DPAC is Big . . . But Is It Loud Enough?


Abstract:
The new Durham Performing Arts Center advertises that it has a state of the art sound system. However, an investigation has revealed that the center sacrificed sound quality to meet its budget. This may cause acts to rent additional speakers which would place a financial burden on the touring performer. Some were wondering how the center was built so cheaply, and sacrificing sound quality may be one way the city was able to do so.
