Toronto, Canada (September 24, 2013)—As part of a complete renovation of Maple Leaf Gardens, reopening as the Mattamy Athletic Center (MAC) at the Gardens, a QSC Q-Sys system was installed to provide audio for the building.
Devy Breda, CET, CTS, senior AV systems designer with Mulvey & Banani International Inc. (MBII) of Toronto Ontario chose to install three QSC Q-Sys Core 1000 processors and more than 32 QSC amplifiers. Q-Sys manages the sound reinforcement system in the 2,600-plus-seat ice rink, provides zoned paging to all of the installed sound systems in the MAC and facilitates room combining in the conference suites.
Toronto-based show services and AV systems integration firm Westbury National, under the direction of project manager Scott Wouters, installed all of the MAC facility’s AV equipment.
The three Q-Sys Core 1000 processors manage three main zones in the MAC’s upper floors: the ice hockey arena; the 1,000-seat Coca-Cola Court, which hosts basketball, volleyball and other sports; and the remainder of the public areas, which include a fitness center, gymnasium, studios and meeting rooms.
More than 32 QSC amplifiers were also installed at the Mattamy Athletic Center. A full 20 QSC CX902 and four CX602V two-channel amplifiers power the installed speakers in the ice hockey arena and the gym, while eight QSC CX204V four-channel amps drive the MAC’s various 70V distributed audio systems. “QSC amplifiers were a good fit for this project,” Breda said. “When I looked at Q-Sys, the CX series and the DataPorts, it was all there—a holistic marriage.”
