Technical Specifications

Brief System Overview

The Roy Wilkins Auditorium Sound Reinforcement System (equipment listed below) has been designed with the following operational features:

The main mixing console which is a Soundcraft MH3, 40 Mono + 4 Stereo. The console will interface with the main system via Whirlwind Concert Series 56 system. This configuration is 48 input channels and 8 output channels. The console also may be "inserted."

The main speaker/amplifier system/digital signal processing which is composed of 12 JBL AM6340/64 three-way full range speakers (main left/right), 8 JBL CSR-82L sub woofer speakers, 8 JBL PD5212/64 full range speakers (delays), 2 Crown Macro-Tech 3600VZ amplifiers, 6 Crown Macro-Tech 5002VZ amplifiers, 2 Crown Macro-Tech 1202 amplifiers, 2 Crown CL4 amplifiers, 2 BSS Soundweb 9088iiLL Processors and 1 dbx DriveRack 480 Processor. The intent of the design via digital signal processing is to control the delay/balcony speakers, the sub woofers and the main clusters (left/right) speakers which are flown and stacked. All of the main full range speakers (flown and stacked) have the ability to be to be flown together (left/right). The digital signal processing will allow the FOH engineer to control sub woofers off an "aux" if so desired. The digital signal processing will also allow artists who carry their own production.

The "upstage" center cluster system which is composed of 4 JBL AM6212/xx series speakers and 2 Crown CL2 amplifiers. The intent of the design via digital signal processing is to control the cluster for upstage area for fill and special coverage use.

The monitor mixing console which is a Soundcraft MH3, 40 Mono + 4 Stereo. The console will interface with the monitor system via an isolated "split" from the Whirlwind Concert Series 56 system. This configuration is 48 input channels and 8 output channels. The console also may be "inserted."

The monitor speaker/amplifier system which is composed of 12 JBL SRX712M Floor Monitors, 2 JBL SRX725 Side Wash Monitors, 12 Crown Macro-Tech 36x12 amplifiers and 3 dbx DriveRack 480 Processors with controller. The monitor system is set up for 12 monitor mixes, with the dbx DriveRack providing speaker control, equalization and digital processing. The DriveRack controller will allow operators to interface more easily with the DriveRack processing units.

The equalization/compression-gating processing which is composed of 1 dbx iEQ-31 dual channel equalizer, 1 dbx 1046 4-channel compressor and 1 dbx 1074 4-channel gate. These units are intended for the operator to use in the main system to assist in the operator's ability to "shape" the audio content in the system.

The effects digital processing which is composed of 2 Yamaha SPX2000 effects processors. The processors are located in the main and monitor systems and are intended for the operator to use in the systems to assist in the operator's ability to "shape" the audio content in the system.

The media playback unit which is composed of 1 TASCAM CD-A630 CD/Cassette player (at FOH rack). This unit will allow playback of compact discs or cassette tapes and will allow recording to cassette tape.

The microphone complements and intercom. Please contact the Roy Wilkins Auditorium tech director for updated lists.
