ROSWELL HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL FIELD COMES ALIVE WITH DANLEY GENESIS HORNS AND SUBS

Roswell_HS_StadiumROSWELL, NEW MEXICO: For too many years, football fans and supporters of Roswell Independent Schools in Roswell, New Mexico suffered the poor performance of small paging horns that squawked announcements no one could understand and that emitted music no one could feel. It was a sad, uninspiring, and yet not uncommon situation. When money finally became available to make improvements, the school hired local firm J&G Electric to oversee the project. Relatively new to the Pro Audio market, Mike McClain of J&G Electric sought, without bias, the very best sounding system for his client at the most reasonable price. A thorough search turned up Danley Sound Labs, and Roswell Schools now benefit from a pair of Danley GH-60 Genesis Horns for vivid full-range output and a pair of beefy Danley DBH-218 subwoofers for low-frequency support.

“The school gave J&G Electric free reign to choose the best audio system they could, given the constraints of the budget,” explained Noel Darby of DarbyReps (Denver, CO), who represents Danley in the Rocky Mountain Region and who consulted on the design. “They had heard great things about Danley – that Danley’s designs are uniquely efficient, natural sounding, and easy to work with. I’ve been selling loudspeakers for a long time, and I believe Tom Danley’s designs really are amazing. He’s not chasing the same old woofer/tweeter or line array concept.”

Roswell_HS_Scoreboard_SpeakersGiven that the existing light poles are all behind the seating, it didn’t make sense to use a distributed system. Instead, Darby suggested an end-fired system that would split the field down the middle and provide equal coverage to the home and visitor seating. A Xilica XP-2040 2×4 processor handles modest input conditioning and system EQ, and feeds two Danley DSLA 3.3k and two Danley DSLA 6.5k amplifiers. Those amplifiers in turn power two Danley Genesis GH-60 horns and two Danley DBH-218 subwoofers mounted above and behind the scoreboard. The Genesis Horns use Danley’s patent-pending Paraline acoustical technology to gradually attenuate output at lower angles so as to deliver even SPLs to all the seats, near and far.

The install proved to be the largest hurdle to overcome. “With the original site being built in 1968, and seeing numinous additions and upgrades, we had our hands full,” said McClain. Trenching was tedious in order to avoid underground utilities and unknown paths, so we were forced to dig slowly and carefully. When it was all said and done we had over 700 feet of trench at four feet deep. In order to avoid the necessity of repeating the arduous process at a later date a second “spare” conduit was installed. Dealing with the harsh desert heat cooling the equipment was also an issue. To avoid building a structure to hold the equipment, we used a self-contained climate controlled rack to house the amps and processors. Using the assistance of a local fabricator the forty-foot tall structure holding the loudspeakers was built. “After all the sweat and heavy lifting the system worked as designed and as promised.”

Deward Timothy of Utah’s Poll Sound came in for the final tuning, which, by all accounts, didn’t take very long given the natural sound of the GH-60s and the fact that they are true point-source devices. “The school district is amazed at how much output they’re getting,” said McClain. “The coaches are ecstatic! This is a huge leap up for them, and the system will serve them well for a long, long time to come.”

Community Upgrades the Fan Experience at Troy Fair

New Sound System Serves Troy Fair Events and High-School Sports

Billed as the “Largest Event in Bradford County”, the 139th Troy Fair opened July 21, 2014 with a new grandstands sound system provided by Gelnett and Associates of Northumberland, Pennsylvania and based on Community R Series loudspeakers.

The new system replaces a 1970s-era paging horn system that was inadequate for modern fair events and had prompted 2013’s tractor pull announcer to complain, “We’re not coming back unless you fix this!”

After interviewing several integrators, the Troy Fair board chose Gelnett and Associates to provide their new system. Gelnett President, Scott Gelnett reports that the fair board was very impressed during the on-site demo and knew this was the system for them.

