Philadelphia, PA––Since opening in 2010, SugarHouse Casino has been constantly expanding based on the popularity of its table games that include a mix of blackjack, craps, roulette, Mini Baccarat, Pai Gow poker and three-card poker.

Interviewed during a recent expansion necessitating a 2,200 square-foot increase to SugarHouse that expanded the overall gaming floor from 51,017 square feet to 53,217 square feet, Wendy Hamilton, general manager, said, “The Philly market is speaking to us, and we’re listening.

Chestnut Hill, PA––Built on a tract of land purchased in 1856, the elegant and venerable St. Paul’s Episcopal church was built in 1929 on the foundation of the second building.

The ceiling of St. Paul’s is built like a ship, symbolic of the Ark and the boat of the fishermen but not the ideal setting for audio reproduction. The Rev. Cliff Cutler retained Spinnaker-Multimedia Solutions to study the room acoustics and design a compatible audio system. The original systems consisted of massive stadium speakers with overhead microphones for speech and choir reproduction.

“We were retained to correct poor sound distribution and speech intelligibility problems. Parishioners seated in the rear couldn’t understand the spoken word or the choir very well,? says Fenicia Redman, VP Project Development at Spinnaker.

“So we did what we always do,? relates Redman, “modeled the space. There was no way we were going to more

Apex multi-purpose venue, Bury St Edmunds, England

The new £18.5m apex multi-purpose venue in Bury St Edmunds, owned and operated by St Edmundsbury Borough Council, is now equipped with a Martin Audio W8LM Mini Line Array system as part of its permanent technical infrastructure.

After the installation was completed last year by Northern Light, technical manager Tim Carr noticed that with an increasing number of amplified rock and folk concerts starting to appear on the upcoming program of events, a conventional Left/Right proscenium line array hang was required to bolster the existing speech system.

Several sound systems were proposed as potential solutions, but Carr already had prior experience with Martin Audio’s W8LM Mini Line Array, brought in by locally based W1 Productions when they were sponsoring a local band night. Which explains why Tim was soon talking to W1’s Stuart Turvill about a permanent install.

Since the venue was designed around two balcony more
