A total of 26 loudspeakers—including 12 ALA-5 Line Array loudspeakers, eight AE-2 Wide-Angle Loudspeakers and six SSM Compact Loudspeakers—from Apogee Sound International were used to provide sound reinforcement in the studio during the 38th annual Jerry Lewis MDA Telethon held on Labor Day weekend.

The result was a “grand success,” according to Bruce Burns, president of Innovative Audio Technologies Inc. and audio coordinator of the Telethon for the past 23 years. “I got a letter from the producers congratulating us on the great sound and flawless performance of the system and the crew. They said it was the finest sound they’ve ever had for this event.”

Burns contracted with ProMix/PRG to provide the house system, which was designed by engineer Bill Daly. Daly, who has worked as a system sound designer and live mixer for TV shows Survivor, Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune, noted that the Apogee line array speakers were used for the Telethon from 1998 through 2001. “Another manufacturer’s speakers were used for last year’s show, but the coverage was uneven and the sound quality was not nearly as good,” Daly said, “so the producers asked us to use the Apogee line array again this year.”
