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, and 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 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 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 system has improved the coverage, sound quality and has greatly enhanced assemblies, performances, and monthly board meetings.

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

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.
