Among them, College of the Holy Cross stands out as one of the first Roman Catholic colleges in the region, if not the entire country. Its alumni include US Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, NBC’s Chris Matthews, and LSD pioneer Timothy Leary.

    The principal venue of Aotea Centre in New Zealand, the ASB Theatre has installed a Meyer Sound Constellation acoustic system as part of its recent renovation. By subtly augmenting the theatre’s reverberant characteristics, Constellation creates an immersive acoustic atmosphere and enhances the audience’s sense of envelopment. The improvement was noted by New Zealand Herald music critic Brian Rudman: “From the opening rumbles of the orchestra it was obvious that something magical had happened during the interior upgrading. Instead of the… View this story

    Constructed inside the shell of a vacated Boeing Defense Systems plant, Eastside Christian Church in Anaheim, CA is centered on a 1,765-seat worship auditorium. A Meyer Sound Constellation acoustic system and a MICA line arrays were recently installed at the venue to provide flexible sonic enhancement for Eastside’s contemporary worship band and musical events. In addition to supplying variable acoustics, Constellation also helps lend a sense of small-room intimacy to the teaching segments of senior pastor Gene Appel and others.… View this story

    This article is provided by Audio Geek Zine.   This week one of my neighbors left his unwanted Ikea bed frame in the alley. Among the parts of the bed was a set of SULTAN LADE slatted base. In other words: 20 3/4-in pine boards for free. Keep an eye out for these because they can be used for a ton of simple DIY projects. With these, I decided to make some super simple diffusors to cover up the bare… View this story

    Home of celebrated conductor Vladimir Spivakov and the National Philharmonic of Russia, Svetlanov Hall is the principal venue of Moscow’s International Performing Arts Center. To expand its range of concert fare, the 1,735-seat venue recently installed a Meyer Sound Constellation acoustic system and a reinforcement system based around MICA line array loudspeakers. With an architectural reverberation time of 1.7 seconds, the hall suits orchestral performance well, but is less accommodating of other musical genres. Now with Constellation, Svetlanov Hall can… View this story

They can be used to control early reflections as well as act as a bass trap when stood across a room’s corners. Each ProGO… View this story

    When planning its new performing arts centre, the Mansfield, Tex., school district faced a dilemma. Though it was determined that both a large auditorium and a smaller performance hall would be ideal for its range of events, their budget could not justify building and maintaining multiple spaces. A solution was soon found in the multi-use Cunningham Performance Hall of the Mansfield ISD Center for the Performing Arts, which utilizes a Meyer Sound Constellation acoustic system to provide the ideal acoustics… View this story

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   Whenever I do clinics at universities I always get a number of questions about home studio construction, since most every musician wants and needs one. One of the most frequent questions is about ways to increase isolation so the neighbors won’t hear what you’re doing. Here’s an excerpt from The Studio Builder’s Handbook that explains the two principles involved in acoustic isolation. “When building almost any kind of space (especially a home… View this story
