Technical Aspects


Sound Reinforcement

With amazing acoustics, shows from the Port Angeles Symphony (without any sound reinforcement)
to Arlo Guthrie, Judy Collins and the Irish Tenors, Irish Rovers, Harlem Gospel Choir, Barrage, Cirque Zuma,
Glenn Miller Orchestra and many more (with reinforcement)
have produced wonderful shows in the Port Angeles Performing Arts Center.

In it's basic setup, the hall includes a Mackie FX Pro-22 with a 16 x 4 snake leading
to the stage right side of the stage behind the proscenium. The snake (with 16 inputs and 4 outputs)
with a stage box at stage right will be adequate for many shows. 2 Mackie 450's mounted on the ceiling FOH
as well as 2
JBL PRX735 three-way full range main speakers
on the side walls of the auditorium provide great sound with minimum feedback.

From the Mackie mixer, we can have 2 monitor mixes to 2 Peavey wedges on stage for stage monitors. 

Inventory of Microphones are 2 wireless hand held, 6 Shure SM-58's with stands and 2 SM-81s for instrument micing.

The production console including light and sound control is located
in the house to stage left of center.

Speaker clusters are many times added to stage left and right
to augment or replace the overhead Mackie Cluster and JBLs.

For more monitor mixes, or larger groups requiring more equipment, the renting group will need to provide their own equipment and operator.


The stage lighting is controlled by an ETC Element 60-250.

The chart below shows channel/circuit numbers/addresses for all lights FOH
as well as over stage.

Currently all lights except LEDs are conventional lights with gel frames.
6 LED lights are over the apron to give
the console addressable colors to wash the stage.

All lights are dead hung, and over stage lights are reachable from rolling scaffold from stage.
Torm lights are accessible from ladder, and ceiling positions are accessible from attic.
These ceiling light positions are very hard to reach, and generally don't get gelled.
