Atlanta, GA (November 29, 2017)—The Salvation Army Temple in Atlanta recently upgraded its audio system, ditching a 20-year-old PA in the process. In its place is a new Nexo Geo S12 line array system, installed by Wirebox Media (Smyna, GA), which also spec’d a plethora of Yamaha gear.
The temple regularly presents a 35-piece brass band, 40-voice choir, six-piece contemporary band and numerous lead vocalists; supporting their sound in the 1,000-seat Temple now are seven Geo S1210s and one S1230. In addition, the company installed a Yamaha QL5 digital audio console with five Tio Dante input/output boxes, Yamaha IF2108 monitors, a Yamaha DME24N digital mix engine, and Yamaha SWP L2 network switches.
On the stage, Wirebox installed 14 custom panels with a total of 64 inputs to the Tio1608s, Cat 5 for the Aviom, NL4 for the Yamaha IF2108 monitors, and special patching to/from guitar isolation cabinets backstage. Processing is handled by the DME24N fitted with a Dante MY card that feeds to the Nexo NXAMP4x4 amplifiers via Dante. The Dante system is run redundant with a pair of Yamaha SWP L2 switches that network everything together. A dedicated WiFi network was installed for the Wirebox-provided iPAD to assist house engineers and volunteers with sound system operations.
The headquarters has several performance spaces equipped with Yamaha consoles and a full recording studio that regularly records performances and events. In addition to the PA system, Wirebox installed a dedicated Dante patch in a backstage room for the client’s portable recording studio.
