Adastra PA System for public announcements at the Lake District Coast Aquarium
The Lake District Coast Aquarium in Maryport contacted us as they were in need of an updated (public announcement) PA system, their existing PA equipment was underpowered and failing them.
Due to Covid-19 restrictions and new safety guidelines they had to have a fully functioning PA audio system in order to make important announcements to customers and staff.
THE PROJECT BRIEF:
This project required the ability to make public announcements in specific areas, and play pre-recorded messages throughout the day automatically. For example; social distancing reminders, closing times and safety announcements.
Being in a marine water environment with high humidity, the equipment also had to be moisture resistant using IP rated speakers were necessary.
EQUIPMENT CHOSEN FOR THE PROJECT:
4-ZONE PAGING MIXER AMPLIFER
The amplifier chosen to power this PA system was the Adastra RM244V. Which offers excellent value for money with its 5 channels and 4 zone mixer capabilities and individual volume control for each zone.
This multi-zone paging amplifier gave them the ability to make announcements in 4 different areas/zones individually which was ideal as the aquarium has it’s main visitor areas for aquatic viewing, plus a café and restaurant areas.
DIGITAL AUTOMATED MESSAGING UNIT
Next up was the Adastra DM-8 professional announcement system, a huge step up from the unreliable method being used before (playing a message from a smartphone). The DM-8 can play a message automatically at predetermined times of the day without any manual human intervention. Giving a safe, professional environment for aquarium visitors.
CALL STATION & PAGING MICROPHONE
Then a Adastra CS4 call station & Paging microphone was chosen to help make the announcements crystal clear, easy to make and sound very professional.
WALL MOUNT SPEAKERS
For the speakers, we decided to use the excellent Adastra BH5V, IP44 moisture-resistant wall-mount speakers.
Being a compact design, these speakers offered an easy installation process around the aquarium as they could be placed in the most ideal locations to be heard clearly. Most importantly, the Adastra BH5V speakers are IP44 moisture resistant, ensuring they can withstand and continue to operate as normal in this high humidity environment, producing clear, high-quality audio for many years to come.
Professional Audiokraft Apollo speaker cable was chosen because of its strength and durability. Thanks to the thick insulation of the cable and the number of copper strands inside, it allowed for longer speaker runs to be made with no loss of volume or audio quality, and withstand any installation stress like being pulled tight or bent, ensuring a long, safe lifespan.
In summary, This Adastra PA System is the perfect choice for just about any commercial premises who need to make important announcements to customers and staff. It has a lot of functionality and flexibility for a great price.
