Coliseum Tallahassee upgrades house sound reinforcement system with D.A.S. Audio
|Whether it’s a special celebration event, a night filled with a DJ’s pulsating sounds, performances by local or regional acts, or just a great place to enjoy one another’s company, the Coliseum Tallahassee is the place to be when in Florida’s capital city. Based upon a positive experience with their previous D.A.S. Audio sound reinforcement system, the Coliseum Tallahassee elected a system based upon D.A.S. Audio’s flagship line array system: the Aero 40A.
Tallahassee, FL-based Ultimate Sound and Light was contracted to design and deploy the Coliseum’s new SR system. Pete Barbaree, the person responsible for the D.A.S. Audio system’s sale, design, and installation, elected to deploy a setup that included D.A.S. Aero 40A powered, 3-way line array elements and D.A.S. LX-218A powered subwoofers plus a D.A.S.net I/O panel for system management. Further, D.A.S. Audio Avant 118A powered horn-bass enclosures and Aero 12A 2-way, powered line array enclosures provide monitoring facilities. He discussed the nature of the project.
“The club’s previous sound system setup was based on D.A.S. Aero 12A line arrays, which they outgrew. They required a setup with greater output capability and wanted similar, if not better, audio quality, which they had come to appreciate with their D.A.S. equipment. After hearing a demo of the Aero 40A line arrays in their space, they opted to stay within the D.A.S. Aero Series 2 family of products.”
“The main space inside the Coliseum is roughly 8,000 square feet. Both the stage and the DJ booth are located at the rear of the room—facing the main entrance. The new setup involves twelve D.A.S. Aero 40A line array modules—six each for the left and right hangs. There are ten LX-218A subwoofers that are positioned in five stacks of two enclosures each. These enclosures are recessed underneath and evenly distributed across the front center of the stage area. For monitoring, there are two Avant 118A enclosures along with six Aero 12A line array modules.”
Now that the new D.A.S. sound system at the Coliseum Tallahassee is up and running, Barbaree says things couldn’t be going any better, “The Aero 40A line array was the perfect solution for this venue, which packs in patrons to its capacity night after night for hard hitting concerts. With the upgrade, we have eliminated the need for any artist, no matter how large, to fly their touring PA systems. The venue management is very pleased, as are the acts that have performed with the system. I believe it’s been a really positive experience for everyone involved.”
