Preliminary rigging for NEC's Jordan Hall

We designed and have installed the first phase of rigging for three permanently installed Fulcrum Acoustic AH65 speakers in New England Conservatory’s Jordan Hall. This image below shows the electric chain hoist in position above the hole in the proscenium arch. The hole has a temporary cover over it until the speakers are installed in March. As this is a historic concert hall, putting a large slot in the ceiling was demanding.

The new steel support beam had to be threaded through a lot of old steel and a Servoreeler installation.

Our economical design uses only a single chain hoist and some customized versions of Polar Focus speaker rigging hardware.
