Tensor Go performs at Tring Park School

UK – Tring Park School for the Performing Arts is an independent, co-educational day and boarding school in Hertfordshire, UK. As a specialist provider of vocational training in the performing arts, the school offers courses that include dance, acting, commercial music and musical theatre, as well a full academic syllabus from Preparatory to A-Level.
It is one of only 21 schools selected to allocate government-funded Dance and Drama Awards, a scholarship scheme designed to subsidise the cost of professional dance and drama training for the most talented students at leading institutions. Since 1945, the school has been located in Tring Park Mansion, originally designed by Sir Christopher Wren and formerly occupied by the Rothschild family.
Audio technology plays a vital role in many areas of the school’s curriculum, particularly where its vocational courses are concerned, and the school recently took the decision to modernise its approach to provision for its many rehearsal rooms. Tring Park contacted regular supplier Studiospares of Luton for advice about easy to operate, flexible and portable systems that could deliver high-quality audio in often large reverberant spaces.
Greg Niedzwiecki, pro audio sales at Studiospares, recommended the versatile HH Electronics Tensor Go, a powerful portable PA system that can be operated cable-free thanks to its high-capacity integrated lithium-ion battery.
With four-channel integrated mic/line mixing functionality, high-grade balanced ¼ inch/XLR combination input connections, and a studio quality digital reverb, the Tensor Go has 4 professionally voiced presets – music, live, natural and speech which optimise its characteristics for different applications.
“The school had existing ‘installed’ systems and needed something a lot more flexible that could be used in several spaces,” comments Greg. “Having suggested the HH Tensor Go, we arranged an on-site demonstration in one of their dance rooms with some of the staff who’d potentially be using the systems. This enabled them to experience the unit’s punchy sound and see just how easily it could be set up and operated. The Go’s Bluetooth connectivity was another big plus – again quick and easy for staff and students to use.”
Following the demo, it was clear to the staff that the Tensor Go would not only comfortably cater for the rehearsal spaces they had in mind, but thanks to the flexibility and easy portability on offer, could also be deployed for outdoor live performances, small events and presentations.
Ultimately, the Tensor Go could be used as an all-rounder wherever quality audio was required on the site. Tring Park School invested in 10 x Tensor Go units.
Technician James Smith comments: “The units, which sound fantastic, provide us with portable, flexible audio that is ideal for our requirements in every area of the school. They’re quick and easy to set up, and represent great value for money. We’re very pleased with our investment in Tensor Go.”

HH Electronics refreshes Audio Works

UK – Located in Northampton, Audio Works is a dedicated rehearsal facility catering for every kind of artist, from absolute beginner to seasoned professional. With three soundproofed rehearsal rooms and a wide range of leading brand back-line and drum-kits available for clients’ use, this popular facility has gone from strength to strength since it opened in 2010.
A little over two years ago, Audio Works was taken over by new owners who, while retaining the key features that had been essential in creating the studio’s great reputation, wished to refresh and add a new dimension to the business. Having redecorated and re-lit the rehearsal spaces and added a fully-equipped daytime meeting space to their offer, the Audio Works team also took the decision to upgrade their audio systems.
Director at Audio Works, Andy Labrum, invested in an HH Electronics solution, choosing loudspeakers from the UK manufacturer’s Tensor range:
“I’m keen to make sure that bands visiting Audio Works have the best possible experience from the minute they enter – that obviously has to include fantastic audio systems. A couple of members of my own band had seen a demo of the HH Tensor Series and were raving about it. With that kind of enthusiasm, I thought I’d better check it out for myself and wasn’t disappointed.”
Each of the three rehearsal rooms at Audio Works was equipped with two Tensor TRE-1201 12” active loudspeakers and two TRS1500 active subs, to provide a robust solution that delivers exceptional performance and reliability. The Tensor range was created in 2020 by HH with two key focus points in mind – premium audio performance and fantastic value for money, making it the perfect choice for applications like Audio Works, where great sound is essential but budgets can be tight.
Andy continues: “The speakers sound incredible, whatever the style or genre of music going through the system. Whether it’s a full-on band really going for it, someone using to backing tracks, or playing gentle acoustic material, the clarity and depth of sound is stunning – the response from musicians using the rooms has been excellent.”
Audio Works continues to develop its offering, and has diversified into providing office space on a newly constructed mezzanine which is currently being used by a local charity. A new online booking system has made access to the facilities easier, enabling the operation to run more efficiently, and now equipped with premium HH Electronics audio systems, the future for this popular Northampton rehearsal venue looks bright.

