Riverton Unified School District Ups Its Game with Ashly Gear in Its New Gymnasium

RIVERTON, KANSAS – DECEMBER 2017: Riverton is a small, unincorporated farming and bedroom community tucked into the southeast corner of Kansas, within commuting distance of Joplin, Missouri and other larger cities. Riverton Unified School District draws students from a large area, and many of those students compete on the Riverton Rams basketball, wrestling, volleyball, and gymnastics teams. In support of those teams, Riverton High School recently completed a new, state-of-the-art gymnasium with more extensive seating. The school district hired Joplin-based A/V integration firm Total Electronics Contracting (TEC) to design and install a high-impact sound reinforcement system for the new gymnasium. Nate Pugh, TEC audio/video project manager, turned to Ashly Audio for reliable, affordable, and easy-to-use amplifiers, DSP, and wall-mounted user interfaces. 

The new gymnasium has permanent balcony seating, plus rollaway bleachers on either side of the court. In addition, overflow audio addresses folks who are in the foyer just outside the gymnasium. “The Riverton staff wanted a system that could flexibly accommodate all of the various uses they plan for the gymnasium, but they also wanted a system that would be intuitive and easy to operate for non-technical staff,” explained Pugh. “Using Ashly Audio’s well-integrated DSP and customizable user-interface technology allowed us to give the staff various ‘scenes’ for different event types that turned on appropriate inputs and loudspeakers. For example, when they use the gymnasium floor for events with live mics, they can select a scene that mutes the down-firing speakers to avoid feedback issues.”
