GREAT PLAY (by Audio Video Interiors)

Audio Video Interiors (Middleburg Heights, OH) Presents:

“Great Play”, Electronic House Home of The Year 2011 – “Amazing Apps” Silver Award Winner

“Say you’re an avid sports fan and you want the biggest and loudest theater possible. Check. Home system design and installation company Audio Video Interiors (AVI) of Middleburg Heights, Ohio, will tune up a rockin’ JBL Synthesis speaker system that will make you feel every bone-crunching gridiron hit.” (Electronic House Article, 2011)

“And what great audio it is. According to Jason Spence at AVI, the JBL Synthesis system is a hybrid of sorts, using the K2 S9900 front-channel floorstanding speakers placed behind the screen and three pairs of S4Ai in-wall surrounds, all located behind some of the fabric squares that make up the sides the theater. Six Synthesis subwoofers were also installed to fill the room with serious bass thumps.” (Electronic House Article, 2011)

“For the amps that drive the speakers, AVI opted for four 3-channel No. 533H amplifiers from premier high-end line Mark Levinson—along with the Mark Levinson No. 502 preamp—and added oomph with 800-watt subwoofer amps from Synthesis. Nothing against the Synthesis amps that in many cases are used with the JBL speaker package, but “with the Mark Levinson electronics, the dynamics and amplification really stand out in clarity of the sound,” says Spence.” (Electronic House Article, 2011)

“How do you get the sound right in a room with nine speakers, six powerful subwoofers, and varied ceiling heights? Fortunately, the JBL Synthesis speaker system comes with a calibration kit that includes 10 microphones and a digital signal processor (DSP) to calibrate the sound perfectly. It took electronics design and installation company Audio Video Interiors (AVI) of Middleburg Heights, Ohio, two days of tuning, but the effort convinced the crew to move two subwoofers from behind the screen to below it to preclude boomy sounds in some parts of the rooms and nulls in others. “Bass is the hardest aspect of a room to get right,” says Jason Spence of AVI.” (Electronic House Article, 2011)