HH Electronics Delivers For BASE Culture Live Venue In England

The new HH Electronics TNA line arrays in place at the live venue at BASE Culture Music Group in Yorkshire.

 

CEO Mike Krompass designs system headed by TNA line arrays to support local community-driven events and assist in the development of local independent artists.

BASE Culture Music Group, a record company and music distribution and publishing company in Yorkshire, England that also runs a professional sound recording and mix studio, recently implemented a new audio system in its coffee/wine bar and live music venue that utilizes HH Electronics TNA line arrays.

As a Community Interest Company (CIC), part of BASE Culture’s role is to support local community-driven events and assist in the development of local independent artists. The organization is headed by CEO Mike Krompass, who also works on the installation of sound systems across a range of UK venues.

“When I was first introduced to the new TNA line array, I was blown away,” he says. “We installed the system into several venues and achieved amazing results — every client was thrilled with how it sounded, so naturally, having seen and heard it in action, and be received so positively, we wanted to place it into BASE Culture HQ.”

Launched earlier this year, the TNA line array was designed for small to medium-sized applications and is based around the TNA-2120SA, a multi-channel active subwoofer with integrated class D amplifier that incorporates dual 12-inch woofers, as well as the TNA1800SA single 18-inch active subwoofer. With three channels amplification, the TNA-2120SA houses six built-in DSP presets and as part of a modular system can power up to six satellite TNA-2051 passive, two-way compact line array loudspeakers.

At BASE Culture, Krompass has deployed a ground stacked system comprising (per side) a TNA-1800S, a TNA-2120SA and four TNA 2051. A pair of HH Electronics TRM-1201 compact, active monitors complete the picture.

“It’s a perfect fit for the venue, maintaining all the high quality and sonic characteristics that you’d expect from the HH brand,” Krompass concludes. “The system is amazingly comparable to high-end line array products, whilst being available at a fraction of the price.”

HH Electronics Tessen Line Array Shines in Tzaneen

The HH Electronics Tessen Line Array recently made a splash at the Tzaneen Pastors Fraternal Worship Conference, held at the AFM Fountain of Life Church.

The ground-stacked configuration of the HH Electronics TNA-1800S, TNA-2120SA, and TNA-2051 delivered exceptional sound quality that impressed attendees.

According to Chimmy Machimana, the Front of House sound engineer for the event, “The HH Electronics Tessen Line Array blew me away. The sound was crystal clear with a very punchy low end, and the coverage was impressive. More impressive is what we were able to achieve in a room with very challenging acoustics. As you can see, the space is only at the tail end of a construction effort. The sanctuary is yet to be carpeted and treated for sound. “

Pastor Frank Ntlemo, a Pastor and musician at the conference, was equally impressed with the line array, stating that they planned to secure funds to have it installed in their new church building. It’s a testament to the quality of the Tessen Line Array that it left such an impression on attendees.

Dr Pat Malungani, owner of Mbhetse Productions, a sound hire company, also had positive feedback about HH Electronics. He praised the clarity of the TRE-1201 model and its ability to deliver pristine sound even in challenging acoustic environments. We used the TRE-1201 on stage as monitors for the speaker and lead vocalist with exceptional results.

Overall, the HH Electronics Tessen Line Array was a standout at the Tzaneen Pastors Fraternal Worship Conference. It’s a powerful tool that can elevate any worship experience and is sure to impress anyone who hears it. We are excited by the overwhelmingly positive response to the brand in the region and are confident that our efforts to support our local retail partners to promote it will yield great results.

