Sound System Upgrade – Performing Arts

The auditorium is used by the entire district for awards presentations, dance recitals, orchestra and choral concerts, musical productions, assemblies, and guest lecturers. As part of the recent bond issue, the auditorium received a new sound system, control board, wireless microphones, loudspeakers, and several other new components.

Although this has made a tremendous improvement over the previous system, there are still shortcomings that needed to be addressed. While the equipment is not the problem, the configuration and placement of the speaker cabinets is flawed and creates inconsistent sound throughout the auditorium.

By reconfiguring the equipment and adding a few more components, the audio upgrade provided much better sound quality for audiences at all event types and eliminated the continuing feedback and over amplification problems experienced to date. The NPEF grant also provided greater ease of control for student technicians, faculty and staff.