The new system consists of two clusters of four Community R.5HPT loudspeakers covering the fans in the grandstands and three R2-52 loudspeakers covering the left, center and right field areas. The system is powered by DSP-equipped Crown amplifiers and features a Biamp 601 mixer and Tascam CD200i CD player with iPod input.

Gelnett provided an Audix headworn announcer’s mic and a handheld mic for a second announcer in the press booth. They also provided an Audix wireless headworn and a handheld wireless mic for use from the field. The press booth, which hangs below the grandstands roof, is difficult to access.

For this reason, Gelnett provided a remote volume control in a utility room below the grandstands for events with field announcements. However, Scott Gelnett says the microphones seldom need adjustment and he reports that he did “very little tweaking” on the R Series loudspeakers during system commissioning.

The fairgrounds are used for Troy High-School football, the Endless Mountain Maple Festival, and other sporting events as well as the yearly Troy Fair so the new grandstands sound system will benefit Troy audiences all year long. Gelnett and Associates has also updated other areas of the fairgrounds including exhibit halls and the cattle barn areas, and the small arena. Regarding the new grandstands system, Scott Gelnett thanks his staff of Gary Young, Project Manager; Keith Hummel, Installation Foreman; and David Shumaker, DSP Programmer and says “we’ve set a new standard in our area.”

HARMAN’s Crown and BSS Audio Are At Center Court In Wimbledon Audio System Upgrade

LONDON, England — It’s the world’s oldest and most prestigious tennis championship – Wimbledon, held at the All England Club In London since 1877. Although steeped in tradition, the facility takes a decidedly modern approach to its audio and communications network, evaluating and updating its installation every year. Prior to the 2014 tournament, Wimbledon-based systems contractor RG Jones Sound Engineering (www.rgjones.co.uk) knew that the scope of work would be much more involved than in the past. Because of building renovations, the Broadcast Center PA equipment room had to be completely relocated, and the system upgrade called for more audio inputs and outputs than the existing system provided.

Jon Berry, RG Jones Sales and Installation Director realized that HARMAN’s Crown DriveCore Install (DCi) Network amplifiers and BSS Audio BLU-160 signal processor made such a major undertaking a lot easier, because of their ability to be networked with the All England Club’s existing Soundweb London audio DSP system, which operates across the site in locations including the Centre Court clubhouse, the North courts, the Gate 3 turnstiles building and other areas. RG Jones installed a total of 24 Crown DCi 4|300N and DCi 4|600N four-channel amplifiers in the new PA room, as well as two BSS Audio BLU-160 processors. All Crown and BSS Audio products were supplied by UK HARMAN distributor Sound Technology, Ltd.

Crown’s DCi Network amplifiers utilize exclusive DriveCore amplifier technology, which enables powerful, energy-efficient operation from an amplifier just 2U rack spaces high. The ampifiers are compatible with HARMAN’s HiQnet Audio Architect™ system setup and control software.

The amplifiers receive audio from the BSS BLU-160 processors via BLU link, a low-latency 256-channel fault-tolerant bus, which provides the required channel count and a cost-effective hardware solution that can be implemented over long distances.

“Having to implement such a major overhaul of the system proved to be a blessing in disguise, as the relocation of the PA room confirmed our belief that network-compatible amplifiers were the way forward,” said Berry. “The ability to network the amplifiers alongside the existing Soundweb London system has proven to be extremely useful. Having in-depth, instantaneous monitoring of the amplifiers gives us a degree of control that was simply unavailable before.” He also noted that the amplifiers’ Ethernet connectivity significantly reduced the amount of analog cabling that would have otherwise been necessary.

Berry has been equally impressed with the DCi Network amplifiers’ performance. Before starting the All England Club project RG Jones undertook rigorous sonic testing at their workshop to check that the amplifiers would integrate with the existing system. “While conducting these evaluations we realized that the depth and functionality of the amps’ DSP features were a major advantage in tailoring their performance to the speakers, the system and the venue,” Berry added.

