HARMAN’s JBL Professional Introduces CBT 50LA-LS Line Array Column Loudspeaker with EN54-24 Certification

AMSTERDAM, The Netherlands – HARMAN’s JBL Professional today introduced its new CBT 50LA-LS line array column loudspeaker that comes with full EN54-24 certification. EN54-24 is the EU standard for loudspeakers intended for use in voice announce and fire alarm systems. The CBT 50LA-LS is an addition to the popular CBT Series (Constant Beamwidth Technology™) that has been developed exclusively for the European installation market.

The CBT 50LA-LS is a very compact 50 cm high column that utilizes a straight line of eight 2-inch drivers. It contains low-saturation transformers, so it can be used on 70V/100V distributed speaker lines or as low impedance speakers.

JBL’s CBT Series column loudspeakers were the first loudspeakers to incorporate JBL’s newly introduced and patented Constant Beamwidth Technology, using passive beam-forming components to deliver a narrow vertical beamwidth and constant directivity coverage from a passive column, resulting in high intelligibility in difficult acoustical venues and consistent frequency response at every listener location.

In addition, the CBT speakers provide Dynamic SonicGuard overload protection circuitry, which reduces distortion at high drive levels, along with user variable voicing which allows for selecting a flat frequency response or a midrange presence peak for especially clear speech intelligibility.

HARMAN designs, manufactures, and markets a wide range of infotainment and audio solutions for the automotive, consumer, and professional markets. It is a recognized world leader across its customer segments with premium brands including AKG®, Harman Kardon®, Infinity®, JBL®, Lexicon®, and Mark Levinson® and leading-edge connectivity, safety and audio technologies. The Company is admired by audiophiles across multiple generations and supports leading professional entertainers and the venues where they perform. More than 25 million automobiles on the road today are equipped with HARMAN audio and infotainment systems. HARMAN has a workforce of 14,800 people across the Americas, Europe, and Asia and reported sales of $4.7 billion for the last twelve months ended December 31, 2013.

HARMAN’s JBL Professional Adds to Legendary PD Series Loudspeakers with PD6000 Series

AMSTERDAM, The Netherlands – At ISE 2014, HARMAN’s JBL Professional is announcing a cost-effective addition to its hugely popular Precision Directivity Series product line. The PD6000 Series is designed for midsize to large venues requiring excellent pattern control, high output capability, configurable either individually or in array applications. The PD6000 models complement the larger PD700 mid-high systems with more compact size and greater affordability, while the PD6000’s higher SPL capability and larger waveguides supplement the midsize and compact AE Series systems. The PD6000 Series is ideal for stadiums, arenas, performing arts facilities, live theaters, auditoriums, houses of worship, and dance clubs.

The PD6000 Series consists of 14 models, which include four 3-way full-range systems, four 12-inch 2-way systems, four 2-way mid-high systems and two low-frequency models. Coverage patterns include the original 40 x 30, 60 x 40, and 90 x 50. With the introduction of the PD6000 Series, an additional coverage pattern of 60 x 60 is now available. New to the PD Series are injection-molded rotatable waveguides which allowed JBL to provide a more cost-effective loudspeaker lineup. The mid-frequency 24 x 24-inch PT™ (Progressive Transition) waveguides provide excellent pattern control along with low distortion and extremely natural sound character. This is also the case with the 12 x 12-inch high-frequency PT waveguides. These rotatable waveguides provide the system designer the flexibility to utilize PD6000 models in either horizontal or vertical orientations.

In addition to the injection-molded waveguides and the new 60 x 60 coverage pattern, all compression drivers were upgraded to include JBL’s newest driver technologies, including the 2432H and 2453H. The PD6000 Series utilizes the CMCD-82H Cone Midrange Compression Driver (CMCD™). The CMCD-82H features JBL’s patented Differential Drive™ technology. All low-frequency drivers feature JBL VGC™ Vented Gap Cooling technology.

“These changes have provided JBL the opportunity to bring the PD6000 Series loudspeakers to market at a more competitive price point,” said Jon Sager, Senior Manager, Installed Sound, JBL Professional. “We are extremely sensitive to the needs of our customers and are pleased be able to provide system designers with new technologies, additional coverage pattern, at a more affordable cost.”

All of these high-power, compact PD6000 systems are voiced similarly to JBL’s PD700 and AE Series loudspeakers for commonality of sound character throughout an installation. All models are available in white (-WH) as well as WRC and WRX weather-resistant versions for installation in moderate to extreme outdoor environments. More information on the PD6000 Series can be found on the JBL Professional website: www.jbpro.com.

