Today was an interesting day at the CRAS. A host of audio pros from the University of Arizona in Tucson, about 90 miles south of Phoenix, came to hear and evaluate our L-Acoustics Kudo line array system. The world-class speaker rig hangs in our 6,000 sq. ft. Live Sound classroom where each student learns the operation and setup of the system. The University is considering Kudo as a live sound reinforcement solution for the U of A’s Centennial Hall. The Hall opened in 1937 and now serves as a concert venue hosting the likes of Herbie Hancock, Martha Graham’s Dance Company, Wynton Marsalis and others. It has been repurposed and renovated several times and has presented an acoustical challenge as it was first designed as a lecture hall.
