    ‘High levels of intelligibility’ isn’t the first phrase that comes to mind when you envision a gymnasium full of middle-schoolers. Nevertheless, that’s exactly what the Laura Bush Middle School (LBMS) has achieved with the recent installation of Tannoy’s high-performance VQ Series and V-Series loudspeakers in their gymnasium. Primarily, the system is used for reinforcement of speech and music for assemblies, pep rallies, volleyball and basketball games, but one of the first uses of the audio system was an address by… View this post

    Built in the mid-1920s, The Moody Church in downtown Chicago accommodates more than 3,700 worshippers, making it the largest non-pillared auditorium in the metro area. Amplification inside the vast oval sanctuary was once fraught with challenges until the recent replacement of a 20-year-old main cluster with a new Meyer Sound MINA line array system. “To the untrained eye, the new cluster doesn’t look that much different,” admits Michael Arman, the church’s audio/visual technical coordinator, “so you might not notice we… View this post

    Editor’s Note: While this article discusses delays in a theater environment, the information can be applied to any situation. In an ideal world, the best system would be a single point source that would cover every single seat in the house at the same level with the same frequency response. This is easy to state, tough to execute. Most theaters have walls, ceilings, domes, balcony boxes and balcony fronts, chandeliers, canopies, sidewall projections, pillars, pilasters, plaster pachyderms, which get in… View this post
