We recently expanded our Chabad House at Rutgers University. During construction, we looked at many options for speakers, amplifiers, etc.
For in-ceiling and in-wall speakers, Noble Fidelity stood out from the pack in terms of price, performance, and sonic ability.
We contacted Greg Ford, who was extremely helpful in making sure we would get the absolute BEST sound possible in our ~6400 sq. ft. hall. He guided us every step of the way.
We purchased 3 pairs of L-82 in-walls, and 3 pairs of L-85 LCRS in-ceilings. The in-walls are in the front of the room, with the in-ceilings halfway towards the back, with the angled speaker pointing towards the back.
We are using 3 Odyssey Audio Stratos Stereo amplifiers, with the upgraded capacitor bank/current handling: http://www.odysseyaudio.com/products-stratos-stereo.html Each amp powers one pair of in-walls and in-ceilings, for a 4 ohm load.
When we turned the system on for the first time, to say the we were BLOWN AWAY would be an understatement. These speakers surpassed our wildest expectations. The handled transients and dynamic passages with ease, and there were details that I have yet to hear any other in-ceiling or in-wall speaker reproduce. Then, we raised the volume…
WOW!!! Not a SINGLE hint of strain or stress. These speakers can really push air around! At full volume, while being way too loud, they were just as clear, and clean, as they were at lower volumes.
If you’re considering any of Noble Fidelity’s products, just BUY them! You will be VERY happy you did!
Side note: We were originally quoted over $15,000.00 from a “professional” A/V company to install speakers/amps. Needless to say, we ended up saving over $5,000.00 AND getting a better sounding set of speakers!
