Gand Sound Installations (GSI) of Glenview, Illinois, delivered a new audio system based around NEXO PS8s and a Yamaha LS9-32 digital console. “The main criterion was to use the smallest speakers so that they would be essentially invisible to the audience. The Yamaha LS9-32 digital console allows for a smaller equipment footprint in the front of house booth and the capability to store presets for every show, adding instant repeatability from rehearsal to performance.”
“A 36″ deep duct running left to right through the center of the room provided a unique challenge,” notes Gary Gand. “This was tackled by installing 4x NEXO PS8U speakers over the stage and an additional pair on the back side of the duct which are delayed. Rigging was also a challenge to locate the PS8s where they would do what the GEOSOFT software promised. Utilizing NEXO’s own proprietary rigging hardware allowed us to aim cabinets to match the software recommendations.” 2x LS400 subwoofers were installed along with 2x NEXO NXAMP 4×1 amplifiers.
