Kevin Andrew, Prince’s Hall’s technical director, sought a new Channel 38 compliant wireless mic solution for the venue, and chose a Shure ULX system from AC-ET. The A.C. Audio division provides a specialist service for a wide range of brands and has focussed on raising awareness of the forthcoming 'digital switchover'.
The 600 capacity hall is in use for most days of the year, hosting around 50 professional shows and over 40 performances of their annual pantomime, as well as numerous local community shows and events. Whilst wanting to upgrade the current microphone system, they also wanted to ensure that they were ready for the upcoming ‘digital switchover’.
AC-ET had supplied some equipment to Princes Hall in the past when an automated winch bar system was installed, but Andrew also knew the company from when he previously worked with various rental companies.
The purchase from AC-ET consisted of 13 Shure ULX1 bodypack transmitters and 13 Shure diversity ULXP4 receivers, plus 16 Shure cardiod condenser lapel mics, a set of headset mic capsules and eight Shure UR2 SM58 hand-held transmitter mics including the SM58 capsule. All equipment was supplied complete with distribution amps, antennas and cables.
