A/V integration firm CCS Presentations Systems brought in an assortment of JBL Control Contractor loudspeakers for the audio system install at Talking Stick Record (Scottsdale, Ariz.). CCS handled the sound “zones” for the 240,000 square feet of gaming, 5,000-square-foot/22-room conference center and 13,000-square-foot spa. Adding to this list, CCS had to contend with multiple surface types and ceiling heights, as well as the sound emanating from more than 800 slot machines. “When we initially examined the different rooms and surfaces, we thought we would have to go with several vendors to make it all come alive,” says Rod Andrewson, manager of engineering, CCS Presentation Systems. “However, during the design process, we realized JBL had a speaker for each of the necessary casino applications, which were all more economical and allowed us to meet the SPL requirements. We were able to produce the SPL more efficiently with less equipment.”

In more than 100 zones, CCS installed a total of 1,131 JBL Control Contractor speakers. The gaming zone features 222 Control 47CT small-format ceiling speakers that incorporate JBL’s proprietary RBI Radiation Boundary Integration. The conference center combines 154 of the 47CTs with four Control 26CT small-format speakers and 24 Control 322CT large-format speakers. The hotel area contains 197 of the Control 47CTs, plus six Control 25 AVs in those locations that required surface-mount speakers, and 52 Control 26CTs for lower-SPL and fill locations.
