    Speakers

    I am after recommendations on a wall mounted speaker I can stick in classrooms next to the whiteboards so the can hook up computers / videos etc ...

    Ideally a single box with a built in amp that allows for 2 stereo inputs (one from computer and one from video/dvd)

    Any advice appreciated ...

    I used Edirol MA 7A Monitors on 6 recent W/B Installs

    Dolphin Music

    Are using them just how you described.

    We've got those. Fantastic sound quality and the amp and controls are built in.

    Re: Speakers

    Thanks for that recommendation - it'd be nice to have flatter ones - but i'd be happy with those.

    What do you use to mount them securely?

    I used a pair of AVF Speaker Brackets from B&Q. Work a treat.

    Strange you should mention that .... sad git that I am I had thought about that previously in case any one asked (partly after having to blag my way out of having to recable a complete sound system for a school hall)

    If the leads are premaid, do not have to be laid next to or near infrastructure electrical cabling, involve any activities that cannot be done during a normal school day due to health and safety reasons then I would consider it .... (note the word consider ... it is not a yes ... and is a magic get out clause!)

    Anyone would think that we are a pessimistic bunch that like to prepare for the worst.

    Like I said ... I'm a sad git.

    IT Support is a misnomer here ... the team also look after a large chunk of AV stuff too ... projectors, TVs & Vids (and DVD players), speakers ... in fact we may change our name just to Technical Support ... but that would make us all laugh everytime the phone gets answered ...

    "Technical Support ... Mr Strap? no ... we have no Mr Strap working here ... Jock? oh ... Jock Strap ... testicle support ... very good ..."

    Thank heavens for Jeb Jobs .... brings a smile to my face everytime I think of it.

    Dragging up an old thread here..........

    Are people still using the Edirol MA 7A's? If so are the cables long enough to run down the side of the board plug into a PC?

    I've just been told that we have to take down our current 5.1 setups and reinstall them in our new school. That's one heck of a big job for two of us to do on top of setting up 400 PCs/thin clients and 7 servers in a 5 week stretch in the summer hols. If I can get these and just put up two brackets it'll be a godsend!! Not mentioning the difficulties of getting approval to put up 5.1 speakers including trunking, brackets and a shelf for the sub by the PFI company.....

    Cheers

    I don't know about the Edirol speakers but I use Nuvo Classroom Speakers - 30W amp in a 1-gang backbox (a deep back box) and a pair of nice speakers with wall-mount brackets. They aren't cheap mind!

    We use these for all our whiteboard installs.

    Vision AV-1301 Stereo AMP & SP-1300 Speaker *PAIR* - Misco.co.uk

    OK there's a seperate amp so it's not as neat as some, but as most of our classrooms have a shelf for DVD player/video player already it doesn't pose a problem. Also it has 4 imputs so you can wire all the items in permanetly without swapping cables around, and it has 'PC' and 'DVD' marked on the selector dial so staff can't forget what to select for the devices connected! Also comes with all necessary leads, speaker cable and mounting brackets for speakers and has 2 mic inputs as well. Really versatile and loud enough for any classroom.

    Mike.
