LR gets new sound system


A new sound system was being installed Tuesday in the gym at Lake Roosevelt, including new mixing equipment and a new wireless mic system, just in time for a spring music concert.

The new equipment became necessary as the old equipment failed at the high school graduation ceremony last year. The need for new sound equipment was apparent at other events as well, such as a recent visit from Oklahoma politician and artist Enoch Kelly Haney.

“It’s rather embarrassing when you pay someone to come in to do a presentation to the kids, and they traveled far, and you can’t hear them,” said Adam Foged, the information technology director at Lake Roosevelt who helped get bids for the project and presented them to Superintendent Paul Turner.

Hoffman Prosystems of Spokane designed and is installing the equipment. They started on Monday and finished Tuesday. Total cost for the equipment, labor, and installation is $7,500.

The old speaker system is being tested with the new equipment to see if it will make the grade. If not, it will also have to be replaced.

The first event with the new sound system will be an art, band, and choir concert at 6:30 p.m. tonight (Wednesday).
