A meeting space served by a new sound system driven by Ashly Audio components at the former Titan II Nuclear Missile Complex in Arkansas.

A defunct Titan II Nuclear Missile Complex north of Little Rock, AR purchased by G.T. Hill in 2010 has been steadily renovated into a premier rental space that now also has a flexible sound system powered by the Ashly Audio amplification platform.

“I saw the site was available and thought it would be really cool to turn it into a fully livable home,” said Hill, who works in the technology field but is quick to note the renovation of a government missile silo isn’t within the remit of his job description. “I grew up building things and working in a machine shop. I’m interested in design, and I’m a tech guy. That said, turning this into something livable was definitely a first-of-its-kind project for me.”

After a decade of investing “money, pain, excitement, time (and) tears” into the project, Hill opened a luxury venue for those seeking a unique vacation spot or unforgettable event location. “It became a legitimate, fully livable home in December 2020,” Hill said. “During the renovations I determined this could probably be run as a business. We could host events here or offer overnight stays. With COVID, some of that has been put on hold, but we do plan to still have corporate events here as it is safe to do so.”

Hill wanted a quality sound system To facilitate future corporate events, he implemented a quality sound system that utilizes four Ashly switch-mode power supply amplifiers – two KLR2000s and two KLR4000s – that are suited for a range of sound reinforcement applications. The installation also uses an Ashly Protēa ne24.24m DSP matrix processor, which offers up to 24-channels of audio matrixing and processing, enabling the system to be zoned throughout the missile complex and provides routing of any input to any output in the facility.

“We actually installed the Ashly gear in here early because we all love music,” Hill says. ”It was in there before the bathrooms, even. And from the time we’ve spent with it, we’ve been incredibly impressed. The launch control center is about 3,000 square feet, and with the Ashly system it feels like you could have an entire club in there.”
