“For the Apollo, our objective was to achieve 270 degrees in the horizontal plane, while ensuring adequate vertical coverage without the need for additional front fill speakers,” explains Bilgore. “In addition, we also needed to deliver maximum intelligibility, since this is a very ‘live’ room that has to work for a variety of performance styles.”

Sensorium’s design consists of four clusters of eight VUE al-4 subcompact line array elements. The four arrays are carefully positioned around the extended main stage to deliver 270-degree coverage. “The beryllium HF drivers in the VUE systems deliver dynamic range and a level of intelligibility simply unmatched,” remarked Bilgore. “Plus, the al-4’s coverage is so well controlled, that we were easily able to ensure ideal vertical coverage, while avoiding the overspill that was troublesome with the previous system.”
