Irvington, NY (July 30, 2007)–Studio integration specialists Professional Audio Design (PAD) recently completed its 75th custom monitoring system, installed at Robert Clivillés’ (C+C Music Factory) new Paradise Garage in Irvington, NY. A free-standing Augspurger system, Clivillés’ active 3-way setup is comprised of a single 15″ horn combination supported by a single 18″ sub powered by Bryston and Chord amps, all controlled by Lake Countor speaker management DSP.
PAD, which is celebrating its 15th Anniversary throughout 2007, reached the milestone by creating personalized systems from monitoring legends such as Augspurger and Dynaudio/Munro. By analyzing key factors such as a room’s layout, purpose, and its owner’s listening preferences while the facility is still in its design/build phase, PAD then communicates its specifications to one of the monitor designers on its roster.
At Paradise Garage, PAD used its knowledge of studio architect John Storyk’s design, including the room’s size, volume, building materials, and more to execute the Augspurger system. “Outstanding monitoring is something you build into the infrastructure of your room,” said PAD president Dave Malekpour. “Unlike gear such as a microphone which you can add into the signal path at any time, monitors are ideally considered to be a part of the facility’s design program.
“PAD’s extreme expertise in planning, wiring and creating comprehensive turnkey packages for studios large and small represents our ‘Dream Design Deliver’ philosophy in action, and makes us uniquely qualified to work with clients on this critically important aspect of their listening environment. Robert Clivillés went this route knowing that custom monitoring is a highly efficient path towards ultimate listening.”
