Honolulu, Hawaii. The Hawaiian Convention Center opened recently featuring an installation completed by Rhema Systems of Waipahu, Hawaii. The center is located at the intersection of Atkinson Street and Kalakaua Avenue and is the largest facility of its kind in the entire Hawaiian island chain. Audy Kimura, the audio consultant to the convention center was effusive in his praise of the Radian coaxial loudspeakers: “The loudspeakers we installed in the center needed to have the ability to project sound from a height of 33 feet and the Radians do that with ease.
The system was originally specified withanother brand that used a phenolic dome tweeter to reproduce the mid and high frequencies, but I strongly preferred the Radians in our application because of their clarity from that ceiling height. The Radians utilize a true 1” exit compression driver which gave us the articulation we required for clear reproduction of both speech and music. Another thing we like about the Radians is their conical dispersion pattern which provided us with uniform coverage in all planes.”
Rhema fitted the Radian 512/2’s into Atlas-Soundolier Q4712 ceiling cans along with the Radian 322/12 passive crossover networks and the Atlas-Soundolier HT-327 32 watt transformers. The entire facility is powered by Crown amplifiers and utilizes a Peavey Media Matrix control system.
