Gateway High School Gymnasium Sound System

Gateway High School Gymnasium Sound System

System Requirements

The Gateway High School Gymnasium Sound System had large horns which were designed for stadium use, causing harsh and uneven sound.  The school needed a new system that provides coverage for the floor and bleachers, as well as simple control.


System Design

Our design team created a distributed layout to cover the floor/court as well as the bleachers.  Most gymnasium sound systems cover the bleachers only, making it hard to hear on the floor.

Equipment list:

12 Community R.35 loudspeakers.

1 Community Dual 15″ Subwoofer

QSC Amplifiers

Shure BLX-R wireless microphones

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.
