A Q-Combo 2 Kit (two Model Q-12 Soundsphere loudspeakers on a special array bracket), were mounted 25 ft. (7.6m) above the floor in a gymnasium with a reverberation time of 2.2 seconds at 1 kHz.
  • A single Soundsphere® loudspeaker can cover a gym up to 100 ft. x 100 ft. (30m x 30m) with full frequency sound. Q-combo kits make it easy to install multiple speakers for more sound pressure level and extended coverage.
  • A sub bass speaker is available for extended low frequency performance.
  • No hot spots; no dead spots in coverage area.
  • Light weight of Soundsphere® speakers and Q-Combo kits allow placement flexibility and quick, easy retrofit or new installation.
  • A single source of sound, easily facilitated with Soundsphere® speakers and Q-Combo kits, is often desirable for good intelligibility in spaces with poor acoustics.
  • Rugged fiberglass enclosures withstand impact from sports implements such as basketballs, hockey pucks, etc.
  • A Soundsphere® system can produce both dramatic music and good voice intelligibility without complex design and engineering.
  • Standard and custom colors are available to match decor.

Why Choose a Soundsphere Loudspeaker

Q: We have two big speakers mounted on the walls of our gym. When we use the sound system, there is so much echo that we can’t understand what is being said. The system installer says we need more speakers and more amplifiers, but the cost is way over our budget. Do you have any ideas?

A: Adding more speakers to your system will not necessarily raise speech intelligibility. In all likelihood, it will be further degraded. A single Soundsphere Q-12A in the center of the room will produce even coverage of voice and quality music at high sound pressure levels. A single, central source is the best solution for good speech intelligibility in a reverberant environment like your gym. You should be able to use the existing amplifier, and the reasonable cost fo the installed Soundsphere speaker should meet your budget requirements.