For Berry and his team, the acid test was going from the workbench to configuring the installation for the Centre Court clubhouse. “The setup and commissioning of the clubhouse system was the most complex part of the install, and in fact we found the process to be intuitive, easier than we thought it would be – and extremely effective. The flexibility, control capabilities and the sound quality are far better than we could have hoped for and we will certainly be specifying the Crown DCi amps and BSS Audio components for future projects.”

DL Sound & Lighting Productions Gives Butchart Gardens Great Sounds for the Summer with HARMAN’s JBL VTX Line Arrays and Crown I-Tech HD Amplifiers

IMG_2366VICTORIA, Canada — Providing a sound reinforcement system to accommodate the growing audiences for The Butchart Gardens’ “Summer at the Gardens” concert series, DL Sound & Lighting Productions of Victoria has supplied HARMAN’s JBL VTX V20 line array loudspeakers and Crown I-Tech 4x3500HD amplifiers for two months of live performances.

Located near Victoria on Vancouver Island, The Butchart Gardens is a collection of floral gardens that receives almost a million visitors each year. For the past 12 years, DL Sound has provided the sound reinforcement system for The Butchart Gardens’ famed “Summer at the Gardens” series. This year’s performers included world-famous acts including Colin James and Pink Martini, with performances scheduled every night from June 15 to August 30.

“This year, The Butchart Gardens wanted to up the ante as far as the draw of its performing artists went, so they also needed an audio system that would meets the needs of larger crowds,” said Doug Lyngard, President of DL Sound. “They also wanted to be able to fly the PA system instead of ground-stacking, which they have done in the past.”

“The venue lends itself to great presentation for an artist, and this is a great venue for acts coming through the Victoria area,” said Paul Gatien, Live Sound Engineer for The Butchart Gardens. “For Colin James, we had an audience of 5,000 people, which was one of our largest events.”

The system at The Butchart Gardens includes a left-right hang of six V20 line array loudspeakers per side, powered with Crown I-Tech 4x3500HD amplifiers. Gatien also uses JBL HiQnet Performance Manager™ to monitor and control the system.

“I haven’t had any training on Performance Manager, so I’ve been figuring it out as we go, but it’s so intuitive that it’s been working great, and we’re doing really well with it,” Gatien noted.

When looking for a loudspeaker system for the summer season at The Butchart Gardens, Lyngard was attracted to the V20 for multiple reasons. “I really liked the sound of the V20, and the JBL name carries a solid reputation, so that also played a big factor,” he said. “Other factors like the easy rigging were important, as well as how easily the loudspeakers work with the Crown amplifiers and Performance Manager.”

“We’re really happy with the system,” Gatien added. “We do everything from symphony performances and jazz to classic rock and blues, and the VTX loudspeakers and Crown I-Tech HD amplifiers handle it all very well.”

While Summer at the Gardens provided the impetus for DL Sound to purchase the JBL VTX system, the company has big plans for it once the summer is over. “The V20 and I-Tech 4x3500HD raise our ability to compete for larger projects,” Lyngard said. “Now we’ll be able to provide sound for all the venues on Vancouver Island and in the Vancouver area and be able to fill most riders as well.”

3G Productions Supports Juan Gabriel With Martin Audio MLA

When Mexican singer/songwriter Juan Gabriel had to interrupt his U.S. “Volver 2014” tour for two weeks due to illness, his engineering staff prevailed upon 3G Productions to switch over to a Martin Audio MLA system for the remaining arena dates.

As 3G’s System Engineer Manny Perez describes the changeover, “The other system was working just fine, but Juan’s FOH Engineer Rodrigo Lopez had attended an MLA demo in Mexico and was really interested to see how it would perform.”

Gabriel, an internationally acclaimed Latin American musician who’s sold over 100 million albums, resumed the second leg of his sold-out tour at Miami’s American Airlines Arena, which presented some challenges of its own.

