Walking through Madison Square Park this past summer, you would have heard the sounds from concert series “The Oval Lawn Series.” The New York branch consulting firm SIA Acoustics designs and implements the portable P.A. system each year. The audio crew comprises SIA’s Adam Shulman, Gino Pellicano and Chris Greco. The system employs two Danley SH-96 full-range boxes in a stereo configuration, with two SM-60F compact molded horns for the audience areas on the sides of the stage. Four Danley DBH-218 subwoofers, arranged in an “expanded cardioid” configuration, cover the 270-degree audience while providing substantial attenuation onstage. On the 12x24-foot stage, eight Danley SH-LPM monitors provide volume and clarity for the musicians. A Danley DSLP48 processor conditions the input from an Avid Profile and the output to a rack of Lab.gruppen (house) and Yamaha (stage) amplifiers.
