Modesto, CA (April 30, 2008)–The Harman Pro Group has a networked system at the Gallo Center For The Arts in Modesto, CA that comprises JBL VerTec and VRX line arrays, Crown amplifiers and BSS Audio processors.
A new $40 million dollar theater complex, The Gallo Center For The Arts has two performance venues; The Mary Stuart Rogers Theater is the larger of the two with 1,250 seats, while the Foster Family Theater has a capacity of 444 seats. Owned by Modesto County, the facility was financed by private donations. It is a regional facility that is home to the Modesto Symphony and will serve as a multi-purpose center. Media Systems Design Group was the audio design consultant, with Principal Tim Hart overseeing the design.
“We used the VerTec line arrays for the front of house systems because of their wide acceptance throughout the touring industry. JBL’s applications engineers were also very helpful in fine tuning the design to match the venue’s requirements,” Hart explained, “Crown amplifiers are an industry standard because of their reliability and the wide range of outputs available within each product family.”
The main theater features 18 VT4888 midsize line array elements, configured nine per side with each cluster also rigged with two VT4882 midsize arrayable subwoofers. This system design, powered by Crown CTs and I-Tech Series amplifiers, provides complete coverage of the venue. In the smaller theater, the line arrays consist of 12 JBL VRX932LA portable line arrays, arranged six per side. They are complemented by four VRX918S subwoofers, mounted on stage. Signal processing is handled by BSS 9008iis.
