Audio production specialist Price Stevenson Acoustic Research (PSAR) has provided a new Biamp Community IV6 system for Rose Tree Park’s Summer Festival in Media, Pennsylvania.
The Summer Festival is a series of forty-five wide-ranging concerts, held in Rose Tree Park’s scenic outdoor amphitheater. The festival began in 1975 as part of a two-year Bicentennial Celebration, and four decades later it remains a popular local tradition. The concerts run over a nine-week period and provide the local community with an opportunity to take in top quality music and dance performances of all genres, including classical, Cajun, Motown, Broadway, doo wop, rock, pop, and everything in between. The sponsored concerts are managed by Delaware County Parks and Recreation and provided to visitors for free.
Price Stevenson of PSAR explained, “Biamp’s Community R2 loudspeakers have served us well in the amphitheater for decades. The company has always produced the finest in high-quality, weather-resistant equipment and now it has introduced the opportunity to upgrade from the previous horn-loaded systems to an outdoor line array, with the Community IV6 modular vertical array.”
Stevenson continued, “The amphitheater has a capacity of approximately 4,000 with a wide audience area that naturally suits the dispersion characteristics of the vertical array. We could also provide a more aesthetically elegant solution with custom Polar Focus mountings on each side of the stage. So, after consultation with Biamp’s technical support team, we designed the optimal system with two arrays, each comprising four Community IV6-1122/05WR and one IV6-1122/15WR all-weather wide-dispersion 12-inch two-way array elements. The new system delivers more even coverage and has brought us up to date with the latest advances in sound technology. The sound quality, SPL and frequency response consistency throughout the audience area are excellent.”
Marc Manfre, Director of Delaware County Parks and Recreation, commented, “The sound results are fantastic and the transition from the previous system went flawlessly. It will ensure that we can continue to present top-notch music and entertainment programs to our audiences for years to come.”
Beth Chapman, the Park’s Department Marketing and Communications Manager, agreed, “Getting the new system was very exciting, and we‘ve received excellent feedback from both performers and audiences. Everyone is really happy with the sound and we thank Price Stevenson who, with Biamp’s Community loudspeakers, has provided a great new system.”
