THE GATEWAY CLIPPER

"THREE RIVERS QUEEN"

Project Duration: 2016

The Gateway Clipper Fleet offers riverboat cruises that feature dining, guided tours, dancing, live music, and other entertainment. We recently had the opportunity to replace the sound system on one of their boats, the "Three Rivers Queen". Since they offer a diverse set of programming they needed a sound system that was easy to operate and able adapt to the needs of each type of cruise. Their existing system was clunky to operate and was unable to accommodate all of the configurations they desired. The speakers had also been severely weather-damaged and were not functioning properly (some of the speakers were not even exterior speakers to begin with). We were able to provide them with a new system built around an Ashly amplifier with built-in DSP and a remote interface which allows them to change between the different configurations they need. We also added a weatherproof mic jack on the upper deck for tour guides, a mic jack on their second deck, and a mic jack in the pilot's cabin. We replaced the mismatched speakers with Community R1.5 weatherproof loudspeakers. Now, the "Queen" is easier for the crew to operate and is properly outfitted for the harsh conditions that it faces on the water.
