Clegg Sound Associates, LLC partnered with the Lowther Creative Group. Lowther Creative Group are the owners and creatives behind the famous Haunted Overload Halloween Attraction in Lee, NH.
Clegg Sound provided a centralized, integrated, and scalable solution for playback of audio tracks all over the show. With plans to scale and grow the audio system in future seasons, we purveyed a "one button" solution to engage the entire show with multiple zones of audio playing out to speakers and subwoofers placed throughout the show
Audio files are played via QLab software by Figure53 and routed through a Dante audio network using Dante Virtual Soundcard by Audinate. Clegg Sound built custom Qlab show files specifically designed for Haunted Overload's usage, keeping content onscreen organized and easy to follow. A Yamaha TF-Rack digital mixer is used to do the mixing/matrixing to Yamaha PX series amplifiers. The amps then feed Yamaha Speakers and QSC subwoofers which are strategically placed throughout the attraction to create different "zones" of audio. The system is equipped with WiFi capabilities to allow for remote level adjustment throughout the attraction wirelessly via an Apple iPad or similar device.
Speakers & subwoofers are all fed via thousands of feet of direct burial grade, multi conductor speaker wire terminated to weather proof conduit boxes with NL4 SpeakON connections that are strategically mounted throughout the attraction. Having a disconnection point between the boxes and the speakers makes them easy to disconnect and bring indoors for the offseason.
This system is fully scalable up to 64 independent zones of ambient and/or triggered audio playback. This would not be possible without our custom, organized infrastructure and custom designed/built equipment racks. The Dante networking and playback computers feature fully redundant Primary and Secondary independent networks to ensure that in the event of a failure, no sound is lost.
Bringing an unmatched level of production value to this themed attraction was a fun and rewarding project for Clegg Sound Associates. We can't wait to work more with Haunted Overload and other themed attractions in the future to develop custom solutions that are reliable, scalable, integrated, and automated.
