When it came to looking for a total audio solution for the gymatorium at the British International School of Chicago, Skokie-based Sound, Production and Lighting turned to RCF and Danley for the solution. "Our goal was to make it NOT a gym, says owner Matt Gajowniczek. "With the variety of performances from concerts to convocations, athletic events to assemblies, we needed to cover the range of events the system required." Utilizing a dozen RCF C3310-96 speakers downfired from the roof joists they were able to zone the system into a number of configurations dependent on event and seating layout. The 10" two-way passive cabinets with a 90x60 pattern provided smooth coverage throughout the room. A main cluster of three Danley SH46, 40x60 Synergy horns, is designed to provide main coverage for the bleachers in theater mode. Sound, Production and Lighting (www.spl-design.com) is a full service rental, production, design and consulting company specializing on the needs of the entertainment industry. "We have been in business for a little over five years at this point and have handled a variety of installations," notes Gajowniczek. "This range of projects has given us the experience and the ability to look at a space and imagine all the potential options, and more importantly, realizing the potential areas where the venue will grow in the future, which is a key component of designing a scalable system that gets the most value for the client." The result at the British International School achieved exactly what SPL had set out to do - it is not a gym, but a complete performing arts and athletic facility.
