    Following a £5m renovation of Liverpool University’s Senate Drum building, a new teaching facility, complete with advanced AV infrastructure, has been opened under the new name of the Brett Building. Pure Audio Visual was awarded the contract for the upgrade, and the challenge of providing consistent audio in an acoustically awkward cylindrical shaped building has been met by specifying Martin Audio’s DD6 Differential Dispersion technology enclosures. Pure AV’s systems integration specialist Colin Hasted regularly turns to Martin Audio for his… View this story

    Matanuska-Susitna College (MSC) has installed Alaska’s first Meyer Sound Constellation acoustic system in its new Glenn Massay Theater, a 523-seat facility purpose-built for Constellation. The goal of the design was in accommodating a broad range of educational activities and arts performances in a single venue. The venue uses the system to provide ideal acoustics for all its events, including orchestral and choral concerts, student assemblies, lectures, fine arts performances, and amplified rock music. “We’re blown away by how great the… View this story

    Auralex Acoustics offers its Hemisphere Model 180 3D Sound Diffusors, which combine shape and high-impact hardness to diffuse sound evenly across the room to control “flutter & echo” effects. The Auralex Hemisphere is a great choice for tracking spaces, control rooms or any environment in need of control of sound reflections. Hemisphere helps maintain a “live” sound and a 3D sense of openness to the room by randomly scattering mid-to-high frequencies to provide a pleasing listening experience. In addition to… View this story

    St. Patrick’s Catholic Church has served its community in this Washington, D.C. suburb since 1968. The 1000-seat room’s acoustics have always been a challenge, explains Gene Ingham of systems integrator RCI Systems, the company behind the installation of the church’s new Renkus-Heinz Iconyx loudspeakers. “The sanctuary has an A-frame architecture with 35-foot ceilings and lots of windows,” Ingham observes. “The altar area is in the center, the choir is on one side with the organ and piano, and most of… View this story

    An interesting development has occurred in recent times: folks have become much more aware that the acoustic space plays a critical role with respect to the final sound of the room. In other words, unless you “fix the room,” changing the sound system may in fact not solve the problem at all. And truth be known, bringing the room acoustics up to an “acceptable level” is often actually easier than setting up a PA system!  Testing One, Two, Clap Go… View this story
