SOUND

House Sound System:     -While the house is large, the acoustics are excellent and sound                                             reinforcement can be kept to a minimum.

                                          -The house sound system is a monaural center cluster system with four                                          delayed fill speakers for the upper levels of the house.   There are                                          feeds backstage for additional left and right channels.

                                           -Stage foldback moniter system with two pairs of Speakon connection                                            points on stage driven by a 400w/ch QSC amp.   The signal is fed to the                                            system from the aux outputs #1 and #2 on the house mix console.   These                                            outputs simultaneously feed back stage XLR-M connector point to allow                                            the use of powered monitors and aux outputs #3 and #4 may be                                            configured as additional monitor feeds via the patch bay and tie-line                                            infrastructure.   Two E/V Force 12 passive monitors are available.

                                           -The house sound system has a useable frequency bandwidth of                                            40-16,000Hz and a dynamic range of over 97db across the entire                                            bandwidth.

                                            -Full audio fidelity is available to untrained users via the Auto-mix                                              system provided by a Shure SM-810 auto-mixer which is fed by 6                                              unique mic lines and two Telex wireless mics.

                                             -A complete two-channel Clear-Com intercom is available with                                               connection points throughout the theater and its supporting                                               spaces.   See below for inventory.

                                             -Stage monitor system which is fed by the house sound system                                                provides monitoring in the Black Box, Music and Chorus Rooms,                                                and the Stagecraft Room.   Please not that this system is only fed                                                by the house sound system; there is no provision for a stage                                                monitor microphone.

                                             -The sound control booth is located in the rear of the auditorium.   An                                              additional house mix location is available in the center of the house.   All                                              mic, output, intercom, and source connections are available at the house                                              mix location.   Please note that if this location is used, the control booth                                              location is not usable due to the interconnect lines to the house mix                                              location.
