PEORIA, ILLINOIS – OCTOBER 2014: Richwoods Christian Church was founded in the late 1990s by pastor Jim Powell in Peoria, Illinois. Its congregation was initially small, a scant sixty-five people, but those congregants were motivated to grow the church. They succeeded, and today Richwoods Christian Church brings 1,400 people together every weekend, spread across four services at two locations. The larger location built its current sanctuary in a former high-end furniture store, where, despite low ceiling height, local A/V integration firm Advanced Audio and Lighting gave the church a highly-intelligible and musical sound reinforcement system based on Danley Sound Labs SH-50 full-range loudspeakers and TH-115 subwoofers. Not wanting to compromise at the satellite location, Richwoods Christian Church asked for Danley again. There, a collapsible system of self-powered Danley SH-96 loudspeakers and TH-118 subwoofers meets that goal.

CARY, NORTH CAROLINA – OCTOBER 2014: Pie Man Sound opened last month in Cary, NC, – co-owners Max and Mitch Dancik were so eager to start using their 32-channel 1608 that it’s already been used to record several local projects. Mitch said the studio is already booked solid through the year with musicians from a variety of genres anxious to record. Among others, the studio is looking forward to sessions with a young jazz/rock band working on their debut album, a quartet of Mexican classical guitarists, and a quartet of classical sax players. Mitch believes the 1608 has been a huge part of Pie Man’s early success: “My standard setup allows me to switch from record to mix mode instantly. In a ‘mix as you go’ world, this capability is critical, and a very good reason for 1608 users to consider that extra sixteen tracks.”

HAMMONTON, NEW JERSEY – OCTOBER 2014: Diggerland USA is the country's first construction-themed adventure park, allowing children and their families to operate real construction equipment in a safe environment. The 14-acre park is located adjacent to its sister attraction, Sahara Sam's Oasis, in New Jersey in the suburbs southeast of Philadelphia. Spellcaster Productions of nearby Hammonton, New Jersey designed and installed the system on a very tight timeframe; from land clearing to opening took just six months. An Ashly Audio ne24.24M modular Protea™ matrix processor outfitted with twelve inputs and twelve outputs provides all of the equalization, delay, ducking and routing for Diggerland USA, and seven Ashly KLR-3200 amplifiers power the park's seventy-plus Community loudspeakers. Ashly's networked neWR-5 wall-mount user control allows staff members to adjust input and volume within a given zone, and Ashly's iPad app gives management complete control of the park's audio from anywhere via Wi-Fi.
