Eastern Acoustic Works Application Support Guide: Multi-Purpose Auditoriums
This is the third installment in the Eastern Acoustic Works Application Support Guide series. The goal of this series is to offer concise, accurate guidance on the utilization of various EAW loudspeaker products for specific applications. Of course, no general handbook can address every situation you might encounter, or realistically cover the full range of options avail- able from EAW to the consultant/designer/installer.
Using the most commonly employed design concepts, we discuss the pros and cons of each option, and suggest a range of EAW products that could be applied to each design.
This chapter will focus on Multi-Purpose Auditoriums of all types including high school and college facilities, civic theaters, with seating capacities from less than 500 to more than 1200, as well as similar types of facilities including larger Houses of Worship (see the EAW Application Guide on those facilities for more information). As with each facility type this one presents its own unique challenges and problems for the sound system consultant/designer/installer. EAW’s goal, for this and all other application types is to provide you with a comprehensive set of tools that you can use to solve specific application problems.
