Courthouse Finds Yamaha CIS Series Just What The Judge Ordered

BUENA PARK, Calif.—The Stone Harbor Municipal Courthouse located in Stone Harbor, New Jersey handles everything from court appearances to council and zoning board meetings. The sleepy winter borough, but ever-popular summer beach resort’s municipal building consists of one 100-seat courtroom on the second floor of the Borough Building.

The courthouse recently upgraded the PA to a Yamaha Commercial Installation Solutions (CIS) system, thanks to the talents of ACIR Professional of Mays Landing, NJ. The municipal court’s new system is comprised of one Yamaha MTX5D processor, an EX18 rack mounted input extender, Dugan MY16 card, one XMV4140 amplifier, a wireless DCP4V4S-US, two VXS8 and four VXC8 ceiling speakers.

“The Yamaha CIS system is set up to accommodate zoning and mix minus engineering, states Bobby Harper, Vice President/Sales, ACIR Professional. These features are required to get the best tonal quality and gain before feedback on podium-type microphones.” Typically, the court clerk or deputy clerk would control the system. “Since there is only one courtroom handling all of Stone Harbor court appearances and town meetings, the Yamaha DCP4V4S handles the required presets to turn microphones on and off remotely.”

“The team from ACIR is nothing but professional, states Carrie Bosacco, CMR, Deputy Clerk/Deputy Registrar, Borough of Stone Harbor. They asked what we were looking for in a sound system and definitely delivered.  The system we had was lacking in several areas; it was distorted and if you sat in the back of the courtroom, you couldn’t hear a thing. With the new Yamaha CIS System, the quality of sound is unbelievable!”
