Happy Holidays from SoundTube, Soundsphere, Rockustics and SolidDrive
As we wrap up 2016, we’re looking back at a few of our favorite installations during the year. We would love to share your installations of our products – please send photos and a short project description to firstname.lastname@example.org.
National Corvette Museum – Bowling Green, Kentucky
This museum, which showcases classic Corvette cars, was thrust into the national news in 2014 when a sinkhole opened up in the middle of the facility and swallowed several cars. (Luckily, no one was hurt.) Renovations were recently completed, including a complete revamp of the Museum’s sound system. Centerline Audio Visual of Hendersonville, TN, installed more than 200 SoundTube in-ceiling and pendant speakers in 40 zones. Ashly amplifiers and a Symetrix Symnet Radius DSP matrix router manage the zoning and amplification.
Volo Museum – Volo, Illinois
The Volo Museum is a large facility encompassing two city blocks. Inside are 400 classic cars, about 200 motorcycles and snowmobiles, an antiques mall and food facilities. About 100 of the facility’s cars are museum pieces; the rest are for sale and are on display.
Several TV and movie cars are on display at the museum, and video clips relating to the cars are played at each of these cars. The museum had been using standard speakers for the video clips, along with overhead speakers for music. Brian Grams, a partner in the museum, happened to see a dome speaker while visiting another museum. A Google search led him to SoundTube. Grams ordered 14 SoundTube FP6030-II dome speakers in August 2015 and purchased another 10 in early 2016. “It’s a great change from before,” says Grams.” Now, when you walk into the museum you hear the overhead music nice and clear, and as you walk down the aisle you can step in front of a display and hear the audio just for it!”
Summerlin Center Mall, Las Vegas Nevada
Yes, it does get cold in Vegas! South Central AV installed 10 SoundTube SM890i-WH surface-mount speakers around an outdoor ice rink at the Summerlin Center Mall. In the summertime, the venue is used for special events.
Carmax – South Jordan, Utah
This car dealership in a suburb of Salt Lake City uses Soundsphere speakers to provide music and paging throughout their showroom. Soundsphere is ideal for large, open, reverberant spaces such as this.
We wish you a successful, happy and healthy 2017. Thank you for your business this year!
