Webster firm overhauls Sibley Building sound system

Rochester Business Journal
January 29, 2014

Webster-based Ashly Audio Inc. has overhauled the sound system of the Sibley Building, centering changes on processing, amplification and control.

The commercial audio manufacturer outfitted the historic building with new technology, working with the Presentation Source Inc., a local audio integration firm that installed and designed the new system.

The previous sound system was 20 years old.

“The owners wanted to add some outdoor loudspeakers to the entrances, and they wanted to be able to play different music sources at different entrances,” said Alan Clayton, sales representative of the Presentation Source.   “The old system had zero multi-zone support.”

Music will impact crowd control at entrances, drawing in sidewalk passersby and discouraging loitering, officials said.

“A lot of things go into choosing this kind of equipment, not the least of which is the inclusion of local manufacturers when possible,” Clayton said. “That’s especially significant given the historic nature of the Sibley Building.”
