New York (June 27, 2006)–New Jersey’s Cape May Jazz Festival, held last month, was heard in eight venues this year via Turbosound Aspect loudspeakers recently purchased by Bauder Audio Systems (Horsham, PA). The new 48-box then traveled on to commencement ceremonies at Temple University in Philadelphia. The 24 pairs of new Aspect TA-890H mid-high and TA-890L subwoofer speakers join Bauder Audio’s existing Turbosound Floodlight system.
Bauder Audio used its new Turbosound Aspect loudspeaker system to handle sound reinforcement for the graduation ceremonies at Temple University.”We’re running Floodlight and Aspect systems concurrently,” said company owner Rick Bauder. “We have 108 boxes between them. When we purchased the Aspect system, we built all new amp racks, new flyware, everything. It’s a standalone system, which allows us to be more flexible.”
Bauder Audio services the Cape May Jazz Festival twice a year, in May and November. “We put eight systems and 14 technicians into eight venues for the three-day festival. The key is to have speaker systems that package into small nightclub environments. You pick what fits the venue. In the larger venues, like the convention hall, we would typically use Aspect.”
Bauder Audio has been using Turbosound for almost 20 years, said Bauder, who established the company, near Philadelphia, in 1980. That first rig was purchased from Bauder’s longtime friend and Turbosound dealer, Carl Taylor, of Crystal Taylor Productions. The company has continued to acquire Turbosound equipment as it has become available, and now holds an extensive inventory of Floodlight, QLight, TXD and TMS systems that allows the company to handle venues from 1,200 seats to 12,000.
