AC-ET provided a full sound system upgrade for Brighton's Rpoedean School
UK - A.C. Entertainment Technologies (AC-ET) Ltd. recently supplied a full audio system solution upgrade - including Traction Sound loudspeakers and an Allen & Heath mixing console - to the prestigious Roedean School in Brighton, UK.

Founded in 1898, Roedean is regarded as one of the UK's leading girls' schools, catering for day, weekly boarding and full boarding pupils between the ages of 11 and 18.

Ben Losh, Roedean Theatre's technical manager first approached AC-ET's Glen Thompson shortly after visiting their stand at PLASA. Impressed with their access to a wide selection of leading audio brands, Ben came to Glen looking for a new, discreet audio system that would provide even coverage, sufficient low end and vocal clarity for their performance theatre.

After hearing Ben's system requirements, Glen recommended Brighton-based loudspeaker manufacturer, Traction Sound for their innovative 'long throw' Soft Dome Source (SDS) technology, sonic purity and extremely competitive pricing.

Glen coordinated an on-site demonstration at Roedean's theatre, which was led by Traction Sound's Shreddie Glew and Andy Pardoe, allowing Ben to hear for himself the power and quality behind the brand.

"Within minutes, I knew that I had to have this system...I was completely blown away by the capabilities of the speakers" Ben states.

Ten Traction Sound speakers were specified for the new sound system, comprising of six SDS 8i Gobi's - four out-front, and two for side-fill; two SDS 6i Nibblers for front-fill; and two BP 12 Cubs for low-end.

Utilising Traction Sound's proprietary SDS technology, both Gobi and Nibbler speakers offer an uncompressed, non-distorted output that throws to the back of the room, "and then some."

Included in the supply from AC-ET was an Allen & Heath iLive T80 mixing surface and iDR-32 MixRack, which was chosen for its intuitive and flexible control platform, ideal for any learning environment.
