Good Data In, Great Sound Out

Institution Univers Chretien d’HaitiThe Institution Univers Chretien d’Haiti is a long way from the offices of Polar Focus, a professional audio rigging design and manufacturing company in western Massachusetts, and from Truthseeker Productions, an audio installation contractor, of Columbus, Ohio. But that was not an obstacle to installing a new sound reinforcement system in the school auditorium at the Institution Univers. Preschool, kindergarten, primary and secondary, as well as adult vocational education, are offered at the Institution. In this photograph of graduation ceremonies you can see two EAW MK2364WP speakers, neatly attached to a steel beam with chain slings going to Polar Focus ZB-20-300-B universal audio rigging bumpers, which provide adjustable pan (left to right) control. Between the Zbeams and the MK speakers are the Polar Focus Tilt Cable Kits, which provide adjustable tilt control. Weatherproof speakers were chosen because, although the space is enclosed, ventilation is provided through a gap between the roof and the top of the walls. So, using weatherproof speakers is a wise precaution against the normal heat and humidity of this beautiful tropical setting. more
