After some time of deliberation the famous Younger Hall at St Andrews University has opted for a JBL CBT (Constant Beamwidth Technology) system installed by Audio Light Systems ltd.
Throughout the year the hall provides the venue for world famous ceremonies and requires exceptional quality & clarity to meet the demands that such a space requires.
The JBL CBT speakers are particularly well suited to this type of system with their Asymmetrical vertical coverage & vertical pattern coverage switchable between 45° and 25°.
This provided Audio Light Systems the opportunity to design a system with accurate sound coverage using the flatter dispersion for the long throw balcony speakers reducing reflections.
“The system really sounded clear & solid but also had a very minimal impact on an architecturally sensitive hall”
