Sweetwater and ADAM Audio Equip Multiple Surround Suites in North Carolina
(Fort Wayne, Ind.) The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and its partner organization Samaritan's Purse both have demanding video and audio production schedules. When they needed to outfit their Pro Tools and Avid suites with new monitors, they chose ADAM Audio for uncompromised quality and Sweetwater for personal service.

The all-new BGEA studios in Charlotte, N.C., include two Pro Tools suites - one surround, one stereo - and four Avid units, with two surround stations. Sweetwater Sales Engineer Paul Rowan recounted, "It was important for them to have consistency between the two facilities, and the ADAM S3As provide that consistency." In addition, each surround system was augmented with Sub 10 subwoofers.

A viewing room at the BGEA facility has been similarly equipped with an ADAM surround system. The stereo rooms were set up with 2.1 configurations using the S3As and Sub 10s.

At the Samaritan's Purse facilities in Boone, N.C., the ADAMs replaced venerable Yamaha NS10s in their Avid rooms and Pro Tools suite. "We are very happy with the sound quality of these speakers," said Ray Caudill of Samaritan's Purse. "We are planning to upgrade the Pro Tools suite to surround using ADAM monitors."

During their selection process, Caudill and Samaritan's Purse staffers considered other high-end monitors before ultimately deciding upon ADAM speakers. Rowan worked to ensure that multiple deliveries of the speakers went smoothly. "Paul has been excellent to work with," Caudill said. Rowan added, "I've handled orders from them ranging from a few mic stands up to this major purchase. It's important to me that customers know they can count on me no matter what they need." The Billy Graham Association has been a Sweetwater customer since 1998.

The total number of installed speakers amounted to thirty-one S3As and five Sub10s. The order also included two ANF10 passive monitors and two SubP passive subs.
