Brentwood, NY (February 7, 2012)—A new QSC system has been installed at Suffolk County Community College.
Located on Long Island, NY, the college has installed in its 60,000-square-foot field house WideLine line array loudspeakers, PowerLight Series amplifiers and SC28 processors.
“I’ve been a QSC fan forever,” says system designer/installer Dominick Campana, General Manager of Pro Sound Alliance, a division of Live Sound, Inc., based in Troy, NY. Tasked with designing a sound system that could be configured for the variety of events typically held at the multi-use facility, Campana and his crew installed a total of 16 WideLine-10 (WL2102-w-WH) wide dispersion line array speakers, 14 WideLine-8 (WL3082-WH) ultra compact line array modules and two WL212-sw-WH ultra compact subwoofers. Two PL325, six PL340 and five PL380 amplifiers power the system, all optimized by three SC28 processors. The speakers were flown using two AF-2102-LA-WH large array and three AF3082-S-WH small array frames and an EB3082-WH extension bar.
The venue can seat more than 4,000 people for graduation ceremonies and an eight-per-side WideLine-10 system handles the full house. A single, six-module WideLine-8 array provides coverage to the venue’s east side for trade shows while special events, such as conferences and seminars, are handled by the top four boxes of an eight-module WideLine-8 on the west side. For center court basketball games, the full eight-module WideLine-8 array, with WL212 subs flown behind the mains, delivers sound. All the speakers and flying hardware are finished in white to match the aesthetics of the athletic center.
“As far as the system goes, I’m in heaven!” states Neftali Collazo, director, special events and programs, SUNY Suffolk, who worked with the school’s audio expert, Ray Reardon, technical director, Department of Theater Arts, to bring the new system to the field house. “Everything was so perfect. There were no hiccups, no problems at all. Dominick and his crew were phenomenal; I would recommend them to anybody.”
