Saint Stephen’s College installed with Clair Brothers
AUSTRALIA: Clair Brothers Australia recently supplied and installed a Clair Brothers sound reinforcement system into the multipurpose Goda Firkins Auditorium at Saint Stephen’s College on the Gold Coast.
Taking just five days to complete the project, Clair Brothers Australia installed two flown R2D-94 active two-way full range cabinets, whilst two CS18-II subwoofers were built into the stage at floor level. Meanwhile, two Clair Brothers R2T full range speakers were installed, as was one I/O two-in-six out DSP speaker, two Bag End monitors and a Yamaha LS9 audio console.
‘I have always believed Clair Brothers to be the best in professional audio, and Wayne Grosser, managing director of Clair Brothers Australia, was able to work with me to get the best possible outcome within my budget,’ said event coordinator Tony Marshall. ‘The Goda Firkins Auditorium is a multi-purpose venue that can in one day be used for choirs, string quartets, drama performances, funk band rehearsals and seminars, but the Clair Brothers system has got it all covered,’ he asserted.
‘Finding time to get into the room proved to be a challenge, but the installation went very smoothly and it sounds really good. The client is very happy, and it has definitely improved the facility. Previously the room had dead spots and due to the speaker configuration it was difficult to get a good overall sound, particularly with the varied range of performances.
‘Parents at private colleges are very critical about how their children sound during a performance, (it is always the system and the operators that are at fault, never the ability of the performers!) and I have had nothing but good feedback about the sound. The improvement was stunning,’ he enthused.
