HARMAN: A professional sound system that could rival any world-class rock concert venue.
To complete the 350-seat “House of Rock” performance area, the owners wanted a full stage with concert-quality lighting, video backline and a professional sound system that could rival any world-class rock concert venue.
Under the direction of Greg Adams at Santa Rosa-based systems integrator Sound Expressions, Rock Star University installed a HARMAN audio system, featuring JBL VerTec® VT4886 line arrays and SRX portable PA components, Crown I-Tech 1200HD Series power amplifiers, AKG vocal and instrument microphones, and a Soundcraft Vi1 Series console.
Adams and his team hung five JBL VT4886 loudspeakers on each side of the stage, with low-frequency reinforcement provided by one JBL SRX728 subwoofer per side. The system also features four JBL SRX712M stage monitors. Crown I-Tech 12000HD power amps power the PA system and were chosen for their sound tailoring and system tuning capabilities provided by an onboard DSP.
A Soundcraft Vi1 digital live sound console was chosen for its combination of small footprint yet large channel count, ease of use and flexibility. The Vi1 is also equipped with a MADI card that outputs multi-track digital audio from the console into a ProTools rig, so Rock Star University can record its students’ performances. Rounding out the system, Adams also specified a complement of AKG vocal and instrument microphones.
