When Claytons Primary School asked Academy Audio to provide a sound and public address system for their "Best of British" summer fair we were more than happy to assist.

In the weeks leading up to the event we worked closely with the event organisers, understanding their requirements, and provided detailed layout drawings of where the equipment would be sited, detailing equipment and speaker placement, cable positioning and lengths of cable runs, as well as a providing a detailed scope of supply, which included a sound engineer to operate the equipment during the event.

As the event drew closer additions to the program were made and we provided a revised plan and scope of supply which was agreed upon before commencement of the event.

equipment during setupThe equipment was delivered and set up at the times detailed in the event plan and a final sound check was made well in advance of the event commencing.

We supplied four loudspeakers for the event, two of our Volt mid/tops provided sound for the main arena area and two slightly less powerful Proel speakers provided the side fill for the stalls along the side of the field, ensuring that all announcements were clearly audible throughout event perimeter.

one of our volt and proel speakersAmplification was supplied with the use of Crown and QSC amplifiers and a compressor/limiter was also supplied to smooth the speech and ensure that there were no extreme transient peaks in the signal, all routed through a Mackie DFX6 console.

The event itself went exactly as planned and timings for the different events and announcements were adhered to as detailed in the program. The compere used a Sennheiser wireless handheld microphone so that he could use this at all the events as well as provide a running commentary and do Q&As with the different stallholders, which worked extremely well. Two wired Shure SM58 microphones were also supplied.
