The Milton Rooms unveils state-of-the-art sound system

The Milton Rooms, in Malton, has become a small-town venue with a world class sound system, after completing its most recent phase of regeneration.

A.C. Entertainment Technologies Ltd, in collaboration with installers North Star Engineers, were entrusted with designing a new PA system after an independent assessment concluded the venue needed expert advice to overcome its poor acoustics.

AC-ET calculated the best options for the new sound system using NEXO’s NS-1 acoustic prediction software, which enables users to configure their speaker placement in any venue setup, and then predict the optimal sound coverage for the audience.

To deliver the optimal audio for the space, a NEXO GEO M10 line array system with NEXO P10 speakers used as delays, and DAD stage monitors all controlled by an Allen & Heath Avantis console were installed. Numerous NEXO ID speakers were also deployed as front fills and to feed audio into the venue’s side bar and foyer.

A truss grid above the main hall floor using Sixty82 M29, Columbus McKinnon D8+ Lodestar hoists with Tourflex Cabling, Out Board LV6 motor controller and Broadweigh 4.75t wireless shackles completed the installation.

Oliver Stables of The Milton Rooms said,

“The new audio setup has been a huge success and has made such a difference to the quality of the sound produced for our audiences.

“Every band and artist who has performed at our venue has commented that the standard of this equipment rates with the big arenas they have performed in across the country. High praise indeed.”

AC-ET’s Steve Eaton who planned the audio system said,

“Following the initial site visit it was apparent that the NEXO GEO M10 system would be a perfect solution for the venue. This was confirmed by NEXO’s NS-1 software and The Milton Rooms now has a very enviable sound system.”
