Leicestershire, U.K. - Hawthorn Theatrical recently specified Martin Audio AQ speakers exclusively in their design model for some of the new City Academies.

Hawthorn Theatrical will provide a full technical infrastructure, consisting of sound, light, projection and control. The most recently-commissioned system was at Northampton Academy, which has been designed around four spaces-the main assembly hall, two drama studios and a dance studio.

"We have gotten to know the Martin Audio line well and know what the product can do," stated Hawthorn's installation manager, Simon Ling. "Not only does it provide a highly flexible solution, but the AQ boxes are relatively compact, quick to install and are aesthetically pleasing." He also said that working alongside architects the color was critical, and the AQ's factory finish provided the perfect match.

In the main 350-capacity assembly hall the system is comprised of a pair of AQ15s, four AQ12s (as delays) and a pair of AQ212 subs. Aside from requiring a high degree of speech intelligibility, the main hall will also feature music presentation and the screening of films, all of which are within the scope of the AQ series.
