Sorry if a question like this has been asked before. I know that, at least in all or most Regal theaters built in the past few years, that they've been installing Klipsch speakers in all of their non-IMAX theaters. What brands do chains such as AMC, Cinemark, etc... primarily use?

We use QSC for new builds and upgrades, older buildings are JBL - we have 7 locations in Michigan.

If I recall correctly the AMC ETX auditorium used for ShowEast had QSC speakers.

The last one I built was a Showcase 16. JBL's were spec'd along with Ashly amps.

We are converting to Crown and QSC amps and getting away from ancient EV's and older QSC's.
All JBL screen channels and surrounds mostly with a few EV surrounds.
Pretty much all the other junk has been pulled.
