R-Series Helps Cover Ocean County College

OCC's Athletics Hall and Gymnasium, a multi-use facility used for games, classes and other events, was recently upgraded with a new sound system to replace its 1970s era setup.

The design-build project was handled by Blackwood, NJ-based JD Sound and Video, and features Community Professional's R-Series loudspeakers and iBOX subwoofers.
The distributed system is comprised of 20 R.5COAX two-way loudspeakers, painted black to blend in with the venue's dark beamed ceiling. The R.5s are hung in pairs, with one loudspeaker covering a portion of the bleachers and the other directed to the main floor.

A pair of iBOX i215LVS subwoofers hung left and right along a central beam provide powerful bottom end. The system is powered by Crown CTS and CDI amplification, with a Rane RPM2 DSP unit providing system drive and processing.

"The room has a folding wall that can divide it in half," added DiSabatino, "and the system can be configured to route any sound source to either side of the system for maximum flexibility."

"While the project itself was relatively straightforward, the time-frame was anything but, said DiSabatino. "Once they accepted our bid, we had a two week window before classes resumed to get the entire system installed."

"Community had just introduced the R.5 in black, and they were still manufacturing some of the cabinets as we began the installation. Then we had to evacuate one day due to a minor earthquake, and another day due to a water main break. We were literally fighting the clock, and it was then that we really appreciated how easy the system was to install and set up."
