Genelec Monitors Chosen for Philadelphia’s Montgomery County Community College

When the Central Campus of Montgomery County Community College (MCCC), located near Philadelphia, wanted to add another control room to the three studios that constitute its Sound Recording and Music Technology Program, the college chose Genelec monitors.

The school hired acclaimed studio architect John Storyk of Walters-Storyk Design Group for the design and construction and fitting it with a combination of digital and analog equipment, including an Solid State Logic 9000 console and Studer 24-track and Ampex two-track decks. They stayed consistent for the new room by specifying speakers from Genelec, the same brand that outfits all of their other three studios.

The facility, which came on line in April, has five Genelec 8351 Smart Active Monitors, part of Genelec’s “The Ones” line. It is configured for a 5.1 surround monitoring design, as well as a Genelec 7370A 12-inch powered subwoofer.

“This is the ultimate mix room, so it had to have Genelecs,” said David Ivory, director of the program. “The other three studios each have Genelec 8050A Active Studio Monitors, so we’re still an all-Genelec facility, and everyone likes it that way.”

The room’s surround capability will be useful for the MCCC’s broadcast studio, whose 35-by-40-foot dimensions also allow it to be used as a tracking space.
