It shall be noted that all cables shall be installed in continuous lengths from endpoint to endpoint. No splices shall be allowed unless noted otherwise. Refer to Project Drawings which indicate the cable routes to follow and the termination location(s) in the arena. It is the contractor's responsibility to survey the site and include all necessary costs to perform the installation as specified. Beginning installation means contractor accepts existing conditions. The contractor will be responsible for identifying and reporting to the Site Coordinator(s) any existing damage to walls, flooring, tiles and furnishings in the work area prior to start of work. All damage to interior spaces caused by the installation of cable, raceway or other hardware must be repaired by the Contractor. Repairs must match preexisting color and finish of walls, floors and ceilings. Any contractor-damaged ceiling tiles are to be replaced by the contractor to match color, size, style and texture. Where unacceptable conditions are found, the Contractor shall bring this to the attention of the construction supervisor immediately. A written resolution will follow to determine the appropriate action to be taken. Qualified personnel utilizing state-of-the-art equipment and techniques shall complete all installation work. During pulling operation an adequate number of workers shall be present to allow cable observation at all points of duct entry and exit as well as the feed cable and operate pulling machinery. WIRING Cable pulling shall be done in accordance with cable manufacturer’s recommendations and ANSI/IEEE C2 standards. Manufacturer’s recommendations shall be a part of the cable submittal. Recommended pulling tensions and pulling bending radius shall not be exceeded. Any cable bent or kinked to radius less than recommended dimension shall not be installed. If any installed cable is kinked to a radius less than recommended dimension it shall be replaced by the contractor with no additional cost to the project. All wiring shall be run in conduit, in a secured metal raceway or in modular furniture as designated on the floorplan(s). All cable shall be free of tension at both ends. Avoid abrasion and other damage to cables during installation. Pulling Lubricant may be used to ease pulling tensions. Lubricant shall be of a type that is non-injurious to the cable jacket and other materials used. Lubricant shall not harden or become adhesive with age. The Cable system will be tested and documented upon completion of the installation as defined in the Section below. A pull cord (nylon; 1/8” minimum) shall be co-installed with all cable installed in any conduit. Should it be found by UW Eau Claire, that the materials or any portion thereof, furnished and installed under this contract, fail to comply with the specifications and drawings, with the respect or regard to the quality, amount of value of materials, appliances or labor used in the work, it shall be rejected and replaced by the Contractor and all work distributed by changes necessitated in consequence of said defects or imperfections shall be made good at the Contractor's expense. Care should be taken in the use of cable ties to secure and anchor free-run cabling and cabling inside racks. Ties should not be over tightened as to compress the cable jacket. No sharp burrs should remain where excess length of the cable tie has been cut. Cable sheaths shall be protected from damage from sharp edges. Where a cable passes over a sharp edge, a bushing or grommet shall be used to protect the cable. A coil of 4 feet in each cable shall be placed in the ceiling at the last support (e.g. J-Hook, Bridal Ring, etc.) before the cables enter a fishable wall, conduit, surface raceway or box. These "service loops" shall be secured at the last cable support before the cable leaves the ceiling and shall be coiled from 100% to 200% of the cable recommended minimum bend radius. Inside the rack, bundle cables according to nominal levels. Microphone, line level, speaker, video and power cables must be routed separately on nominal four-inch centers. Route power, video and speaker cables on one side of rack; route microphone, line level cables and telephone/data cables on the other side. All cables and wiring are to be logically, legibly and permanently labeled for easy identification. Each wire shall be permanently marked with a number at each end. This applies to wire within a rack assembly as well as wire running in conduit. Only machine printed heat shrink or self-laminating labels will be acceptable. Kroy, Panduit or Brady labels are typical. Assign a unique alphanumeric designation to each microphone cable. Locate the cable designation at the start and end of each cable run, within 2 inches of the point of termination or connection. These cable designations shall also be recorded on the as-built drawings. EQUIPMENT INSTALLATION Support loudspeakers and subwoofers securely, maintaining a 5:1 safety margin. Chain is NOT acceptable. Contractor shall furnish all mounting brackets, raceways, sleeves, rack rails, termination plugs, jacks, faceplate mounting hardware, and other unique components as necessary to securely mount equipment and panels. Contractor shall furnish all required equipment whether or not specifically mentioned in these specifications or on the drawings. Such devices shall include but not be limited to hardware, fasteners, rack screws, rack brackets, power supplies, impedance matching devices, and other devices as necessary to interface, control, or balance the audio systems. Contractor shall not mount any speaker to any structure that is not sufficiently supportive and free of vibration or shake. Play a pure sine wave signal at 1000 Hz and adjust level to approximately 80 dB at the center of the arena. Slowly sweep the frequency from 20 Hz to 5000 Hz. Locate and eliminate any rattles or audible vibrations caused by the loudspeakers or mounting hardware. COOPERATION The Contractor shall cooperate with other trades and UW Eau Claire personnel in locating work in a proper manner. Should it be necessary to raise or lower or move longitudinally any part of the work to better fit the general installation, such work shall be done at no extra cost to UW Eau Claire, provided such decision is reached prior to actual installation. The Contractor shall check the location of electrical outlets with respect to other installations before installing. UW Eau Claire staff electricians shall provide all high-voltage wiring, conduit, junction boxes and outlets. These locations shall be coordinated and verified between UW Eau Claire electricians, project representative and Contractor. TESTING AND ACCEPTANCE Component Performance: Verify that each individual component in the system is in proper working order and meets manufacturer’s published specification for noise and distortion. System Adjustment: Optimize the gain settings of each component to optimize signal to noise. All active components shall be adjusted so that clipping occurs simultaneously at each component (before compression and limiting is set). Equalization: Initial equalization curve shall be flat (±2 dB) from 100 Hz to 3000 Hz and then shall roll off at 3 dB/octave above 3000 Hz. Do not attempt to equalize cancellations caused by reflections combining with direct sound energy. Final equalization shall be adjusted for natural reproduction of speech and minimum feedback potential. RFI & Oscillations: Using an oscilloscope with a 20 MHz bandwidth, verify that the system is free of spurious oscillation and RFI pickup in the absence of any input signal. Perform the testing with the lights on at 50% and 100%. Polarity: Maintain an absolutely strict polarity for all wiring, from microphone receptacle to the loudspeakers. Be prepared to demonstrate absolute polarity of system. Measure the total impedance of cable and speaker load at a minimum of four frequencies between 100 Hz and 10K Hz. Verify that measured results are appropriate to anticipated sum of cable resistance and loudspeaker impedance. Verify that the audio systems are free of hum, buzz, feedback, interference, spurious oscillations, digital artifacts or extraneous noises of any kind. Verify uniformity of sound coverage through the seating areas. Sound level readings shall be +/- 3dB averaged throughout the seating area on one-third octave centers within speaker range. COMMISSIONING The contractor is responsible to perform acceptance tests as indicated below for the arena when it is completed. All tests shall be documented. The Contractor is responsible for supplying all equipment and personnel necessary to conduct the acceptance tests. Prior to testing, the Contractor shall provide a summary of the proposed test plan for each cable type including equipment to use used, set-up, test frequencies or wavelengths, results format, etc. The method of testing shall be approved by UW Eau Claire.
