Commercial Project

Great Hall in the Auckland Town Hall

Auckland Central, New Zealand

Complete front-of-house audio solution for the Great Hall located in the Auckland Town Hall.


Central Cluster

The Central JBL Speaker system is designed around a 7 speaker cluster hung with new custom bracketing.
The central cluster has discrete amplification, giving the ability to turn on and off or reduce the volume of specific speakers based on the audience size and areas of coverage required.

All Other Areas

JBL AC16’s and CBT’s address all other areas and came from the factory unfinished. These were painted to match with the Town Hall’s colour scheme. Custom brackets for low profile fitting on the underside of the balcony areas were produced, and these speakers are horizontally mounted for lower form impact.

Signal Processing & Mixing

A BSS control solution complete with a 20″ touch panel is located in the comms room for preset recall functionality and EQ. This panel has multiple levels of control for technicians and live events.

A PC has also been included for complete control/setting of the systems EQ etc. as well as system monitoring and will provide temp warnings etc. of the amplifiers as well as status indication, with email notification.

All the comms and audio is distributed over fibre using Dente.

Sound craft mixing desk linked to the BSS and fibre optic digital audio snake completes the system.