According to Perez, “As soon as I walked into the arena, their staff expressed concerns that they’d been having trouble covering the top rows of the nosebleed section for the last few shows and had to provide refunds. We assured them that we had it covered and the show would sound great everywhere. Then we put the MLA system up and tuned it really quickly even though it was a big rig designed to provide 270-degree coverage. Rodrigo, the band’s music consultant and I all walked the room from top to bottom and front to back, and there were absolutely no problems in terms of coverage and balanced sound.”

The 270-degree system for American Airlines Arena consisted of a main hang with 32 MLA and 4 MLD; side hangs with 36 MLA Compacts; a third hang with 24 MLA Compacts; 10 ground-stacked MLX subs, and 4 DD12s on the front of the stage for front-fill to the first six rows.

Describing the system in greater detail Manny points out, “The ratio of MLX to the rest of the system seems a bit light, but Rodrigo didn’t want a bass-heavy mix for the show because of all the acoustic instruments and high end frequencies. Also, we were using the new two-way DD12 powered speakers from Martin Audio for the first time and they’re really good. I would usually have to do a lot of cleaning up with EQ because they’re positioned so close to the subs, but they didn’t need a thing. The DD12s throw further than we needed them to and were more than perfect for what they had to do.”

The rest of the system consists of SSL and Avid Profile consoles for FOH and monitors, LM44 Lake processing, Smaart 7 software, Shure UFH-RD wireless and DPA microphones.

Asked about mixing on MLA, Rodrigo Lopez responds, “For me, it’s definitely the best speaker out there with more control of the sound and how it projects to the audience. The system provides the same amount of sound pressure and coverage from the front seat to the back with correct phasing throughout the arena.

“It’s been perfect for the tour,” Lopez continues. “The audience hears exactly what I’m getting out of the console. It’s challenging with Juan Gabriel because he’s playing with a lot of Mariachi and there are a lot of acoustic instruments that don’t have as much power. But with MLA, the audience can hear all of those instruments clearly, as if the musicians are playing right in front of them.”

Summing up, Perez adds, “I like the MLA’s clarity and imaging which is amazing when you pan the percussion and keyboards left to right. The speakers sound 30 feet wide where the sound moves across the space. The high end and high mids for vocals and snares are so clear; you can really hear the sizzle of the snare bottoms and high hats.

“A lot of people keep telling me how MLA is a really smooth, natural-sounding system that’s very satisfying to the ear. The staff and production crew, Juan’s musicians and his music consultant are stoked. Everybody really likes it which has been a real plus for the tour.”

ICONYX Saves The Day At St. Thomas the Apostle Catholic Church

Long Beach, MS – September 2014… Located steps from the sand on Mississippi’s scenic Gulf Coast, St. Thomas the Apostle Catholic Church has a rich association with the city and community. Its beachfront location also boasts something of an ominous history; on August 29, 2005, the eye of Hurricane Katrina passed just west of the church, bringing 20 foot swells, rendering the main sanctuary, and its sound system, unusable.

As part of St. Thomas’ restoration, the church reached out to Magnolia Music to design a new sound system. After an analysis of the room, Magnolia’s Tony Strong and Rain Jaudon recommended Renkus-Heniz ICONYX IC24-R-II digitally steerable line array loudspeaker systems.

“It was apparent to me that, with the aesthetics of the room and the high vaulted and beautiful wood ceiling, a traditional speaker approach would not be in keeping with the design,” said Strong. “A steerable array system using the Renkus-Heinz IC24Rs was the perfect solution.”

While all agreed on the steerable array, budget conscious church officials opted to look for ways to cut costs. “Someone at the diocese decided to take the preliminary designs and put them out to bid,” said Jaudon. “After some value engineering was done, the project was awarded to another integrator, and the new design called for a lower priced, digitally steerable array.”

The budget system was mounted 12 feet above the floor, but ultimately did not deliver the intelligible, high quality audio that was promised. Next, a new, more powerful point source line array system was installed, which also proved unsatisfactory. “With the second system, the folks right in front of the arrays were being blown away with sound and intelligibility was poor in the rear of the room,” said Strong.

