The intention of the upgrade was not only to replace tired equipment, but to provide a greater technology platform for the creative delivery of educational seminars by the Questacon Excited Particles; an award winning performance team who deliver over 1,300 shows per year in the facility. The audio system is based on a 7.1 surround sound layout with the option for 16 channel sound field usage for specially created presentations. A pair of subwoofers are installed under the seating to provide the massive energy required to simulate a rocket launch.
