Italian Community Center

Milwaukee, Wisconsin

For more than 30 years, this 60,000 square foot conference center has offered outstanding accommodations for large meetings and events in the heart of Milwaukee’s old Italian community just south of downtown.

Lewis Sound was not the first sound contractor to work in the new facility; we were brought in only after two failed attempts by others to install a satisfactory system.

The system we designed and installed includes

  • A room-combining sound reinforcement system for the ballroom.
  • A very carefully designed speaker system designed to overcome the bad effects of an unusually high, barrel-shaped ceiling in the ballroom.
  • Sound reinforcement for Fiesta Hall, a large meeting room that seats 350. This system includes nine tightly focused 12″ loudspeakers firing down from a high ceiling, chosen to minimize echo from highly reflective walls.
  • Paging systems throughout the conference center
  • Facility-wide zoned background music.

 

The center’s owner has been extremely pleased with the Lewis systems and has brought us back repeatedly for system updates over the years. “Lewis came in and did a terrific job,” says business manager Patrick Morgan. “We’ve had nothing but compliments since they did that.”
