Sound Image and HARMAN’s JBL Loudspeakers Revitalize Sound at Historic San Diego Civic Theatre

Sound Image upgraded the audio system at the San Diego Civic Theatre with JBL PD Series loudspeakers.

NORTHRIDGE, California – Sound Image, one of the world’s largest and most experienced sound design engineering companies, recently completed a sound system renovation at the San Diego Civic Theatre, which in its 45-year history, has hosted some of the world’s greatest talents, shows and musicals. HARMAN’s JBL loudspeakers, along with Crown amplifiers and BSS processors, are part of the major retrofit at the city-owned, 2,967-seat performance venue.

The new audio system, designed by WRL Sound Consultants, features two JBL PD5322/95 full-range loudspeakers and four JBL PD5322/64 full-range loudspeakers comprising the center cluster, supplemented by four JBL ASB6128 subwoofers. An additional four JBL PD5212/95 loudspeakers serve as delay fills for loge and balcony coverage.

“There was an outdated system in the Civic Theatre before we came in,” said Sound Image Project Manager, Mike Martin. “As far as retrofits go, it’s always a challenge to install modern equipment with the existing structure, especially with the last update occurring more than 30 years ago. Projects like this are always a great test of an installer’s mettle.”

To swap out the older system for the new one, an intricate pulley system was used to bring each piece down and their replacements up, with care to avoid disturbing the fragile space. The pulley system was originally installed during the 1990’s to set up the previous loudspeaker system.

“The new JBL loudspeaker system offers a completely improved level of sound quality,” Martin continued. “This cutting-edge performance space required top-notch equipment to support the dramatic vocal and musical performances, and we were able to deliver that with JBL.”
