Since we can safely assume that you've been inside an elementary school at some point in your life, we can also assume that you are familiar with those funny room combinations called "cafetoriums" – a lunch room and auditorium rolled into one. This sample application illustrates a possible Mongoose system that would serve such a space.
This cafetorium is used for school plays and other performances and functions. Audio requirements are:
In this example, the Mongoose is a wise choice because it provides the school with tremendous flexibility and extensibility. While delivering superb sound quality in the cafetorium, it also ties in with the existing school paging system, and provides the possibility of additional functionality in the future (as new RADs are introduced).
This application contains a total of five RADs, therefore only one Mongoose is needed. The Mongoose is housed in a sound equipment room along with a network switch and a CobraNet DSP box that contains a microphone auto-mixer.
The Mongoose configuration file for this example application can be downloaded here: cafetorium.mgs. Following is a screen shot of the configuration's main window, including the routing matrix:
