However, due to city funding through a capital improvements plan,
technical director Jason Huffman and the rest of the theater management
were able to scratch the old system and bring the auditorium to the
current state of the art. MSM Systems (Lawrence, Ks.; www.msmsystemsinc.com) was brought in to design and
install the audio gear, which comprises a Yamaha M7CL-48 using CobraNet

MM4-XP Miniature Speaker
Only four inches square, the MM-4XP miniature loudspeaker from Meyer Sound is the
powered version of the company's MM-4. The MM-4XP has all amplification
and corrective processing onboard, and receives 48 VDC from an external
power supply on a 5-pin EN3 connector that also carries balanced audio.
The unit's high intelligibility and flat phase/frequency response is
well suited for limited space or where visibility is a factor (such as
fill and spot coverage), for installation in steps and other hidden
locations, and for stage-lip front-fill and as a small portable P.A. Its
4-inch driver is capable of 113dB max peak SPLs with a 120-18k Hz
