ABD Engineering and Design offered independent consulting services in architectural acoustics and audio-visual design for the, Chalevoix Band Shell Amphitheatre in Charlevoix, Michigan. Our professional engineers developed a comprehensive plan to address all relevant acoustical and audio-visual issues at the site, rendering it fit for a wide variety of performances and events.
Speakers were hidden in the brick columns flanking the stage for aesthetics as well as weather protection. A Christie LX120 projector was installed to provide viewing options for images or films during evening events. Our final report included specifications for the audio, video, and lighting systems as well as specifications for construction features that would maximize the acoustical qualities of the shell. The end result was a classy outdoor performance space that looks great and sounds even better.
