One of London’s most famed buildings, the Royal Institution of Great Britain, has installed QSC amplifiers and loudspeakers into its 18th-century Faraday Theater.

For more than 200 years, the Royal Institution has been at the center of scientific research and discoveries in England, including the discovery of sodium and potassium by Humphry Davy, and Michael Faraday’s early experiments in electro-magnetic induction. The Faraday Theater still hosts the Friday Evening Lectures, which began in 1826 by Faraday.

The steeply raked theater’s architecture seats 430 on two tiers, with a dedicated projection room and 6-meter screen. Sensitive to the English Heritage listing of the building, Surrey-based Harpers AV installed three pair of QSC’s AcousticDesign AD-S82 loudspeakers in strategic locations within the theater and gallery areas.

Harpers AV project manager Steve Baker also specified a pair of QSC ISA 280 amplifiers and a 24-channel Phonic mixer, with the networked system under Crestron control. “QSC products have always been bulletproof for us,” Baker said. “We’ve used their amps for many years. The speakers are fantastic for reproducing speech and playback, and the IntelliDock™ mounting system made installation very easy, since the speakers are all mounted very high in the air.”

“We had previously installed the AcousticDesign speakers at the Sheerwater Community Center,” remarked Ken Foster, Harpers AV’s managing director, “and everyone fell in love with them. So we felt confident they’d be right for the Faraday.”