The CSA amplifiers incorporate HARMAN’s proprietary DriveCore amplifier IC, which combines what would be hundreds of conventional parts into a single chip smaller than a dime. DriveCore offers significantly reduced power consumption, size and weight while delivering outstanding sound quality. All CSA amps are just 1U rack space high and a half-rack wide. All models can operate into 8 ohm and 4 ohm loads and can be used with 70V and 100V distributed audio systems without the need for a separate transformer. A single amp channel (or 1 channel amplifier) can easily drive multiple speakers without the need for complex wiring and the amplifiers’ distributed audio capability simplifies adding volume controls to single- or multiple- speaker zones. All feature a universal power supply for international use and accept an Ethernet control cable for use with the JBL CSR-V wall-mount volume control.

JBL Commercial’s CSM mixers are perfect for background music, paging, security and other uses. Like the CSA amplifiers, the CSM models are simple to set up and use, with a minimum of front panel controls and illuminated rings around the knobs for easy visibility. All the mixers provide channel, master volume and independent bass and treble controls. The rear panel offers RCA inputs and Euro-block-type mic/line input and output connectors. All models feature priority muting, VOX ducking and mic phantom power and can be used with JBL’s CSR-V wall controller.

JBL Commercial components are manufactured under HARMAN JBL’s GreenEdge initiative, for increased energy efficiency and lighter weight while delivering top-quality performance. CSA amps and CSM mixers conform to lead-free RoHS standards, use recycled copper, aluminum and steel from factory processes and benefit from additional environmentally conscious manufacturing procedures.

WASHINGTON STATE UNIVERSITY THUNDERS WITH DANLEY JERICHO HORNS

PULLMAN, WASHINGTON – JANUARY 2014: The Cougars football team of Washington State University plays all of their home games in 33,500-seat Martin Stadium. Although on the smaller side among its Pac-12 peers, the stadium has more than enough seats for every resident of Pullman, Washington (the university’s home), and loyal alumni and visiting fans easily make up the difference, filling the stands to near capacity on game day. Recent additions to the stadium necessitated relocating the scoreboard to the opposite end zone, and that in turn inspired a full upgrade to Martin Stadium’s sound reinforcement system. Three Danley Sound Labs J3-64 Jericho Horns, two J4-31 Jericho Horns, and four TH-812 “Rock Monster” subwoofers now fill Martin Stadium with glorious, high-fidelity sound.

Washington State University called in Anthony James Partners of Richmond, Virginia to design the sound system. “It was a pretty straightforward situation,” said Lee Vaught, senior audio engineer at AJP. “Martin Stadium is a bowl with almost no overhang. A distributed system wasn’t an option. We had to go with an end-fired system, and the new scoreboard was the obvious place to put it. The only question was exactly what boxes to use. This is my first full Danley installation, and the their design provided the necessary coverage with vastly fewer boxes than I would have used with conventional technology.”

Three Danley J3-64 Jericho Horns provide the majority of the full-range coverage at Martin Stadium. They split the stadium down the middle, with the odd J3-64 covering the additional asymmetrical seating below the press and suite box. Two Danley J4-31 Jericho Horns deliver high-frequency content to the far seats, where otherwise the high end would be diminished having traveled through so much air. A single Danley OS-80 weatherproof Synergy Horn loudspeaker fills in for the seats right below the scoreboard. Four Danley TH-812 “Rock Monster” subwoofers – two to a side – complement the fidelity of the full-frequency components with robust low end. A handful of JBL Control 28 loudspeakers provide coverage of the small shaded area underneath the press and suite box. A rack of Crown i-Tech HD-Series amplifiers powers the system, with processing from a BSS London backbone.

Danley Sound Labs, President Mike Hedden commented, “This was a short turnaround project and was one of the first using our SketchUp plugin module in DDT3D. This is a very powerful 3D coverage program we developed that enables accurate predictions of all frequencies from 20Hz and up. We’ve worked with virtually all the major modeling programs and DDT is simply the easiest yet powerful program out there. This enabled us to turn the entire design around in basically one day.”

“The coverage is great,” said Vaught. “The long throw across the field is impressive, and the high end from the J4s together with the low end from the 812s provides a full-frequency experience that stadiums with conventional systems would have a hard time replicating. Surprisingly, we actually received a request to turn the system down after the first few home games. That never happens! If anything, systems aren’t loud enough. But at Martin Stadium, we pulled it back a bit. There’s plenty of headroom, and it sounds clean and undistorted. Cougars fans will enjoy this sound system for a long time to come!”

ABOUT DANLEY SOUND LABS Danley Sound Labs is the exclusive home of Tom Danley, one of the most innovative loudspeaker designers in the industry today and recognized worldwide as a pioneer for “outside the box” thinking in professional audio technology.

