Assembly Hall Renovation
Posted February 3, 2013 at 12:00 AM
Sweetwater recently teamed up with All Pro Sound, a live sound installation company based out of Pensacola, Florida, on a overhaul of the Assembly Hall facility at Indiana University. The renovation took place in just 19 days, with all of the work being performed at night to accommodate the IU practice schedule. This was the first significant upgrade to the sound system since Assembly Hall was opened in the early 1970s, and needless to say the new system has caused a significant improvement in the sound of the venue. We're especially proud to have been involved with this project due to IU being located just down the road from Sweetwater's Fort Wayne campus.
