In 2013 our school embarked on a project to renovate our 40 year old gymnasium. The facility was stripped back to the bare iron and we basically started over from scratch with new synthetic floors, new lighting, new walls, new electrical, new HVAC, and a totally new data/CCTV/audio infrastructure. Our architect made a recommendation for Octasound – not being familiar with the product we reached out directly to Octasound and immediately got a friendly & knowledgeable voice on the phone, Ron Bull, President. We described our project – a ~8,800SF gym and eventually decided to go with the SP840A speaker (maybe a little overkill for our gym but down here in the South bigger is always better!). The speaker itself is very well made and sturdy – definitely able to withstand the errant ball here and there. The sound is incredible – very crisp and clear voices and an impressive sound-stage even for mono. For such a large space we were surprised by the low-end. Everyone has been extremely impressed. School spirit rallies have been invigorated by the Octasound SP840 - revving up our Pre K – 8th graders and pumping up the energy levels. We would highly recommend Octasound to anyone considering new audio for projects where this is a fit.
