Lake Mary, FL (March 11, 2015)—The Fine Arts Theater at Seminole State College of Florida’s Sanford/Lake Mary campus holds 160 on a raked seating array, and these days, it also contains a Bose RoomMatch loudspeaker system that was designed and installed by regional integrator Sound Stage, Inc.

The system comprises a single center cluster consisting of three RoomMatch modules—RM12020, RM9020 and RM7020—topped by an RMS215 subwoofer. The system is powered by a Bose PowerMatch PM8500 amplifier and utilizes a Bose ControlSpace DSP control processor for speaker management.

Bill Fletcher, co-owner of Sound Stage, used Bose Modeler sound system software to analyze the theater’s acoustical parameters and choose the right RoomMatch components for the space. “We weren’t able to apply any acoustical treatments to the theater walls, because the theater department wanted the room to have a certain amount of liveliness to the sound for music and speech projection,” explains Fletcher. “So we needed a sound system that could keep the energy highly focused on the seating area and off the walls, and that’s what RoomMatch excels at.”

Kenneth Moore, lead media production specialist at the college, added, “Last fall, Seminole State College hosted the American Choral Directors Association Florida Chapter’s annual event, and the entertainment for the opening night was the Grammy-winning vocal group Take 6. The Bose system performed magnificently. It was so rich and clear that I could only wish that I had ‘synesthesia’ and had the ability to ‘see’ the smooth jazz, gospel, rock and R&B music as they performed it through the Bose RoomMatch system. What a thrill! And as far as the installation process went, from the first day that we met with Sound Stage, Inc. until the project was finished, they were not only professional but trustworthy, which made the design and installation process first rate.”
