The Spruce Peak Performing Arts Center, a 420-seat, 13,000-square-foot performance hall in Stowe, Vt., hosts a variety of music, dance and theater performances, as well as lecture and video presentations, and cinema screenings. Acentech (Boston) designed the A/V systems and acoustics of the space, which is particularly well-suited to unamplified and lightly amplified music gigs. The acoustic design includes noise control for mechanical systems, resulting in a very quiet room (NC-20) with minimal reverberation (1.3 seconds). Equipment installed includes a Soundcraft Si1 digital console, full-range Renkus-Heinz loudspeakers and subs at the proscenium.
