Lehigh Acres, FL (September 13, 2017)—Lehigh Senior High School’s Center of the Arts recently got an audio overhaul, with the installation of a new system built around PreSonus’ WorxAudio X1 line array loudspeakers and a StudioLive Series III digital console.
Creative Sound and Lighting Solutions of Cape Coral, FL tackled the project, with Rob Robinson, co-owner of the company, overseeing the effort. “This is a beautiful room specifically designed as a performing arts space,” Robinson said. “The stage is 60 feet wide and it’s exactly 22 feet up to the proscenium. The theater seats around 900 people and has roughly 25 percent of the floor area angled up toward the rear of the room with stadium style seating.
“After careful evaluation of the space and the types of activities that take place there, we elected to hang five PreSonus WorxAudio X1 compact line array modules as a single cluster positioned in the center of the room, just over the front edge of the stage. The 3-ton beam clamp is attached right at 37 feet and, using an 8.5-foot pipe to physically hang the loudspeaker cluster, the bottom loudspeaker is positioned at 22 feet above stage level.”
For the FOH mix position, Creative Sound placed a PreSonus StudioLive Series III 32 40-input digital console/recorder with motorized faders. The new console features full recall with 33 touch-sensitive, motorized faders and 33 recallable XMAX preamps. It also provides a 1 Gb Ethernet port that can connect to a wireless router or directly to a computer for remote control of most features.
