The 101-year-old Northwestern College has purchased eight Lake Contour™ digital speaker processors for its Maranatha Hall performance venue.

Maranatha Hall is a 1,390-seat facility with full proscenium stage located in the Totino Fine Arts Center, home of the school's art and music departments. Maranatha Hall audio systems engineer John Rehorst said that the eight Lake Contour units will be used for house system processing in the performance hall. "It's part of a larger project of refitting the whole front of house area, and then starting to build in some of the infrastructure that was never built when the hall was first constructed," he explained. "There are six EAW KF650s that make up the main left and right arrays. There are four EAW JF50s across the front of the stage, which are the frontfills. Then there are six SB600s for subs. The hall is a fan shape, so along the rear seating areas, there are four JF260s that make a rear delay ring that will probably use the first four Lake Contour processors." Crest 7001, MA2402 and CA Series power amplifiers are used throughout.

"Because we're doing so many transitions and so many people are adding or subtracting to the system at whim, the flexibility of the Contour units was one of the big selling points," Rehorst said. "It's just so easy to reconfigure using the Lake Contour."
