Audio Video Server

There are 4 Kaleidescape players available to all TV’s.


The original speakers were active, running on a proprietary audio distribution network.

As this system was replaced with Crestron Digital Media, we needed to modify all the speakers around the boat from active to passive. This was a better option than replacing all of the speakers as the installation was custom and this would have required a huge amount of carpentry rework.

We took a measurement graph of the original speaker response, then removed the active amplifier and then measured the individual speaker response. With this information, we then acquired a passive x-over network that would work with the individual drivers. Once we tested the new passive speaker and were happy with the results, we then set changed all remaining speakers on the boat.
