The 800-seat Meng Concert Hall at the new Performing Arts Center at California State University, Fullerton, features a high-end sound reinforcement system designed by Multi-Media Consulting Inc. (MMC, www.multi-mediaconsulting.com) of Los Angeles that incorporates EAW AX Series loudspeakers and SB Series subwoofers.
MMC founding principal Rick Wells took the lead role in the system design process for Meng Concert Hall, specifying three sets of dual EAW AX366 loudspeakers to provide full-range coverage throughout the room. The loudspeakers are flown in a "one above the other" configuration at carefully selected positions above the front edge of the room's large stage, with each set joined by a single EAW SBX200 subwoofer. All loudspeaker cabinets are painted a custom color selected to blend in with the aesthetics of the space.
Wells, whose firm provides full-service media systems design and consulting, selected AX Series loudspeakers for this project following an extensive demo process that included numerous competitive loudspeaker models. MMC also supplied system designs for several other live performance spaces housed within the venue.
