The first new speaker for the Space Theater

Here comes the first new speaker! It was manufactured by QSC Audio and made entirely in the USA in Orange County.

Only 1 inch clearance at the top of the forks as the first speaker arrives.

We had to mount these speakers at the Zenith, the very top of the catwalk – BEFORE the dome can be installed! But first we had to get it up there.

A black and tackle, using mechanical advantage very effectively allowed us to pull it up.

It’s firmly attached to the catwalk now, along with the second cabinet that contains the two mid range speakers.

Developed specifically for the unique requirements of professional motion picture playback, the SC-424 extends QSC’s commitment to the cinema market. As a member of the DCS Digital Cinema Speaker Series, the SC-424 is a four-way, selectable tri or quad-amplified screen channel loudspeaker system comprised of two main units – the MHV-1090 midhigh- very high-frequency system and the LF-4215 low-frequency system.

Our speakers have been modified and the 2 high drivers and horns are located in a sturdy birch cabinet. “Fly Points” have been added to safely allow the speaker cabinets to be “flown” via standard sound system procedures.

Once the dome is completed, the remaining speakers will be mounted on a unique rail system developed by Spitz, Inc and they will roll up the side of the dome. The rails will allow the speakers to be accessed for maintenance.
