Saddle River, NJ (May 10, 2010)—New Jersey’s Saddle River Day School recently upgraded its auditorium with a new sound system from Boulevard Pro that includes a Yamaha console and loudspeakers.
Located in the hills of Saddle River, New Jersey, the school is a non-profit, college-preparatory independent day school accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools and the State of New Jersey. Founded in 1957, its student body of 300+ boys and girls is drawn from 64 communities in Bergen, Essex and Passaic Counties in New Jersey and Rockland County in New York.
Recently, Boulevard Pro (Oradell, NJ) was hired by the school to take on the task of upgrading their existing 250-seat performance space/auditorium in Alford Hall. After taking out the old system, the auditorium was outfitted with a Yamaha LS9-16 digital audio console with MY8-AD96-CA and MLA8 cards, providing the console with a total of 24 mic lines. Two Yamaha Installation Series IF2112 speakers for front of house PA and two IF2108 speakers for monitors were also installed.
“Saddle River Day School is a high-end private school with a very active arts program and drama department, so the new system is always in use,” states James Cioffi, Boulevard Pro. “The upgrade has been dramatic and everyone
is over the moon about the new system. The LS-9 is the star of the show.”
“Boulevard Pro has been just terrific to work with,” states Jacki Moro, Chair of the Performing Arts and Vocal teacher for grades K-12. “They have been here not only to install the system but to train me and several students on how to run things properly.”
Boulevard also updated the microphone system to include five Shure MX202b and two Shure MX418 microphones and re-installed 10 AudioTechnica lav wireless systems. A QSC cx404 amplifier is used at front of house and monitors. A new 24x4 custom snake with multi DIs connects front of house to the stage.
“We have had the best sound at concerts and our theater productions in all of the 10 years that I have been at Saddle River Day School,” Moro notes.
