Audio Specifications

FOH Console:
The FOH console is a Yamaha LS9-32 digital console providing 32 native inputs (expandable to 64 via expansion cards) and 16 Omni outputs. Each input channel has a 4 band sweepable EQ, with the mid bands having an adjustable Q, 48v phantom power, assignable mute groups, and two dynamic effects processors, which allows the assignment of any two of the available effects processors (expander, gate, compressor, de-esser, etc.).

The FOH console has 16 mix buses and an 8 space virtual effects rack, which can be used to provide graphic EQs, reverb, echo, delay and other built in effects processors, to each mix.

Our current configuration provides for 40 balanced inputs (32 native XLR balanced inputs plus 8¼ inch balanced inputs, provided by an installed expansion card), and 13 XLR Omni outputs (3 are permanently used for FOH). We are also configured for 8 monitor mixes, using 8 of the 16 mix busses, each with its own 31 band graphic EQ from the virtual effects rack(6 virtual rack spaces are used). The remaining two virtual rack spaces are currently configured for reverb and echo/delay processors. All configurations can be changed.

The console is located in the mezzanine at the rear of the house.

FOH Speaker System:
The FOH speaker system consists of a pair of Altec 9894A, two way cabinets, combined with a pair of Altec 9880A low frequency cabinets, with one 9894A and one 9880A hung over the left and right of the seating area, providing even coverage throughout the venue.

Power for these cabinets is provided by two QSC RMX 2450 (low/mid frequency), and one QSC RMX 1450 (high frequency) stereo amplifiers. The mid/high cabinets are configured for stereo operation, while the low cabinets are configured mono with the amplifier running in bridged mode.

Tuning for this system is provided by two 31 band graphic EQs from the FOH console's virtual effects rack. The console's master also has a compressor enabled, which is used to help protect the FOH cabinets, by allowing a nominal output of 98 dB, with peaks of 102 dB.

Stage Monitoring:
By use of the sixteen mix buses on the FOH console, up to thirteen distinct monitor mixes can be achieved in any configuration of pre/post fader. However, due to current venue wiring and available amplification, only eight monitor mixes are available standard.

Each of the monitor feeds are tuned via its own 31 band, graphic EQ (Yamaha’s Flex EQ), provided internally by the FOH consoles virtual effects rack.

Eight EAW VRM12 full range enclosures and three Galaxy Hot Spot monitors are available for full stage, wedge, or personal monitoring. These enclosures are powered by four QSC 2450, stereo

Each channel has two configurable dynamic processors available. “Dynamics 1” is capable of providing either a Gate, Ducking, Compressor, or Expander. “Dynamics 2” is capable of providing either a Compressor, Compander-H,Compander-S, or De-Esser.

Various other effects (i.e. Reverb/Echo/Delay/Compression) are available via the FOH console’s virtual effects rack. The number of simultaneous effects varies from one to six, based on the number of monitor mixes configured.

Media Playback:
1-Tascam 112 MK II Cassette Deck
1-Denon DN-D4000 Dual Deck CD player
1-Sony MDS-E58 Mini Disc Recorder
In addition to the above, the FOH console is capable of playing back MP3, MPEG-4 AAC and WMA format files, via a USB flash drive. Note:The USB flash drive must be no larger than2GB and must be formatted in FAT12, FAT16 or FAT32. Drives larger than 2GB may work but results are not guaranteed.
