Acoustic Technologies blends in at Customs House

Published: ASIA

AUSTRALIA: The University of Queensland recently enlisted audio consultant Peter Patrick from Scientific Acoustics to design a sound reinforcement solution for the function room and cultural centre of Customs House. As the building is heritage listed, the project brief stated that no modifications were allowed to be made to the building and the chosen solution was to blend in with the décor. To meet these needs, as well as the main requirement for a highly intelligible system, Mr Patrick specified a solution from Acoustic Technologies.

Originally built between 1886 and 1889, Brisbane’s Customs House was leased by the university, which restored and reopened it in 1994 as a cultural, educational and heritage facility. The system designed by Mr Patrick comprised six Acoustic Technologies ALA16 FS line array column speakers with a pair of MKB200 wall subs. Ultra-fine tuning of the systems is facilitated by 16 channels of DSP controlled amplification, for which the manufacturer recommended Powersoft’s Ottocanali.

‘These AT products are unobtrusive and well suited to beautiful installations such as Customs House,’ said Carol Lloyd-Williams of Acoustic Technologies. ‘They offer complete and efficient coverage without impacting the architecture and décor. They are truly a “heard but not seen” solution.’
