The Shalleck Collaborative’s new sound system design for California’s San Jose Civic Auditorium includes JBL VERTEC, VP and VRX Series loudspeakers.

NORTHRIDGE, California – To replace an outdated system, San Francisco, California-based The Shalleck Collaborative, Inc. recently designed a HARMAN audio reinforcement system for the San Jose Civic Auditorium in northern California. Local AV contractor BBI Engineering provided installation services. Until the recent $13 million renovation, the city-owned hall relied on expensive outside equipment rentals to service shows and special events. Decision makers now visualize a more profitable way to generate income with its own PA system throughout the 3,001-seat arena.

The Shalleck Collaborative focused its efforts on filling the 15,000-square-foot area of the venue as well as the balcony above. Installed at the main stage in the San Jose Civic Auditorium are 16 JBL VERTEC® VT4888 midsize line array elements, hung eight to each side of the stage, with eight VT4880A fullsize arrayable subwoofers, four to each side, with 10 VP7212 loudspeakers for side fill and four VRX932LAP loudspeakers for front fill. The system includes BSS Soundweb BLU-120 and 160 processing with a Soundcraft Vi6 digital console.

Since the audio system installation, the San Jose Civic Auditorium has hosted concerts by Crosby, Stills and Nash, Steely Dan and productions of “Disney On Ice,? with more scheduled for the 2011 season and beyond.

Ian Hunter, senior consultant for The Shalleck Collaborative, faced the challenge of modernizing and retrofitting the Auditorium while having a minimum impact on the historic landmark’s original structure. The building is recognized as a designated City Landmark, so it was important that historical workers and engineers worked in collaboration to establish rigging points in the ceiling without compromising the delicate structure.

“The HARMAN equipment brings a big sound to this venue that supports all events from local plays to big-name bands,? stated Hunter. “The entire installation turned out very nicely and has received great reviews from city administrators, fans and artists themselves. We are happy that our relationship with the Civic Auditorium put us in a position to design and install a system that allows the venue to attract great performances and continue providing great service to San Jose.?
