AKG Microphones At Heart Of New System For Philadelphia’s Caplan Center

A primary goal was linking two theaters with audio, video, data, fiber and wireless systems

Metropolitan Acoustics of Philadelphia, PA, recently chose AKG wired and wireless microphones in a sound system project at the Ellen and Ronald Caplan Center at the University of the Arts, also located in Philadelphia.

The system is the focus of two side-by-side theaters that cater to students learning everything from performance arts to multimedia presentations.

The university had a goal of linking the two theaters with audio, video, data, fiber and wireless systems so that the equipment could be shared or work independently.

An array of AKG equipment for the project includes four C5 handheld condenser microphones, four AKG D5 vocal microphones, four C1000S and four C518M instrument condensers, and 10 wireless microphone systems working with a variety of handheld and body pack transmitters.

In addition to the AKG components, the theater also utilizes two Soundcraft Vi4 digital consoles as well as two BSS Soundweb Blu-160 and one Blu-120 processors.
