Bose® Professional Systems Brings Framingham, Massachusetts’ Historic Nevins Hall the Great Sound It Had Waited Decades For

1930s-era venue had always presented a challenge for clear, intelligible sound, until Bose® RoomMatch® and PowerMatch® products were installed

Framingham, Massachusetts, July 24, 2013 – Historic Nevins Hall, located in the Memorial Building in downtown Framingham, Massachusetts, was the site for many a big-band concert in the 1930s and 40s, as well as classical concerts, a visit from President Clinton in 1994, and various corporate shows, holiday parties and other events over the course of more than 80 years. What it never managed to achieve, however, was quality sound befitting its wide range of applications. Charles Crane, Sales Engineer with Adtech Systems, an AV systems integrator in nearby Sudbury, says while the venue’s management had tried several times over the decades to add sound systems, none had ever been able to address the hall’s reverberance and architectural nuances. That is, until Adtech brought in RoomMatch® loudspeakers and PowerMatch® amplifiers from Bose® Professional Systems Division. In mid-March, Adtech hung two Bose RoomMatch arrays, each consisting of (in ascending order) two RM12020’s, one RM9020, one RM7010 and one RM5505 loudspeaker, as well as an RMS215 subwoofer at the top of the array. These, along with under-balcony fill speakers, are powered by six Bose PowerMatch PM8500N amplifiers and use a Bose ControlSpace® ESP-88 DSP controller to comprehensively cover Nevins Hall’s 1,700 seats. For the first time, this venerable venue has full-range, articulate, intelligible sound that works for speech and music.

Crane explains that the new system needed to both address the space’s acoustical issues and look forward, as the venue’s management wants the facility to continue to appeal to a wide range of customers, including concert promoters. He states, “The room was always challenging in terms of its acoustics; it took a custom engineered sound system to deal with it, and that was the Bose RoomMatch and PowerMatch system,” he says. “It’s the only solution that could have its arrays perfectly match the coverage patterns needed for this room. What they have now is what I’d call a ‘rider-friendly’ sound system – it’s one that touring music artists will find meets their needs and specifications. The system has made for a very happy customer.”
