SOUND SYSTEMS

There are two different sound systems within the Brown Center.

  • The first is a speech sound amplification system to support lectures and presentations from microphones on stage. This system emphasizes high intelligibility and flat frequency response necessary to reinforce the human voice. The space and the acoustics of the room are not designed to provide sound reinforcement for large musical groups with electronic instruments or for orchestral performances. The system is designed to support smaller scale musical or theatrical performances. 8 Shure SM 58 and a 2 SM 57 Microphones are available for use, as well as a very limited number of mic stands and two stage monitors.
  • The second is a higher-powered full range system for the playback of prerecorded music. This is a multi-channel playback system including a traditional 5. l surround as well as additional surround EFX speakers that can be used in a variety of artistic applications. The system can support 5:1 audio for both DTS and Dolby Digital audio (6 channels of sound). It includes a left, center, right, surround left, surround right and sub-bass channel. These systems work in conjunction with the various video projection systems
