Madison Square Garden recently installed EAW’s MQV Series loudspeakers at the giant multipurpose arena, part of the Garden’s first major sound system upgrade in almost a decade. Wrightson Johnson Haddon & Williams (WJHW) of Dallas was the system design consultant, and SPL Integrated Solutions of Columbia, Md., was the contractor. The new system includes eight primary speaker clusters arranged in a circle. Each cluster includes a single MQV1366 full-range, three-way loudspeaker, aimed almost straight down to cover main-level seating, and a single MQV2364 loudspeaker that extends coverage to the mid-seating levels. A distributed delay ring comprised of single MQV1366 full-range units covers the upper-most seating levels.
