This college theatre installation was quite a challenge due to the nature of the multi-format space. The performing area can be freely adapted from a conventional theatre style, to a thrust format (with audience seating in a ‘U’) or a traverse format, with the audience seated either side of the performing area.
The flexible seating layouts required a similarly flexible speaker system to cover the venue in the various configurations.
A NEXO speaker system was installed by SSE Audio Group: 2 x PS15s to cover the main tiered seating, which remains in position for all seating formats, 6 x PS10R2 & 2 x LS600 subwoofers to provide ‘floating’ coverage. In traverse format – the most challenging format to cover – all 6x PS10s are deployed, mounted to custom speaker brackets using the Nexo truss clamp accessory.
In other layouts, the PS10s are utilised as fills or monitors in various locations. All PS10s are both left and right handed so they can be used in a paired monitor format too.
As the College runs a Music technology course, a capable monitor system was essential, so the flexible PS10 R2 ticked all the boxes. All PS10s are flightcased so they can be moved around the college easily as required.
2 x NXAMP 4X1 with NXAMP Patch panels provide the amp racks to power the PS10/LS600s. Both amps are racked in individual sleeves with patch panels, so they can be used in other areas of the college if required, running portable PS10 systems. These are ideal for many applications ranging from award ceremonies to discos.
