For the 900-seat facility’s audio system, dB Audio presidentMike Hedden chose the SPL-triktrap speakers from Sound PhysicsLabs.

"In a big, live, multi-purpose room like this one, there's a bigchallenge in maintaining pattern control and getting as low a frequencyas possible on the seats without exciting the walls andceilings,” Hedden says. “You can't put stadium-sized hornsin there. You need something smaller, while still maintaining thenecessary pattern control.

"With the triks' four 8-inch direct radiating low-frequency drivers,four 5-inch mid-range drivers, and a one-inch high frequency driver,and the contribution of the two SPL-runts, we were able to put thesound right on the audience, maintaining intelligibility down to a lowfrequency."

Two clustered triktraps were suspended from the ceiling 30 feet overthe middle of the platform. To that cluster's left and right, dB Audiopersonnel installed SPL-Runt speakers as lateral fills that werelocalized back to the center with the help of a Shure P4800 signalprocessor.

The front of the stage features two BASS 118 subwoofers from BelisleAcoustics. In addition, one 2-way passive, full-range loudspeaker wasemployed, as were four Yamaha floor monitors. Other key equipmentincluded two Crown CTS2000 and two CTS3000 amplifiers, a Yamaha O1V96-CA digital mixing console, a Yamaha AD 824 mic preamp and aselection of Sennheiser microphones.
