Overview

The latest Wenger technology gives you three attractive, effective acoustical shell options to fit your application and budget. Its mobility allows you to acoustically transform almost any space within a facility into a performance venue.

We pioneered acoustical shell design, so it’s no surprise that our honeycomb core panel construction delivers enhanced acoustics to both the ensemble and the audience.

The Wenger Advantage

  • Easy, Fast Operation – Each shell can be set up in just 5 seconds by one person.
  • Adjustable Canopy – Adjusts to four different angles to optimize reflection to the audience.
  • No Visual Hardware on Front Panels – Eliminates unsightly screws and brackets that may cause unwanted light reflections.
  • Economic Solution – Lowest priced solution for instrumental and choral use.

Usage

Portable design allows almost any space to become a performance venue with simple one-person setup.

Legacy units promote excellent ensemble and enhance acoustical projection toward the audience. Add additional shells to cover larger areas.

1-Person Setup

  • Roll shell into place. Adjust snap-in pins for desired canopy angle.

  • Lift canopy to preset angle for optimum sound projection.

  • Turn handle of lift mechanism to set shell height into performance position.

Innovative Design for Easy Setup

  • Easy-to-turn handle on the frame raises the shell to the maximum height in just six turns.

  • Snap-in pin sets canopy to any of four preferred angles.

  • Guides allow for smooth height adjustment and stop panel at full height.

  • A continuous hinge allows canopy to fold and raise easily.

  • Shells nest together for compact storage.

Construction

  • Upper panels are flat in standard 1″ (25 mm) thick. Lower panel is ¾” (19 mm) thick. All are 6′ (1.8 m) wide.
  • Lower fixed panel is constructed of ¾” (19 mm) thick composite laminated wood with edgebanding
  • Easy, intuitive lift mechanism for raising and lowering shell
  • Canopy folds flat for storage, and middle panel overlaps bottom panel
  • Legs protrude in front of shell to provide counterweighted base design
  • No kicker panel, bottom panel rests 7″ (178 mm) from floor
  • Canopy is 36″ (914 mm) high providing less coverage than Legacy Classic model
  • Fully extended height is 13′ 3″ (4 m)

I cannot believe the difference in sound when the Legacy shell is up. Our gym has very good acoustics, but I can clearly tell whether or not the shell is up. The Legacy shells are very easy to work with – my kids and I can easily handle them.   Cydney Dixon