Masque Sound Supports Billy Crystal’s Return to Broadway for Reprisal of Tony® Award-Winning Play, 700 Sundays

Photo Credit: Carol Rosegg

When Billy Crystal returned to Broadway to reprise his Tony® Award-winning play 700 Sundays, Masque Sound, a leading theatrical sound reinforcement, installation and design company, was on hand to support Sound Designer Steve Canyon Kennedy and Associate Sound Designer Walter Trarbach with a custom audio equipment package.

700 Sundays, an autobiographical journey, is an original two-act play centered on the legendary actor’s heartfelt and often hilarious story of growing up, growing old and the undeniable power of family. Crystal plays numerous characters that have influenced who he is today, taking audiences through his youth, growing up in the jazz world of Manhattan, his teenage years, and finally his adulthood. The title refers to the number of Sundays shared by Crystal and his father, Jack Crystal, who passed away when he was 15.

“Masque Sound has been the audio equipment rental provider since the show made its Broadway debut in 2004. They have been with us for two national tours as well as the show’s Australia run, so they were the obvious choice for this reprisal,” says Trarbach. “We have enjoyed our relationship with Masque Sound, and their equipment and support is always top notch.”

For 700 Sundays, Masque Sound provided a custom audio package that included an Avid VENUE Profile digital mixing console. L-Acoustics dv-DOSCs made up the line array elements for the main speaker system and a selection of speakers from Meyer Sound, EAW and d&b were utilized as fill speakers for the rest of the theater. An XTA Electronics DP428/448 Audio Management System and Meyer Sound Galileo 616 Loudspeaker Management System as well as a wireless microphone package from Sennheiser and an intercom system from Clear-Com were also included.

“In addition to the high quality gear provided by Masque Sound, the sound system worked well thanks to the hard work of our team,” says Trarbach. “Production Sound Engineer Andrew Keister and John Cooper, who handled the backstage audio, both did a wonderful job.”

700 Sundays won the 2005 Tony Award for Special Theatrical Event and the 2005 Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Awards for Outstanding Solo Performance. The limited nine-week engagement will continue through January 5, 2014 at the Imperial Theatre (249 West 45th Street). HBO will be filming the play for a special that is slated to air in 2014.

High-Tech Meets Elegance at Iceland’s Hippest Bowling Lanes

Reykjavik, Iceland | January, 2014 – When a bowling alley houses 22 lanes plus a VIP/private party area, a sports bar, cafe, and restaurant, live DJs, and more than 50 screens to showcase all the best in live sports and entertainment, it’s clear that this is not just another blue collar beer-and-peanuts joint. Keiluhöllin Egilshöll, is a noteworthy blend of both high-tech and elegant design, boasting one of Iceland’s largest AV installations to date and being named Bowlers Journal’s “Best New Lounge/Restaurant.”

Inside this 30,000 sq. foot venue, club-like LED lighting pours over the lanes and neon bowling balls, with sleek, softly lit lounges with plush couches tucked away behind. LCD screens hover over the lanes and line the dimly lit brick walls of the bar and cafe. The restaurant, meanwhile, is free of screens, filling the space with decorative lighting and rustic stone walls.

Despite the venue’s singular elegance, it still presents all the acoustical challenges associated with any bowling alley — hard, reverberant surfaces, ever-changing audio material, and of course, the inevitable din of the game itself. Reykjavik-based AV designers ETOS designed and installed the high-end sound and video systems for this uniquely diverse venue. As ETOS General Manager Jakob Kristinsson explains, the audio system had to not only transmit intelligible announcements over the din of a cacophonous bowling alley, but also deliver full spectrum sound and hefty bass for music and live DJs – hence the decision to go with the power, pattern control, and full-range performance of the Renkus-Heinz CF/CFX series.

Across the six zones covering the 22 lanes and VIP area, ETOS installed 12 CFX151 cabinets, with six CFX18S subwoofers for low end reinforcement. Featuring a two-inch extended range titanium HF driver, and a 15-inch heavy duty woofer that can handle up to 700W, the CFX151s powerfully deliver the full spectrum performance required in the main bowling area. The built-in crossover also includes EQ and high-frequency protection, ideal for the dynamic changes in audio and occupancy levels.

Augmenting the primary setup, six CFX121 cabinets in three zones cover the restaurant area, with four more CF121 units across the four zones covering the sports bar and cafe. Audio networking is courtesy of two Peavey MediaMatrix Nion n6 systems.

The video component of this AV installation is extensive as well, including more than 45 LCD displays and 15 projectors from Philips, LG, and Panasonic. Rounding out the impressive look and sound of Keiluhöllin Egilshöll is a full Crestron controlled LED and lighting system, including five wireless control pads.

The installation’s intense schedule compressed about 800 hours into an eight week span to complete the entire project, from design to doors opening. Since then, ETOS reports the system has been performing flawlessly, blending the best in design with the best in technology.