HH Electronics TNA Line Array Presses Case at Cidermill Theatre

Photo: Andy Marshall & Acanthus Clews Architects


The Cidermill Theatre is a new performing arts theatre owned and run by Chipping Camden School in Gloucestershire, UK. Built to serve both the school and the wider Cotswold community, the £4million venue was opened in October 2022 at a launch event which featured actor Ben Miller and chart-topping singer Jennifer Paige, who performed a set including her international hit Crush.

Centred on the Rockspring Auditorium (capacity 292 seated, 450 standing), the complex also includes a dance studio, black box studio, lounge area, rehearsal spaces, classroom, café and bar. The Theatre enjoys a full range of professional facilities and is quickly developing an impressive programme of theatrical performances, live music, dance, cinema screenings and talks. An essential component of any modern, flexible performing arts centre is its audio provision, and the Theatre consulted with specialist Michael Krompass at BASE Culture about a suitable system.

Krompass had no hesitation in recommending HH Electronics’ new TNA line array, having experienced a demonstration of the system when it was launched. Perfect for small to medium sized venues, the TNA offers a compact, active package that is easy to set up and packs a powerful punch that belies its size. The system is based around the TNA-2120SA, a multi-channel active subwoofer with integrated Class D amplifier which features two high power 12” low frequency woofers with exceptionally high output, and the TNA1800SA a powerful single 18” active low frequency subwoofer. With three channels of high performance amplification, the TNA-2120SA houses six cutting edge built-in DSP presets and as part of a modular system can power up to six satellite TNA-2051 passive, two-way compact line array loudspeakers, offering an ideal solution that does away with the extra expense of rack amplifiers and processors.

The main Rockspring auditorium was equipped with a full system comprising one TNA2120SA, two TNA1800SA and six TNA2051 units per side. BASE Culture also supplied five HH Electronics TRM-1201 12” active stage monitors and a single TRM-1500 active sub for use as a drum fill. In order to maximise the flexibility of the space, the system is ground-stacked, its easy portability enabling quick setup and take down times.

Cidermill Theatre Technician Laurence Iles is impressed by the system: “We definitely made the right choice by going with Michael’s recommendation. The system is perfect for the space, sounds brilliant and has more than enough headroom to cater for everything we stage within the auditorium. It’s most definitely a high quality system that comes in at a very competitive price.”

Michael Krompass of BASE Culture added: “The HH TNA line array system was a superb fit for The Cidermill Theatre install. Its elegant look and sleek aesthetic compliment the theatre design perfectly. The PA packs a punch, sounds outstanding and is easily comparable to systems many times its price range.

“HH was the perfect choice and the client has been blown away by the results. I love the bottom end, clarity and smooth natural compression that it throws out. HH is now my go-to choice for venues of all shapes and sizes – dependable, high-quality and always exceeds sonic expectations.”

Onehunga High School Case Study

Onehunga High School was established in 1959 on its Pleasant Street site, situated in one of Auckland’s oldest suburbs overlooking the Manukau Harbour. Many families have long histories in the area and have many second or third-generation students. This gives the school a strong sense of tradition and
continuity. In addition, Onehunga High School is committed to providing lifelong learning for the community. As the college looks forward to equipping pupils for life in the 21st century, they require transformative audio, visual and control system updates.

An audio solution for two new state of the art teaching blocks was required. The first, a two basketball court gymnasium with exercise room, locker rooms and teaching spaces. And the second a new technical block catering to the sciences, woodwork, metalwork, art and two commercial-grade kitchens. An atrium space in the technical block also hosts school functions including catered meals where guests can be seated at tables and served directly from the kitchens.

In teaching areas with suspended ceilings, HH Electronics TNi-C4 ceiling speakers were used to provide quality sound while offering a budget-friendly solution. The TNi-C4 is a 4” coaxial speaker with a fully enclosed backcan with ported enclosure extending the low- frequency response over that of a non-backcan version.

onehunga 3

To maintain audio continuity, the TNi-W4 surface-mount version of the speaker was used in areas where there was no ceiling and the services exposed. The two-piece mounting bracket ensured quick and simple installation.

ITL Technologies, a company with more than 25 years’ experience in delivering quality data and networked solutions won the AV contract, and this experience would enable Onehunga High School to deliver a top- notch learning environment for students and guests.
