NORTHRIDGE, California – In the first fixed installation of HARMAN’s JBL VERTEC® subcompact line arrays in Western Australia, Perth-based Vizcom Technologies recently integrated a VERTEC subcompact line array system at the 575-seat Heath Ledger Theatre in Perth. The Heath Ledger Theatre is part of the Theatre Centre of Western Australia, one of the defining architectural landmarks in Perth. The VERTEC system was sold through Jands, HARMAN’s Australian distributor.

The Heath Ledger Theatre is a traditional proscenium arch stage, measuring 12m wide and 9m high. The proscenium opening can be minimized with a false proscenium and borders. The stage measures 25m from wall-to-wall and 18m from the back wall to the front edge of the forestage. There are also additional wing spaces backstage due mostly to the lack of any manual flying system at the stage deck level.

The Heath Ledger Theatre’s main left/right FOH speaker arrays comprise the new JBL VERTEC VT4886 subcompact line arrays, complemented by JBL VT4883 subcompact arrayable subwoofers on each side.

“These VERTEC line arrays were chosen over the system that was originally specified as in many ways, JBL out-performed it,? said Graham Piper, Technical Manager at the State Theatre Centre. “This was also a more cost-effective solution. The new system has performed better than a lot of people had expected it to; in fact, everyone who has heard agrees that it was a good choice. There’s been nothing but a positive response to the JBL VERTEC system.?
