Rocky Hill High School

Rocky Hill High School Upgrades Auditorium Sound
Unlike many multi-purpose spaces, Rocky Hill’s auditorium has good acoustics and a permanent stage designed for theatrical performances. However, the auditorium’s sound system, which was installed many years ago, suffered from poor sound quality and feedback issues. Last year, the school contacted John Pizzoferrato of CMI Sound Systems in Newington, CT. Pizzoferrato, who had done work for the school in the past, examined the system. He recommended that the school upgrade the system with Community ENTASYS column loudspeakers, a DSP processor and new amplifiers. The school agreed and Pizzoferrato installed a pair of Community ENTASYS 220 loudspeakers, one on each side of the stage, and a pair of Community VLF-208LV subwoofers in recessed pockets under the stage. He added an Ashly DSP and a pair of Ashly amplifiers while reusing the school’s existing mixer and microphones.
