The Minnetonka Performing Arts Center, located at Minnetonka (Minnesota) High School, has a new sound reinforcement system thanks to Electronic Design Company (EDC) of Shoreview, Minnesota.

The center, a joint operation between the City of Minnetonka and the school district, recently underwent extensive remodeling, including a new sound system for the “Art Center on 7,” a 680-seat proscenium theater headed by NEXO GEO line arrays in a left-center-right (LCR) and subwoofer configuration.

Bryce Larson of Art Center on 7, explains, “We had a short time to make our decision, and looked at several other options. We needed to find a cabinet with the appropriate size and performance for the venue.

“I personally like the way the line arrays work but we needed a small array and NEXO produced the SPL we needed. We don’t need rock ‘n’ roll SPL for the acts that we do. We do a lot of theater, and the GEO S8 is a nice sounding cabinet for that. It produces a high level of vocal clarity and intelligibility without harshness and was exactly what we were looking for.”

The new system also includes a Yamaha DME32 processor for routing, EQ, and other processing on the mains, joined by NEXO NX242 loudspeaker processor.

“We were very impressed with the accuracy of the NEXO GEOSoft design program,” states Rustin Bullert, Manager of Design and Consulting for EDC. “The coverage and frequency response predictions were spot on. The system sounds great and looks great in the venue. Results like this make it easy to have a happy customer.”
