Radio l'Am is the club responsible for running morning announcements, and certain lunchtime events. We are situated at the back of the cafeteria.
We currently run the show using a simple Shure Microphone, connected to a Mackie mixer using XLR. We also have line-in powered by a simple 3.5mm to RCA cord. From the output, our signal is sent to 2 places: First to the Bogen-Multicom2000 amplifier in the office by 1/4" for distribution to the rest of the school (12W RMS, used for daily morning announcements). Second, Radio l'Am is connected by XLR to Stage Crew's NexTech amplifier backstage (recently installed by me) for use during lunchtime events, as it is only hooked up to the cafeteria. (there is a 1/4" out beside the amplifier for plugging into the mixer in the sound cart if needed.)
