  2. 2. Where Sound Matters
  3. 3. Audio SYSTEM Solutions for Professionals in the theater industry trust Harman. Radio City Music Hall, Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center, The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, and The Barns at Wolf Trap™ all use Harman Professional brand products in their sound system designs. We are the go-to company for pro audio in tour and theatrical sound because we are the best in the business. For sixty years, Harman has been engineering and manufacturing integrated audio technology that is used in Theaters, Auditoriums, and Performing Arts facilities worldwide. We are one company that offers comprehensive audio system solutions that are scalable, energy efficient, and reliable. What does that mean to you? It means that you’ve found the right company to help you with your audio needs. You need a professional audio solution for your campus performing arts facility, a system that’s going to put your organization on the map. A sound system that other schools are going to want to use, and a facility that others will rent to stage their productions because you have a world class setup. Our mission is to provide audio systems for educational performing arts facilities that enhance audience experiences and create positive outcomes. We work with schools nationwide to help them design sound systems that are easy to use and affordable. At Harman, Sound Matters. Take a look at how our award winning, world renowned brands will make your facility sound the very best. Performing Arts Facilities in SCHOOLS Is it going to sound amazing? The stage is set. The actors are ready. The audience is excited to see the show. It is if you have a Harman Professional sound system.
  4. 4. Before a sound system can be designed, the installed space must be evaluated: • What are the room dimensions? • What are the construction materials in the space? • What are the acoustics like in the space? • Are there noise restrictions? • What kinds of activities will take place in the space? • In what locations will the audience sit? A Harman Professional representative can properly evaluate your space and create a 3D computer model to evaluate the sound system before it is installed. 1. Understand the Space A well designed sound system will deliver good sound to all listeners at an appropriate volume. Using speakers with a narrow coverage pattern, or placing speakers too far apart can create dead spots or unevenness in the space. An experienced audio system engineer will understand the coverage pattern of a specified speaker. A predictive computer analysis, like the one shown above, is a good way to visualize how the speakers will provide coverage and volume in the facility. A Harman Professional representative can assist with the design of a sound system that will provide proper coverage of your space. Over 500 different JBL® speakers are designed for music and speech. Which model of speakers to use depends on your needs and the acoustics of the room. The type of activities that go on in the space will determine the quantity of speakers needed to provide the desired coverage. The mounting and architectural requirements of the space will decide the type of speakers used such as ceiling, pendant, or wall. If there is a need for high impact music, subwoofers may be desired for extra low end. A Harman Professional representative is a JBL® speaker expert and will be able to advise you on the best speaker solutions for your space. 2. Select the Right Loudspeakers 3. Provide Good Coverage Before the sound system is designed for a performing arts facility many questions need to be answered. It is important to describe in detail how the system will be used, the space it will be in, and what budget you have to work with. The following six concepts serve as a solid foundation in understanding the sound system design process.

  5. 5. Speakers need amplification to operate. Some important questions to answer when specifying an amplifier are: • What are the power requirements of the specified speaker? • What is the total impedance of each speaker channel? • What kind of imaging, such as stereo or surround, does the system require? Crown® Audio manufacturers a wide variety of installed series amplifiers which can satisfy any power or channel requirements. A Harman Professional representative can assist you in selecting the best amplifiers for the system. 4. Have Enough Power 5. Fine Tune the Sound A performing arts facility needs a system that can change based upon the event taking place. Systems equipped with BSS® or dbx® controllers can be programmed with presets to automatically change audio settings based on performance type, audience location, or zone. With the turn of a dial, a room’s audio profile can switch from speech mode to performance mode, from small audience setups, to large ones. These controls can change volume and select audio devices such as music players or microphones. Controls are simple enough for anyone to master and sophisticated enough to make the setup of a room efficient. Harman Professional representatives can help specify controls that are simple and secure enough to fit any project. Each room has acoustic challenges that augment the quality of the sound. Some rooms are overly reverberant while others may be dry. This can affect the intelligibility of speech and/or create unwanted brightness or boominess in music. Having digital signal processors to fine tune the audio will assist in improving the quality of the sound. EQ, Delay, Compression, and Anti- Feedback are types of processors that make up part of the signal processing toolbox. BSS® and dbx® have digital signal processors that provide robust capabilities for altering and managing audio signals. Harman Professional certified programmers can specify the right device and program it properly for your project. 6.
