Production Specifications

Palace Theatre of Marion, Ohio

The Palace is a historic 1400 seat theater-style venue located in downtown Marion, Ohio.  Because of the design of the theater, extreme sound pressure levels from the stage are unnecessary and can present a challenge to the front of house engineer.  Its relatively small size produces the following general spl variations:

  • Loudspeaker coverage = (+ -)2dB
  • Stage to Farthest Seat = (-)12dB

All of the listed equipment is owned and maintained by The Palace, and is in place and working at the venue.  This equipment has been assembled to meet the production needs of both professional touring acts and the various pageants and shows hosted by the venue.  While opinions on brand names vary greatly from artist to artist, we are confident in the ability of this equipment to meet your needs at The Palace.
