PA System Installation at Styal Women's Prison Cheshire  


Styal Women’s Prison approached Blacka Acoustics to fit a, reliable sound solution into their Gymnasium and ‘Keep Fit’ area. Blacka relished in the challenge ahead of them and provided a complete solution. With over a decade’s experience in dealings with all things Sound and Light, Blacka Acoustics the installation was undertaken with our usual efficiency.

We were instructed that the prison wanted a public address system to play music whilst the inmates were training and doing other rehabilitation tasks such as keep fit, weight training and other informal programmes. Firstly we installed a tamper proof amplifier rack, (manufactured by our own fair hand) the amplifier rack design is one of true craftsmanship and longevity. We used a Crown XLS801 to power the speakers, one side of the amplifier ran two Blacka TFR 801’s and the other side ran two Blacka TFR 1201’s, the Blacka TFR 801’s were installed in one area of the Gym and the other two Blacka TFR 1201’s were mounted in the Keep fit area. To ensure the speakers were not tampered with we fixed them above regulation height so they were right out of the reach of mischievous inmates. Styal Women’s Prison also required a radio headset for trainers and staff to announce and be clearly heard during training sessions, we know AKG is top quality for all their products so we decided to use a AKG WMS40 radio belt pack system. A Cloud CX163 Zone mixer controls the whole package and a compressor was used to compress the radio headset to avoid feedback. The other dual purpose for this unit is to ensure the system will not overload thus, compressing it to a limit so the system will never blow +and the speakers and amps can last a much greater time. The playback options were vast and after narrowing it down we decided upon a Numark CDN35 CD player and Denon cassette deck for the inmates to play their favourite songs and such to make the time pass more quickly.

Styal Women’s Prison have now got a solution that will last generations and they were so happy with our options and guidance they asked us to put them on our case studies so that other similar ventures can benefit from the turnkey solution and excellent customer service Blacka Acoustics provide. Also to note the Prison opted for our 24/7/365 platinum support service so they can rest assured if they have any problems whatsoever we will be there to solve it in a matter of minutes.
