Peavey Replaces Temple Theatre Speakers

Future audiences at the Temple Theatre will likely notice much better sound.

Speakers that date back to 1947 have been replaced with the latest Peavey technology.

The original cabinets have also been refurbished.

Peavey engineer Bobby Martin said the audio will have a more pristine sound.

"The original speakers that were inside them were somewhat worn out. And we replaced all those and we're also furnishing the Temple Theatre with the power amplifiers to drive these devices with as well," Martin said.

One of the speaker cabinets bears the name of successful singer and songwriter Paul Davis of Meridian and the date, Feb. 5, 1967.

Plans are to test the new speakers Monday.

One of the first shows that will use the new equipment is a showing of the classic movie, "To Kill A Mockingbird".

There will be two showings of that movie Tuesday, at 10 a.m. for school children and another at 7 p.m. for the public. The day tickets are $3.00 each. Tickets are $5.00 each for the evening show.
