performances, the digital mixing console can be set up on stage, or in the back of the room.  Wireless iPad control is also available for the system.

Equipment list:

Community I-series loudspeakers

Community ALC-1604 amplifier

Allen & Heath QU24 digital mixing console with digital snake

Audix MB 8450 and MB  choir microphones

RF Venue D-Fin antenna


Result

The new school sound system has been used for a holiday performance and for an assembly and has been a major improvement for students, staff, and guests.

Ocean Road Elementary School Cafeteria Sound System

Ocean Road Elementary School Cafeteria Sound System

System Requirements

The Ocean Road Elementary School, located in Point Pleasant, NJ, needed a new sound system for their cafeteria.  The ‘cafetorium”, as it is referred to is not only used for lunches, but for performances and board of education meetings.  A new sound system was needed to provide a PA system for daily lunches, as well as high-quality speech and music reinforcement for the school’s choir and musical performances. 

System Design

After a successful demo of Community Loudspeaker’s ENTASYS columns, a double stack pair was installed on each side of the stage.  These columns provide even coverage from the front to the back of the room as well as high gain before feedback, which is very helpful for the board of education meetings.  A pair of subwoofers were mounted to the wall with custom brackets to keep them off the floor.  The system is powered by Crown amplifiers with Shure SLX wireless microphones and a Soundcraft mixing console.


Result

The new sound system is used daily and provides outstanding intelligibility with full-range performance.

Cafeteria Audio System

Clearview Middle School Cafeteria Audio System

System Requirements

The new cafeteria audio system for Clearview Middle School had to provide even sound coverage and clear announcements.  The existing sound system tied into the paging loudspeakers that were installed when the school was built.  These loudspeakers did not provide enough coverage and were not clear, especially over the noise during lunches.


System Design

When designing an audio system for a cafeteria, we take into account the sound levels during lunches, as announcements will need to be clear and understandable.  Our design team took laser measurements of the cafeteria and used software to create a layout of distributed ceiling loudspeakers.  This ensured even sound coverage throughout for the best possible cafeteria audio system.

Equipment list:

  • Community ceiling loudspeakers
  • Crown CDi-series amplifier
  • Shure SLX-series wireless microphone
  • Furman power conditioner
  • Middle Atlantic locking equipment rack

Result

The new cafeteria audio system has been a huge improvement for the staff and students.  Announcements are clear, without being too loud.  It is easy for staff to connect their phone or microphone within the cafeteria and the wireless microphone allows for the staff to move around freely.
