            In Front of the Balcony, you can see project of 40 Speakers. Two SR1 and Two SR5 (4 Subwoofers) are behind historical pipe Organ (out of order).

              Thanks for the picture and schematic, Michel. I look forward to hearing about how well the project turns out.</p>

              </p>

              PS: Apropos of nothing, I wonder if Allen is going to continue identifying their Elite series instrument with Roman numerals? Opus I, Opus II, Opus III--not a big deal. But "Opus MCDDDLXXXIII" looks a little pretentious, if not silly (in my opinion)!</p>

                Good question. I'll check on their website to see if it is Allen doing that or us. You sound like you believe they are going to sell a lot of the Elite models.</P>

                  Hi,</p>

                  I wouldn't worry about the roman numerals until they reach Opus 100 (Opus C). They are still a long ways from that.</p>

                      The Old Organ is out of order. Organ case is in absolutely bad state (dangerous!). Cout of restauration is more more expensive, and this organ is classified historical.

                        OK-I admit I exaggerated a bit to make a point..

                        And while I'm at it, I acknowledge that "MCDDDLXXXIII" is not a possible Roman numeral (If a mistake while typing is a "typo," is a mistake why playing a "playo"?)[*-)]

                          If the organ is classified "historical", then that's even the more reason for it to be restored.  What a horrible pity.

                            I don't think Allen is using roman numerals, as on our preliminary spec sheet, it is listed as Opus 3.</p>

                              I was making a joke. I believe Allen is going to be very successful with the Elite line.</P>