Church officials once again reached out to Strong and Jaudin, and the consultants stood firm in their recommendation of the IC24Rs. “We demoed the IC24, and it was clear that we could cover the congregation evenly and consistently with the IC24Rs,” said Strong. “Just to show the accuracy of the steering, I purposefully aimed the beam over the first couple of pews to show the comparison to the passive line arrays installed.”

The speakers were mounted down-mic, just behind the pulpit and lectern – a placement that initially raised concerns about feedback from church officials. “All agreed that it was a better location aesthetically,” said Jaudon. “However, there was concern about the mounting location being upstage from the primary microphones. I assured them that, based on our experience with the ICONYX arrays, we would be able to steer the main lobes over the microphones successfully, and that turned out to be the case.”

Ultimately, the ICONYX system outperformed the previous two systems, proving that not all array systems are created equal, and that compromising quality to save costs can end up costing more in the long run.

“The bottom line of the story is that, with the ICONYX arrays, we selected the right tool for the job,” said Strong. “Someone tried to value engineer and save the church money by purchasing two different systems that did not perform. After six years and thousands spent on other systems, they purchased the right system for the job – the IC24Rs. Now, the ministers are free to do what they do best – minister – without having to deal with complaints about the sound system.”

Mackie DLM Helps Austin-Bergstrom International Airport Keep Travelers Entertained

 Austin, TX – October 2014… Widely regarded as “The Live Music Capital of the World,” Austin’s buzzing local scene is heightened by the notoriety of festivals like South By Southwest, and popular shows like “Austin City Limits.”

Austin boasts literally hundreds of live music venues, but one stands out as particularly unique. With more than 10 million people passing through its gates every year, Austin-Bergstrom International Airport is often the first and last live music venue visitors to the city see and hear. The audio is powered by a Mackie DLM system installed at the Main Terminal’s Asleep At the Wheel Stage at the Ray Benson Roadhouse.

“There has been music here in the airport since it opened 15 years ago,” explains Michael Pennock, who oversees the music and audio at Austin-Bergstrom Airport. “We have six venues and 23 shows a week. The Ray Benson Roadhouse is our busiest venue.”

The Roadhouse’s Asleep At the Wheel Stage features two Mackie DLM12 12-inch full-range powered loudspeakers, along with four DLM12s for stage monitoring. The entire system is connected to a Mackie DL1608 16-channel digital live sound mixer with iPad control.

The Mackie DLM12 delivers 2,000 Watts of Class D amplification, powering a custom-designed 12-inch woofer and 1.75″ HF compression driver. As Pennock points out, the extra power translates into better performance without having to push the system too hard.

 “Initially, we had other speakers installed on a truss above the stage, and there was a lot more sound spilling over to the gates,” said Pennock. “With the DLM12s, we’re able to focus the sound and get better coverage with virtually no bleed. It’s been a great improvement and we get a lot of compliments from the performers on the sound.”

As Pennock observes, one of the major challenges in operating a live music venue in the middle of a busy airport is maintaining control over the sound to ensure the music does not overpower the airport’s paging system. The ability to control the 16-channel DL1608 via iPad empowered the airport’s audio crew to easily stay on top of the challenge.

“On either side of the Ray Benson Roadhouse, there are two Southwest airline gates,” says Pennock. “With the DL1608s remote iPad control, we can actually walk over to the gates while the band is playing, check volume levels with the airline personnel, and adjust from the iPad on the spot if needed.”

The DL1608 six aux sends handle more than enough monitor mixes, and support for up to 10 wireless iPad connections makes it easy for both crew and performers to dial in exactly what they need.

Besides just being a great sounding mixer, Pennock says the DL1608’s iPad integration has brought other benefits as well. “Since moving to iPad control, we not only have better communication with the airlines, we’ve got a better sounding mix, and we’re able to get just a little bit louder too. The amount of control the DLM loudspeakers and DL1608 mixer provides is an absolute blessing in this kind of application.”
