Marquee AV

Tonbridge School

One of this country’s leading boy’s boarding schools, the internationally respected Tonbridge School, opened its Sports and Media Centre with paging and background music systems designed and installed by Marquee AV.

The magnificent £10.7 million Sports and Media Centre was funded by the Tonbridge School Foundation and accommodates budding Olympiads from both the school and local community. The Centre, opened by Sebastian Coe, houses a six-lane swimming pool, an indoor sports hall, a fitness suite, function room and a media suite that will allow the school to transmit live coverage of sports events.

Marquee was asked to design and install the paging and background music systems for the upper ground floor fitness centre, upper ground floor multi-purpose room and upper ground floor bar and café. A paging microphone installed at the reception desk controls all paging via a mixer in the main rack.

With a range of different acoustics, Marquee designers were very selective in the choice of loudspeakers to ensure audio quality, intelligibility and coverage. Penton ceiling loudspeakers were installed in the dressing rooms, offices and other areas, with local 100V line volume controls. In the sports hall Marquee chose Soundtube HP12i loudspeakers, which are ideal for the application, and in the pool they used QSC AD-S82H loudspeakers. With good build quality and acoustic output Marquee AV also used QSC AD-S82H loudspeakers in the fitness centre, multi-purpose room and bar and café, which had the added advantage of giving a uniformity of style and quality throughout these areas of the complex.
