D.A.S. professional sound systems installed in the Middle East's PRCS Auditorium
D.A.S. professional sound systems were recently installed in the auditorium which the Palestine Red Crescent Society (PRCS), a humanitarian non-profit organization in the Middle East, includes among the many services it provides. This multipurpose hall has over 1000 seats and features a large stage which can be used for an extensive range of events, from charity balls to theatrical performances, in addition to its regular use as a movie theater.
Jordan-based audio and visual professionals International New Technical Est (INTE) handled the design, supply and installation at the PRCS auditorium. The project was led by INTE Project Manager Sami Nazzal, who worked hand-in-hand with D.A.S. Audio’s Sound Projects Department Engineer Eva Argandoña on acoustic simulation and system configuration and tuning.
The sound technicians opted for units from D.A.S. Audio’s Aero Series 2 line array systems for the main PA in this modern auditorium. Twelve powered D.A.S. Aero 12A line arrays were flown in hangs of six cabinets each on either side of the stage. For low frequency support these powerful units were matched with two powered D.A.S. LX-215RA subwoofers each in a cardioid configuration, which were rigged just below the Aero 12A´s.
The system at the PRCS auditorium also features a range of D.A.S. Road and Action Series stage monitors. A total of twelve versatile Road monitors (six Road 12A and six 15A) were installed, which can be easily configured to adapt to the requirements of the different activities and performances held on the auditorium’s stage.
This powerful set of stage monitors was complimented with six powered Action M12A monitors for enhanced bass reproduction. The system was rounded out with a D.A.S. DSP-4080 digital signal processor, which handles the management and control of the entire system.
The sound technicians also brought in a number of systems from D.A.S. Audio’s Artec 500 Series, installing four Artec 508A as a front fill and six Artec 526A units as under and upper balcony satellites to ensure solid sound.
These powered systems offer great frequency response and their wide range of accessories ensure that cabinets can be discreetly installed in walls, ceilings or columns with minimal visual impact. The signal from these systems is managed by a D.A.S. DSP-2060A digital signal processor to ensure superb sound.
PRCS is a humanitarian organization which was founded in 1968 with the aim of alleviating human suffering through its emergency medical services, preventive and curative health services, rehabilitation, volunteer activities, and programs that promote social development and culture, with particular focus on the most vulnerable members of society.
