    It was a double pass for optical fiber at Sunday’s NFL Pro Bowl game at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu. Copper cabling took a beating due to excessive moisture buildup from the rain.  “The issue with copper wasn’t noise for a change, it was water,” said Jeff Kang with Custom Audio, Kaneohe, Hawaii, which has been providing sound reinforcement for Pro Bowl for over 10 years. Fortunately, this year, Kang had contacted FiberPlex Technologies about a MADI-to-optic conversion box for his… View this post

    The Cougars football team of Washington State University plays all of their home games in 33,500-seat Martin Stadium. Recent additions to the stadium necessitated relocating the scoreboard to the opposite end zone, and that in turn inspired a full upgrade to Martin Stadium’s sound reinforcement system. Three Danley Sound Labs J3-64 Jericho Horns, two J4-31 Jericho Horns, and four TH-812 “Rock Monster” subwoofers now fill Martin Stadium with high-fidelity sound. Washington State University called in Anthony James Partners of Richmond,… View this post

Here are some examples of this distinctive lingo: Battens: Long horizontal pipes found in theatres that are used for hanging curtains and scenery. They always seem to be in an optimized lowered position so we can hit our heads of them during load-in and load-out.  Biscuit: A… View this post

    The “new” Sibley Building in downtown Rochester, New York rose out of the ashes of the original Sibley Building, which served as the city’s first department store and burned down in 1906. It has remained an architectural fixture ever since and was admitted to National Register of Historic Places in 1984. The lower levels serve as retail space and help to anchor Rochester’s current downtown revitalization. Its public areas recently benefited from a sound system overhaul that centered on processing,… View this post

    St. Paul Evangelical Lutheran Church in Hampton, Iowa, was dealing with a problem familiar to many churches: their existing sound system was simply not adequate. The layout of the church’s sanctuary did the system no favors, with a tall ceiling and lots of glass causing any number of reverberations, making speech intelligibility and clear music nearly impossible. Several attempts were made to improve the system’s performance, but these tries amounted to little more than “band-aids,” according to Mark Carey, President/Owner… View this post
