Burton Town Hall Upgrades Sound with Community

Burton Town Hall, Staffordshire, UK, has upgraded the sound in the Main Hall of its Civic Function Suite with a Community loudspeaker system, designed and installed by PAS Sound Engineering.

Centrally situated in the heart of the UK’s Midlands, Burton Town Hall is an elegant Victorian hall built in 1894. A multi-purpose venue, Burton Town Hall plays host to a variety of events and provides an eye-catching backdrop for exhibitions, festivals, trade fairs, shows, parties and weddings.
The main equipment, Community, Symetrix and Formula Sound, was all sourced from distributor CUK Audio and Bernie worked closely with CUK’s Stuart Cunningham on the system design.
The selection of Entasys 200 column-array systems met the hall’s aesthetic requirements. “Simply adding a limiter isn’t the answer,” said Bernie. “If the sound level on the floor isn’t high enough, the user frequently hits the noise level cut-off, which leads to very unsatisfactory performance. With Entasys we are able to achieve excellent levels across the hall.”
The loudspeaker system comprises two Community Entasys 212's at either side of the stage, two 206s on delay for rear of the room and two 212's for the balcony. The loudspeakers are supplemented by six Community VLF212 subwoofers in two three-box arrays, using the VLF-SAB array bracket, at either side of the stage. Community’s S4 subwoofer steering simulation software was used to configure the arrays. The loudspeakers are driven by three Powersoft M28Q four-channel amplifiers.
Processing and control for the system is handled by a Symetrix Radius 12x8 processor with Dante networking.
Councillor Peters, the Council’s portfolio holder for Service Commissioning, said: “The sound system installed in the Function Suite is a significant investment. The Council continues to offer a popular community venue while ensuring residents in the area are not inconvenienced by any background noise from events."
