New theatre and rehearsal spaces completed in 2015.
An adaptive reuse project giving a new life to the old Bendigo Jail, a new 1,000 seat theatre with rehearsal spaces and classrooms represents a significant investment in education and the arts in regional Victoria.
The loudspeaker system is a basic stereo arrangement of d&b V-series loudspeakers in 6-element lines either side of stage, a single Yi10P downfill per side 4S front fill's, 8S under-balcony delays and a centre array of 6 V-Subs. A pair of front fill loudspeaker systems are installed, one in the stage front and an additional set in the stage extension / lift which is also the orchestra pit. The systems are switched to suit the placement of the stage extension.
Audio Control System
The audio control system was a combination of reused equipment from existing stock and additional new equipment to enhance the functionality to suit the needs of the facility. The console is a Yamaha CL5 with various io frames connected on a dual-redundant DANTE network. A BSS BLU326 takes care of some basic DSP and signal routing and provide AES/EBU outputs to the d&b amplifiers.
