Dry Hollow Elementary School

Recently we worked with Dry Hollow elementary in The Dalles, OR to design and install an audio system for a small gymnasium that is used as a multi purpose room. These types of A/V systems can be a challenge to design as they need to be versatile as well as very easy to use for daily operation. The rack needed to be a lockable, ergonomic, and have a rugged design to withstand impact from PE activities. In addition, it needed the capacity and flexibility to be used in sound reinforcement for plays and school presentations. The system is composed of 4 wireless microphones with external antennas for robust connectivity, a media player that includes CD, USB, Bluetooth, and aux sources, a rack mount mixer, a rack drawer to store microphones, a Crown XTI amplifier with DSP, 2 JBL CBT column array speakers and a 18” powered JBL subwoofer. The system is powerful and covers the space very well. It may be the best sounding audio system in town! Working with Dry Hollow Elementary was a great experience. Their team had everything in place and ready to go when we arrived, so we were able to complete the job in one day. It was also nice to meet a PTA member during the install as they were instrumental in raising the funds to pay for the system.
