Roebuck, SC (November 20, 2014)—The new District Six Fine Arts Center, a 1,500 seat auditorium at the Dorman High School Campus, hired Raleigh, NC-based Theater Consultants Collaborative to specify the venue's sound system. A Renkus-Heinz Varia modular point source line array loudspeaker was configured for the venue, with the main front of house system comprised of left and right flown arrays of eight Varia VA101-7 7.5 degree cabinets and one VA101-15 15 degree cabinet.
"Varia was an ideal choice for this venue because its variable coverage pattern enabled us to use fewer boxes to achieve the same coverage," explains David Clyburn of Roebuck, SC-based Musicraft, the company handling the installation.
For low frequency reinforcement, six DR18-2 Direct Radiating Subwoofers are groundstacked in concrete reinforced chambers to the left and right of the stage. "The subwoofers are installed three to each side in cardioid configuration, 16 feet above the stage floor," explained Clyburn.
To address coverage in the balcony, four PN121 two-way Complex Conic systems were installed. Finally, 20 PNX81 two-way systems were installed around the auditorium for surround sound reinforcement, creating a true 7.1 surround sound environment in the auditorium.
