Edmonton, Canada (August 20, 2014)—The Mayfield Dinner Theater, a live entertainment venue in Edmonton, Alberta, recently installed a Bose RoomMatch Progressive Directivity Array loudspeakers to its 400-seat theater.
Production World installed the system, which consists of three hangs—two outer arrays, each with four symmetrical array modules, and a center array with two symmetrical array modules and two RMS215 subwoofers, all powered by four Bose PowerMatch PM8500N networked amplifiers.
“They make the best use of the space they have there, so the tables on the first tier come right up to the edge of the stage,” explains Kelly Kimo, vice president of Production World. “That was where the theater had some of its biggest challenges with sound: the old sound system needed front fills on the lip of the stage to cover those front tables, but those seats wound up with very loud audio compared to other tables in the room.”
With input from Bose’s technical support team members using the Bose Modeler design software, Production World created and installed the new system. Previously, certain audience members’ hearing aids were impacted and overdriven by the previous PA system’s sound. Now, says Kimo, “There’s no longer a sharp boost in certain midrange frequencies that could really be annoying to hearing-aid users. This system works for everyone and gives them all a great theater experience every time.”
