EAVP and Nexo bring even coverage to school theatre


Elite Audio Visual Productions (EAVP) has installed a Nexo Geo S12 line array system in the 900-seat Joy Shepherd Performing Arts theatre at St Hilda’s Anglican School for Girls in Perth. The venue serves as the school’s main auditorium for activities and productions, while also catering to external events when hired. The old sound system had started to develop problems and didn’t provide the even coverage and power needed for the theatre, which had a negative impact on external hires. Therefore, EAVP was commissioned to design and install the new solution.

Theatre manager David Spooner put together a project brief for EAVP that specified the need for a system that could be flown from the roof to save space on the ground; could facilitate all manner of events, from school assemblies to rock concerts; could ensure even coverage throughout the auditorium, on the ground and the balcony; and was from a reputable brand with easy access to parts and technical support.

After running acoustic simulations of the space, the EAVP team determined that in addition to two main PA hangs, front-fill speakers were required at the front of the orchestra pit and delay speakers were needed above the dress circle to deliver the desired coverage. The solution installed ultimately included six Geo S12 top boxes and two 18-inch LS18 subwoofers per side, along with three ID24 speakers for front-fill and four more as delays above the balcony. The entire system is driven by two Nexo NXAMP4x4 four-channel amplifiers, housed in new racks behind the proscenium.

‘The new sound system now gives us the flexibility that we need in the venue,’ said Spooner. ‘There is more than enough headroom in the equipment and I never have to push the system. I’ve yet to have a customer complain that the system was too loud or not loud enough, or that they were unable to hear a presenter, something that would happen regularly with the system that we replaced.’
