John Kessler, managing consultant at IBM Global Services specified the design and selected the SLS speakers.
"The Founder's Room is a multipurpose room, so we knew the speakers had to be set into the walls," said Kessler. "We needed units that would give the most punch and best performance for their size. The SLS speakers gave us everything we considered necessary and more."
The SLS speakers were positioned in the four corners hidden behind acoustical fabric coverings, two left-right fronts and two left-right rears, in the reconfigurable room. The Founder's Room also features a surround sound system linked to the SLS units, which are used in sound reinforcement for live musicians, playback, presentations, etc.
"The whole project was complicated, but the biggest challenge was simply fitting everything in the limited space," said Frank Kelly, senior consultant for SPL Integrated Solutions. "One nice feature of the SLS speakers is that you can physically change the orientation and rotate them based on the physical constraints. I was favorably impressed with the SLS units."
"The S1065 is designed for high output, full range monitoring in two channel or multi-channel surround applications," says Jeff Lowry, director of marketing for SLS. "The S1065 brings enhanced monitoring capabilities to facilities that allow uncolored, full range sound reproductions in ever more complex mixing situations, such as the Founder's Room at MoMA."
