Symetrix Jupiter 8 App Based Turn-Key DSP Joins Jacksonville Jaguars


Under the direction of Neil Cooper, Senior Project Manager for Florida Sound Engineering, the outfit designed and installed the Jaguar’s new A/V system for their renovated locker room, which relies on a Symetrix Jupiter 8 app based turn-key DSP.

“The team came to us with a simple request,” Cooper explained. “They wanted a rockin’ sound system with plenty of screens to go with it. They really wanted to give the players a place to associate with."

"When I looked at my options for processing, the Symetrix Jupiter 8 DSP was an obvious choice. It’s powerful and easy to set up, and nothing else comes close to matching its feature set for the price. And since I’ve already used a number of Jupiters on other jobs, I know they’re reliably solid. I never have to go back.”

In addition to the literal locker room, the new system covers all of the more extensive facilities that go with it, including the showers, the drying area, the restaurant, the cool- and hot-tanks, the therapy room, the equipment room and the manager’s area.

All thirty-three of the inputs, only two of which are audio-only, are fully matrixed such that any input can be selected in any zone. Apart from the locker room itself, which uses a DBX Drive Rack processor, the rest of the system relies on the Symetrix Jupiter 8 DSP, which takes its inputs from a Crestron control and matrixing system. Its eight outputs feed separate zones. QSC amplifiers, loudspeakers, and subwoofers fill the audio portion of the new system.

“Despite the complexity of the Jaguar’s new A/V system, programming the Symetrix Jupiter 8 DSP was super easy,” said Cooper. “I used the Sound Reinforcement #6 App, which gave me great sounding equalisation and dynamics.

"I know that there are other manufacturers who make 8 x 8 processors of good quality, but the price isn’t there. The Symetrix Jupiter DSP delivers the quality, flexibility, reliability, and affordability that makes my clients smile.”

The Jaguar’s new video system is comprised of two 80-inch, five 52-inch, four 46-inch, and seven 42-inch full-HD Sharp flat screens. Inputs include ten Comcast TV sources, a Blu-ray player, Apple TV, and two wall plate inputs.

The Crestron DM system scales everything appropriately such that the full screen is filled for any input / output combination. A 15-inch Crestron interface in the equipment manager’s area provides total system control, and a smaller nine-inch Crestron interface in the locker room allows selection of presets, such as pre-game, half-time, and post-game.
