Advanced Systems Group (ASG) helped improve the sound delivery and quality in the University of Saint Francis’ performing arts center by installing a comprehensive sound system.
Despite the complexity of the sound system, the location of the speakers, and a very tight installation time frame, we delivered the project on time and within budget.
The client needed a state-of-the-art sound system installed in their historical Robert Goldstine Performing Arts Center used for theatrical, musical, commencement, and speaking events.
The project involved challenges including a 52-foot ceiling height, an orchestra pit that would not support traditional scaffolding, and a speaker mounting height of over 40 feet—that ASG overcame with an innovative solution.
After consulting with a large equipment vendor, ASG implemented the cost-effective idea of using a specialty lift used for window washing. This provided the stability and flexibility required to complete the work safely and efficiently.
We pulled wire and installed a new eight-speaker sound system. We also installed subwoofers and mains above the theater’s proscenium, and two 12-foot vertical speakers on either side of stage in the auditorium.
Founded in Lafayette, Indiana in 1890, and relocated to Fort Wayne in 1944, the University of Saint Francis is a private, Catholic university serving more than 2,000 students.
