DFX completed a sound system installation at Barb's Harley-Davidson Motorcycle Dealership.

Collingswood, NJ

At the time the dealership reached out to us, they were playing music through one of the bikes on the showroom floor. They asked us to design a system that would provide even coverage throughout the entire shop as well as outside for their outdoor events. Since many employees here at DFX are Harley enthusiasts, we jumped at the opportunity to work with Barb!

We choose JBL Control 65 full range pendant speakers for the showroom. These speakers not only provide consistent and wide 120 degree coverage, but they are also visually pleasing for open architecture ceilings, like the one in Barb’s. We also painted all the unistrut to match the showroom ceiling, to ensure a clean and unobtrusive look to the finished installation. For the bathrooms and motorshop/retail section, we chose JBL Control 24 CT’s. These high-power ceiling speakers provide wide frequency response and low distortion for high sound level capability.

Throughout riding season, Barb’s hosts many outdoor events and is often a starting place for special rides. In order to provide a consistent flow of music for the outdoor area and parking lot, we chose to lead with Paso C55DMSTW full range waterproof speakers. The wide frequency response and acoustically balanced enclosure provides superb music reproduction and high efficiency. It was an honor to work with Barb and her team!

Leisuretowne Community

Leisuretowne Community

The Leisuretowne Community is very active, with many different types of events occurring in the community center, such as dance lessons, bingo, theater performances, corporate events, board meetings, and art classes.

DFX upgraded the Leisuretowne community center’s old Crestron system, which was not working properly. The Crestron programming needed significant updates and members of the community wanted the system to have better functionality.

DFX upgraded all of the Crestron programming and added some new features, such as a Crestron AM/FM tuner, ceiling speakers, and a high-quality camera to record performances on stage with zoom and focus control. Because the old sound output was distorted, we installed a much better Biamp Audio Flex audio processor. We installed our new equipment to work with the A/V and lighting equipment that was previously in place. Adding improvements to an already existing system helped keep the project within budget.

With our Crestron updates, the entire system worked seamlessly through automation and touch panel control. The old stage lights, mixing console, microphones, and new ceiling speakers all tied in to the automated system. We programmed convenient presets for the community members to use through the touch panel, such as AM/FM tuner presets for different stations and volumes, and audio processor presets for different rooms, volumes, and processing. The system has plug and play capability, and the password-protected touch panel is very user friendly, allowing the members of the Leisuretowne community to operate it with ease.

Philadelphia Race Street Connector Project

Philadelphia Race Street Connector Project

DFX participated in putting together the lighting installation for the Philadelphia Race Street Connector, and attended the opening for the first section of the project.

We assisted with the public art project titled Marquee, which is described below:

The Race Street Connector is the first example of how DRWC plans to connect Philadelphia and Old City to the waterfront and the new Race Street Pier. A combination of design elements will be unveiled to show connectivity to the river and to improve the pedestrian and bike experience, including a dedicated bike lane, signage, benches, bollards, curb realignments, increased sidewalk widths, crosswalks, plantings, and a dramatic light screen along the right-side wall of the underpasses. A new public art project will also be installed, entitled Marquee, an LED Work by artists Richard Tochia and Greenhouse Media. Marquee is comprised of a 60′ by 4′ horizontal LED screen mounted on the west-facing side of the I-95 overpass over Race Street in Old City. This LED screen displays live-feed images of the surface of the Delaware River, captured by cameras at the water’s edge, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Several officials connected to the project spoke at the opening, including Philadelphia’s Mayor Nutter. It was a pleasure to be a part of this project to improve the Race Street Connector.
